Electric Picnic organisers have just confirmed the line-up for this year’s highly anticipated festival. The annual music event, which takes place in Stradbally, County Laois, will be headlined by multi-Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar, American hip-hop band N.E.R.D., and trip-hop group Massive Attack.
Other acts include Dua Lipa, George Ezra, The Kooks, Wolf Alice and Jungle. English singer-songwriter Ben Howard will also take to the EP stage after a five-year hiatus, and he’ll be joined by art rocker St Vincent.
Organisers have promised that the list doesn’t end there, confirming on their website that there’s still more to come. For the full line-up so far, see the pic below.
The festival, which kicks off on 31 August until 3 September, has been taking place since 2004 and loyal fans are delighted with the new line-up.
