TickeT gig of The week

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The rain (mostly) stayed away, some of the hippest, hottest, strangest and coolest acts and sideshows in the world turned up, as did mul­ti­tudes of happy, bibu­lous campers. The line-up ran the full gamut; from be­he­moths and A-lis­ters such as Iggy Pop, Björk, Beastie Boys and Era­sure to hun­gry whip­per-snap­pers whose time is nigh (take a bow !!! – or Chk Chk Chk, if you like to spell with let­ters – and Ratatat). Food was abun­dant and var­ied, if ex­or­bi­tantly priced, and the Body and Soul area – the hub to the Pic­nic’s wheel – re­ally did won­ders. Too much to re­count, re­ally, in so short a space. You just have to have been there. John Lane. Pho­to­graphs: Kate Ger­aghty

Poly­phonic Spree, MIA and Brit­pop sur­vivor Jarvis Cocker were among the acts that wowed the crowds at last week­end’s Elec­tric Pic­nic
