It’s the latest list of bands for the Electric Picnic, featuring a number of acts who played Longitude at the weekend (good news for the agents who get more ker-ching from Festival Republic) which they can now announce. More announcements to come too, including Body & Soul and Other Voices’ stages

Incoming for Stradbally:

James Vincent McMorrow
Hozier (the backlash is in the diary for April 2015)
Bombay Bicyle Club
The 1975
Wild Beasts
Hercules & Love Affair
Cathy Davey
Nick Mulvey
(double bubble for him as he’ll probably also play with SBTRKT)
Seinabo Sey
(his new album will hopefully be better than that first track from it)
The Strypes (back to where they wowed all and sundry in 2012)
Walking On Cars
Le Galaxie
Shit Robot
BP Fallon (man, imagine if some radio station would give the nod to a re-run of the classic BP Fallon Orchestra shows – now, those shows were radio gold)
(great to see the Picnic booker is still reading OTR and taking notes)
The Whereabouts (the Cavan takeover continues)
Trinity Orchestra
Dublin Gospel Choir

Tickets: weekend tickets are €229.50 because you’re left it this late. Sources indicate that tickets are selling like hotcakes so you have been warned.
