Three will be returning to the grounds of Stradbally this year for Electric Picnic and are bringing a load of exciting music offerings to the stage.
As a strong supporter of new music, Three will be hosting a brand new stage called Made By Music, a platform dedicated to showcasing some of the nation’s finest emerging electronic music talent alongside international guests. As part of Three’s ‘Made By Music’ initiative, the Saturday night will host a unique collaborative performance from six Irish artists, who have collaborated together over two tracks. David Kitt, Elaine Mai, Fehdah, Kean Kavanagh, Sorcha Richardson and Soulé will contribute to a never before seen performance which will include their collaborations ‘Follow the Sound’ and ‘Butterflies’.
So what else is lined up for the Made By Music stage?
One of our favourites, the UK electro-pop R&B singer Shura headlines Friday after another of our loves, the avant contemporary singer and artist Serpentwithfeet, while rising Waterford rapper Alex Gough, Sports Team and singer-songwriter Curtis Walsh round off Friday.
Saturday sees performances from R&B English indie five-piece Easy Life, Kentucky garage punk from White Reaper and new wave post-punk trio Working Men’s Club. Irish emerging artists represented on Saturday are the incendiary Dundalk band Just Mustard, a Nialler9 favourite in the R&B live band of Uly, Leinster rapper JYellowL, acoustic trad-trashers The Scratch, indie rock/pop artist Somebody’s Child, producer and songwriter Rob De Boer.

Three will also be providing a dedicated ‘change and chill’ area at this year’s festival. Located opposite the main stage, the area will provide campers the opportunity to recharge their minds and phones.
The ‘charge and chill’ area boasts its own garden area, a ton of hammocks to relax on and a DJ booth featuring performances from Jack Colleran, R.Kitt, Dreamcycles and loads more.
Three has partnered with Lifesaver to provide festival-goers with portable charging banks for the weekend. This premium service will be powered by 100% renewable energy and will be totally mobile, if your bank runs out of power you’ll be able to trade it in for a full one.
Three will also be providing charging locations at three separate locations across the festival. So there’s no danger of having to rely solely on chance to reacquaint you with your mates if your phone dies over the weekend. Deadly.
