With just over a week until the first of Ireland's Big Two music festivals kicks off, the second has added to it's already fantastic bill. Today it was confirmed that the following acts will be strutting their stuff in Stradbally at the Electric Picnic this coming September:
The Rubberbandits (who will allegedly be joined by Crystal Swing...)
Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip
Kormac's Big Band
Sneaky Sound System (DJ set)
I'd probably be a little more excited if I hadn't already heard that the Canadian duo of Stars and Wolf Parade were playing.
Perhaps even better, though, is the confirmation that James Vincent McMorrow will be taking to the Heineken Green Spheres Stage on the Friday of the Oxegen festival. Will be my first time seeing the fantastic singer songwriter and I'm rather excited. Just praying there's no clash with the Black Keys, Vampire Weekend or Arcade Fire...
