As Electric Picnic gets ever closer (a month away now), more details are being revealed.
The mobile home area of the festival, Trailer park which features 30 stages largely made of caravans and mobile homes is the latest to be detailed:
The Mobile Home Stage is where the music happens so expect performances from:
CC Brez, Cirque du Sol, Mutefish, Dublin Ukulele Collective, The Young Folk, The High Hopes Choir, Stomptown Brass, Trinitones, Pearl TN, Paddy Dennehy & The Red Herring, Attention Bébé, Le Freak, Costello, Emma Lou & The Agenda, The Great Okwado, Manden Express, Lethal Dialect, VOXX, The Luna Boys, Aindraias De Staic & The Lacthikos, Daoirí Farrell, Spudgun, Zaska, Spring Tides, Steve Bennett, Dylan Tighe, Jaime Nanci, Risky Business, Tongue Bundle, The Bloody Quills and The D-ridiculous Allstars.
Also expected in the My Lovely Ranch area – a small zoo of rescue animals – mostly sleepy old horses and forgetful donkeys and hairy canines, is Neil Hannon and Cathy Davey’s Rubbish Song for Europe, in which musicians complete their search for a replacement for Father Ted’s My Lovely Horse, (Season 2 Episode 2) featuring 15 finalists performing their best version.
Jimmie Lee’s Juke Joint sees the entire Clarke Family (Jimmie Lee’s grandkids) from deep south Macon, in the state of Georgia – Papa Charlie, Mamma Shirley, Tamala, Jewel, Canci, Johnny, Melissa and Dave returning to host the most authentic Juke Joint this side of the Atlantic – where gumbo and corn bread are served to the sounds of Grand, Fritz Hutchison, Robin James Hurt & The Band of Moonlight Love, Oki’s Wagon, Old Hannah, Moonlookson, Leila Jane & The Healers, Frantics, Lemoncello, Hatchlings, Tashka, Eric Butler and of course the very large and implausibly musical Clark family.
