Update: the announcement has been pushed back to week of 18th.
The organisers of Electric Picnic, Festival Republic have said that they will announce a new festival on Wednesday, the same day that they will reveal the lineup for the sold out Electric Picnic festival.
In an email invite to media, Melvin Benn said:
“With Electric Picnic now fully sold out he will also announce initial details of a brand new festival taking place this summer. The stunning location of this new festival – brought to you by the Electric Picnic family – has never before been used and will provide the perfect backdrop to a new event on the summer festival calendar.”
A most interesting development indeed.
