  1. Well the lineup won't be out till March but in a recent press statement Melvin Benn has said that capacity is being increased to 70,000 and that some areas are changing, sadly Body&Soul after a tenure of 16 years with Electric Picnic won't be at the 2020 edition, I think personally they opted out because of the capacity increase after the crushes that occurred last year during the King Kong Company gig at the Body&Soul main stage on Sunday night. The area replacing Body&Soul is called Mind&Body, don't be surprised to see former Body&Soul staff working there as what else will they be doing at the end of August and starting of September. https://www.leinsterexpress.ie/news/arts-culture-entertainment/500353/electric-picnic-set-to-lose-one-of-its-founding-partners-and-big-attractions.html?fbclid=IwAR2IjkQ7hw5zENMmjZgI7V3II1SfS5rm_HANhGYrjS6o4l9Eq_YUtsLzuos&refresh_ce https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/electric-picnic-capacity-to-be-expanded-to-70-000-next-year-1.4107084
  2. It is indeed I think 2013 was its last year when it attempted to turn completely dance music.
  3. A new festival fixture in the Irish landscape, well an old festival that ran in 1994. 95 covering indie to metal acts, MCD has created the new event with quite interesting lineup of international and national acts, I wish I could make it myself but I have to go to my nephews stag night around the same time in Prague, but I'll throw up the poster for the curious.
  4. Girl Band, Irish punk band added to the lineup, their only Irish show for 2020.
  5. I caught Kruder & Dorfmeister this year at Body&Soul Festival when they headlined Friday night, a great act from Austria who have a similar buzz to Thievery Corporation and Boards of Canada.
  6. My review I hope you like it. https://niallmcquaid.wordpress.com/2019/09/05/electric-picnic-2019-festival-review/
  7. My review for 2019 enjoy folks https://niallmcquaid.wordpress.com/2019/08/08/all-together-now-2019-festival-review/
  8. I think most people said they didn't have gas and security looked no further, so maybe just say you don't have any.
  9. Hi Ibits I was at ATN last year and reviewed it was working during the weekend so there is not that much music reviewed in it, but it should give a jist of what the festival is about. It looks like there is going to be some new additions added this Monday coming and an unconfirmed report from a friend who was having pints in Galway city on Friday night, he was in the company of Paul Hartnoll and his sound engineer, Orbital who played the Big Top the following night at Galway Arts Festival. Hartnoll says he is Waterford bound and that Orbital are doing a live set at All Together Now apparently on the main stage, Friday night. One hell of way to get the party started, bring it on.

  12. Please join my Facebook campaign to bring Aphex Twin to Electric Picnic. https://www.facebook.com/groups/306301782765054/
  13. Worrying news for festivals in Ireland from August onward. https://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/over-200-irish-festivals-at-risk-due-to-rocketing-insurance-costs-and-medical-cover-922761.html
  14. Aphex is away too big for the Glade he got a higher billing than Jon Hopkins for Coachella and Jon Hopkins headlined the Park stage on Saturday 2015 and Four Tet the year before. If anything he should be the Saturday Park headliner.
  15. Well for the big electronic act I propose Aphex Twin, playing the weekend before at Rock en Seine in Paris, he hasn't played Electric Picnic yet but has played two Forbidden Fruits and Oxegen as the last camping festival he played. Judging by his recent US shows he as some amazing new music and his lights, visuals and lasers are second to none. Be it main stage or the Electric Arena marquee.
