The Electric Picnic have announced their first set of acts for the festival and our guesswork from last week was fairly accurate. No MIA yet. Or Peter, Bjorn & John. Or Wilco, come to think of it. Still, there are a few months to go for the bookers to make amends with their unfeasibly large chequebooks. And no, we don’t have any tips for Shelbourne Park on Wednesday night.

Acts playing include:

The Beastie Boys
Iggy And The Stooges
Bjork
Jarvis Cocker
The Jesus And Mary Chain
LCD Soundsystem
Primal Scream
The Good, The Bad and The Queen
Modest Mouse
Polyphonic Spree
Craig Armstrong
Soul II Soul
Paul Hartnoll’s The Ideal Condition
Dublin Gospel Choir

Also performing are: Sonic Youth, Aim, The Go Team!, Ratatat, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Ladytron, Jamie Lidell, Damien Dempsey, Mr Scruff, The Magic Numbers, The Undertones, Fujiya & Miyagi, Horace Andy, Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, Marlena Shaw, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk), A Trak, Josh Wink, Electrelane, Bonde do Role, Deerfhoof, Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid, Derrick May, Hextatic, Derrick Carter, The Glimmers, The Elecktrons, DJ Marky.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow and don’t be surprised if they sell out immediately.

Trust me, it will be much better for you than going to see Relentless Extreme Mediocrity rehearse some new songs which sound just like the old songs.
