OK, just over a week to go until the ninth year of Electric Picnic happens. Yes, the last festival of the summer season in Ireland happens next weekend in Stradbally, Co. Laois. EP is the big one. There is loads on from the huge musical lineup which goes from Azealia Banks to the xx to the Theatre of Food to house and techno-leanings of The Forest Stage, the Comedy tent, to the Salty Dog shipwreck stage, Body & Soul, Global Green to Screenadelica where you can get some specially commissioned gig poster.
There’s also Casa Bacardi which will host Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, The 2 Bears, Crazy P, DJ Tu-Ki, Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani, Stevie G and more at their area this year and who are responsible for the pair of VIP tickets I am giving away today.
I have a VIP pair of tickets to giveaway which includes access to the VIP area, VIP camping, the Bacardi VIP area and Bacardi drinks tokens.
Q: To enter tell me the name of one of my 15 favourite acts from last year who are playing in 2012?
