Trinity Orchestra, Main Stage
Trinity Orchestra, Main Stage:
One of the standout idiosyncratic highlights at last year's Electric Picnic was Trinity Orchestra ducking and diving with Daft Punk's Discovery.
A return was always on the cards and the orchestra of students from Trinity College in Dublin find themselves on the main stage covering Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of the Moon.
It's perfect morning-after-the-night-before fare for the tribes who've flocked from the campsites and B&Bs to loll in the sun. The orchestra bend and twist those Floyd tunes, infusing them with great drama and playful experimental psych frills, while the vocalists help to weave things even further and wider. At the end of the set, they add a flurry of Stevie Wonder covers.
The sun's out and the Orchestra finish to a sea of wide smiles. Hit.
