Blondie, Kelis and Neneh join Pic­nic

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

It’s been a big week for Elec­tric Pic­nic with the an­nounce­ment that the dis­pute be­tween Pod Mu­sic and Fes­ti­val Repub­lic Dublin – both co-share­hold­ers in the fes­ti­val – has been re­solved, with the for­mer di­vest­ing its stake to the lat­ter.

A state­ment re­leased by the fes­ti­val’s PR com­pany read: “Fes­ti­val Repub­lic Dublin would like to thank John Reynolds, di­rec­tor of Pod Mu­sic, for his con­tribu- tion to the suc­cess­ful de­vel­op­ment of Elec­tric Pic­nic and wish him well for the fu­ture.”

The res­o­lu­tion means the three-day fes­ti­val, now in its 11th year, can pro­ceed with a clean le­gal slate and a fur­ther batch of acts has been added to en­hance the line-up.

Blondie, Mog­wai, Kelis, for­mer LCD Soundsys­tem man James Mur­phy, Neneh Cherry, The Hor­rors, Duke Du­mont, Twin Shadow and Sinéad O’Con­nor are among them, as are Ham Sand­wich, Clean Ban­dit, Drenge, Glass An­i­mals, Wolf Alice, Un­known Mor­tal Orches­tra, The District and more. They join the pre­vi­ously an­nounced Por­tishead, Outkast, Beck, Pet Shop Boys, St Vin­cent and more at Strad­bally from Au­gust 29th to 31st. elec­tricpic­
