    POD CONCERTS & AIKEN PROMOTIONS PRESENT

    THE ELECTRIC PICNIC – The Boutique Musical Festival
    Stradbally Hall, Co Laois – 1st, 2nd , 3rd September 2006

    “The Picnic is such a breath of fresh air for concert goers. The huge success of this year’s event (2005) has changed the lie of the land. A brilliant festival is not just about the bands or the location or the chip-free food stalls or the atmosphere or the Body and Soul area or the attention to detail. It’s about quality of the whole event (the boutique festival) .Its about mutual respect”. The Irish Times 2005

    The inimitable Electric Picnic – Ireland’s only boutique musical festival – is back for its third year. Voted by music fans as ‘The Love of 2005’ as voted for by Hot Press readers, the Electric Picnic returns as a three day festival on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd September, with camping all three nights in the idyllic and picturesque setting of Stradbally Hall Estate, Co Laois - less than an hour from Dublin.

    Last year all 25,000 tickets sold out, this year festival organisers have increased the capacity by five thousand but promise to keep the intimate nature of the festival that concert-goers have come to expect.

    In keeping with the eclectic nature and music mix served at the Electric Picnic this year proves no exception with its seven stage line up of:

    Basement Jaxx, Massive Attack, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Groove Armada, Anthony and the Johnsons, DJ Shadow, Damien Rice, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Frames, Devendra Banhart, Super Furry Animals, Belle & Sebastian, Rufus Wainwright (solo), Bloc Party, Alabama 3, The Rapture, Mad Professor, Saul Williams, Tom Vek, Gang of Four, David Kitt, Jim Noir, Rachid Taha, Elbow, Graham Coxon, Deus, The Rags, The Dublin Gospel Choir, topped off with that friend of all things Electric – Gary Numan. And it doesn’t end here, the legendary Blue Nile - this is their only performance in the world this year.

    The Body & Soul Village will be enlarged this year, once again located off the beaten track in it’s leafy natural amphitheatre. The self contained village of Indian tipis, hammocks, small domes and Moroccan style dwellings will again be housing organic cafes & juice bars and a range of therapists who offer alternative therapies & workshops from Reiki, Reflexology and Shiatsu to Indian Head Massages, Yoga & Dance Workshops and Tarot Readings.

    The festival are also delighted to introduce a brand new area - The Big Tree - which is a new nature foundation being set up by Damien Rice and will feature a carbon neutral oasis of music, arts and organic food.

    The Foggy Notions Stage - a new stage being added this year. Foggy Notions are programming a line-up of exciting and exotic sounds from all over the world at this year’s festival. Expect the freshest dance-floor party music, the finest grade heartbreak pop, mind-bending art-rock, ethnic mysticism and the occasional pop icon.

    A large theatre area will encompass Lost Vagueness who return again to present their very unique and flamboyant brand of burlesque theatre and cabaret… Once again we can expect The Ballroom & The Laundrettas Laundromat of Love and they will also have their Changing Rooms at the festival. In this lavishly decorated boudoir of Madame Mishka guests take part in a magical transformation of identities, from everyday to extraordinary. Lost Vagueness stylists will help you feel fabulous with a wide selection of apparel, including feathers-boas and ball-gowns, corsets and petticoats, dinner-jackets and tuxedos, trilbies and top hats. The Pussy Parlure, housed in a beautiful 1920’s style wooden Spiegal Tent, will lure you into a positively Purrrrrfect party experience. With a full bar and entertainment, standby also for the delights (or horrors!) of a ‘Stars in Your Eyes’-style karaoke, pop quiz’s, dance classes, giant floor games and groovy DJ’s playing Soul, Latin, Salsa, R&B, Reggae & World. More Pussy Parlure attractions to be announced. And Cirque Idyllic - a colourful plethora of artists from seasoned international performers to capricious variety artistes, slick aerialists, clever clowns and magicians. Groundbreakers, icebreakers, edge cutters, jaw droppers, side splitters and butt clenchers are all cocooned amid the sublime, feelgood D.J’s who keep the space alive, highly charged and harmonious. Be wowed by the stars of the cabaret renaissance.


    The Electric Picnic also promises the return of its hugely popular International Comedy club Stage hosted once again by Des Bishop. Line-up yet to be announced.
    The Hot Press Chat Room is back again - a unique opportunity to catch Face-to-Face interviews with the stars of the show, conducted by the Hot Press team, including assistant editor Stuart Clark, Peter Murphy and John Walshe.

    The Silent Disco, Cinema and the boutique on-site accommodation of Beach Huts, Podpads & Tipis will also be there.

    And the Electric Picnic’s quirky healthy organic food policy continues together with a wider selection of bars providing a wider variety of drinks plus cocktail bars, including the Bacardi B-Bar and the Southern Comfort Crawdaddy Stage.

    Female urinals are just one of the many new facilities that will be provided at the festival this year, P-Mates will be provided for female concert goers which will enable them to pee while standing upright! No queues, no waiting around for your turn, no fuss!

    Ireland’s only boutique festival, which has grown quickly from an alternative day-out to a 3 day festival is now a major fixture and must for those of eclectic taste.

    I remember the crowd being full of the most idiotic people I have ever seen. It was airlifted from the phoenix park the week before from the Irish world cup team home coming. Inflatable tricolour hammers, shamrocks, gigantic novelty guinness pints and all. Every five seconds "OLE OLE OLE". The average age was probably 15 and after they realised they couldnt mosh to New Order they started booing them.

    I dont recall New Order doing anything to the Irish flag but if they did I dont blame them. I remember I was praying theyd play "Singing for England" as a big **** you to one of the most ignorant crowds Id ever seen.

    ps they played Oxegen last year and it was a far better show and no problems.




  • Graham Coxon.....New Order....i am a happy happy person!




  • Yes, tha was one of the worst crowds I've ever been in. None of them even knew who New Order were!




  • RUFUS!
    DAMIEN!
    BELLE & SEBASTIAN!!



    mmmmmm.




  • *double post*




  • Lost Vagueness - how quick will the police close their bar this year?
    Yes, tha was one of the worst crowds I've ever been in. None of them even knew who New Order were!

    It was one of my first 'I'm getting old' moments.

    On a side note, Joy Division just started playing from 8GB on random.

  • What happened to the bar last year and why?




  • Gang of Four?? Aren't they sort of split up, this very long time?




  • I went in near the end of one of the nights (the first, I think) last year, was told by someone behind the bar that the police shut the bar down because of the lewd acts of the main attractions – which were not stopped.




  • Yes, tha was one of the worst crowds I've ever been in. None of them even knew who New Order were!

    I was up near the front and I noticed the exact same thing. It was a fupping disgrace - absolutely no respect. Then they played Blue Monday and they got more people on their side. But it really ruined the entire gig for me.




  • I was at that gig and don't remember any of this although any time I've seen the Chillis the place has been full of scumbags.




  • Curtains: They've reformed, they've had an album reissued, and were pretty big in certain quarters this past while.

    My thoughts exactly. I remember lots of little ****wits wearing the latest hoodies from Asha booing New Order. Giving them lots of ****. Apart from when they played Love Will Tear Us Apart or Transmission (only when one of the Chilis came out to play with them) and the beginning of Blue Monday (it was too long for their puny attention spans). ****ing saps. Didn't ruin the gig for me, me and my friend just bopped along and enjoyed New Order playing off the crowd (they seemed to play every song a bit longer than normal :D ).

    Is EP on during the first week of school again? Significant reduction in fookmookery last year compared to Oxegen thanks to the kids being stuck in school.




  • 1st-3rd September, that's when they're usually back in, isn't it?

    Any word on the campsite opening on the Thursday?




  • Didn't Bernard Sumner tell all the kids to "Tell your parents you saw us" before walking off stage, at that Chilis gig? :)

    He did.

    And nekkidbibleman, I'm guessing that they'll be opening up on the Thursday night. Can't **** with tradition!
