Missing the picnic
A very inconsiderate friend has decided to get married in Oxford this weekend, depriving me of my annual Electric Picnic fix. It’s a dangerous game, on his part, though I sense he won’t even notice if I wear my wellies and carry my tent to his wedding. Meanwhile, those of you heading to Stradbally have so many treats in store, and you must fly my pretties, fly to the gigs I need to attend vicariously through you lot. So try fitting this lot in and reporting back at your leisure: Bat for Lashes, Brian Wilson, Billy Bragg, David Kitt, Fleet Foxes, Lykke Li, Lisa Hannigan, Bell X1, Flaming Lips, Florence and the Machine, Jape, J. Tillman, Seasick Steve, Villagers and Zero 7. Oh, and whatever you do, don’t miss Donal Dineen in Body and Soul or DJ Sally at Thisispopbaby. Thanking you all.
