, Electric Picnic are due to announce a NEW festival on Wednesday

Update: the festival is called Kaleioscope and details are here so far.

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.
