Artlot forest-set stage is the latest area to be announced for Electric Picnic this year.

ArtLot began as a a derelict site, an open-air public with a monthly programme of visual art and performance that was closed when hotel developers took over the space it occupied. From there, it move to Electric Picnic where it has offered a lineup of alternative visual arts and performances over the last 10 years.

Their lineup for 2024 includes:

Fancy Dan, Calum Agnew, Joe Maxi, Taylor Byrne, Kellie Lewis, Harry Fennel, Weather Underground, Graham Sweeney, Bees and Sawdust, Georgia G, Euan Hart, Kope, Kyla Belle and Gemma Cox.

Additionally, ArtLot’s nighttime program will showcase performances by Granny’s Gaff resident DJ Sharpson, Jamie Ennis, Bob Manzanilla, Arise DJs, CNC and R3D’s House. The underground LGBTQ+ night Rathaus will host a major party to conclude the festival on Sunday night.

ArtLot is a celebration of creativity, with festival-goers able to enjoy artworks by renowned mural painter Kevin Bohan, flying JellyFish installations by Limerick-based textile artist Rachel Maloney, and newly commissioned sculptures by artist Rosaleen Dunne.

Additionally, Alternative Dublin will offer festival attendees free painting lessons and after-dark UV painting parties.
