I’ve made an Electric Picnic DJ Mix every year since 2008. It’s always been a blast to make and a highlight of the site for me personally. 2016’s mix features 22 artists on the Electric Picnic lineup over 20 songs in just under 55 minutes.

It’s for bumping for your festival prep for the next week or in the car on the way down to Stradbally. Last year’s mix.

I’m DJing at the Red Bull Tropical Garden at EP on Saturday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Millionyoung @ Austin Convention Center

While wandering around the ginormous space that is the Austin Convention Center, I bumped into Millionyoung playing a show at a gear expo. Well in the foyer beside a Starbucks. It’s was a pretty weird experience but the three-piece managed to pull it off in the end with a reverb-heavy engaging set. The Good Natured followed them in the same place.

Clock Opera @ Lattitude 30

My last band at the festival were probably one of my favourites. Anyone familiar with Clock Opera’s epic and rising tracks thus far will be sated by just how tight the band were live. In fact these edifying, accomplished and brilliant songs like ‘Belongings’, ‘One And For All’ and ‘A Piece Of String’ are pretty joyous in a festival-defining kind of way.
