Electric Picnic & Bestival – jumping to conclusions?

0 Comments 27 February 2009

Bestival, the three day festival held in September on the Isle of Wight has announced its line up for this year’s event.

An article on the BBC last year suggested a link up between Bestival and a series of other events such as Electric Picnic. While at this moment it is purely speculative, the net is now buzzing with theories that a similar line-up will be announced for Stradbally.

Last year saw a speculative list circulate, (which I’m willing to admit I was duped by) with less than a quarter of the acts on it actually playing the Picnic, which goes to show the old saying by screenwriter William Goldman: nobody knows anything. The odd act will leak through trusted sources, but until we get that official line-up, we know nothing. The rumour mill is masochistic fun, however and hear say (who are reforming for CastlePalooza, a homeless drunk told me) will fly until then.

Regardless of who is playing, with Oxegen scoring major coups by securing acts like Blur and The Specials for Punchestown, the pressure is now on Electric Picnic to appease those who prefer a trip to Laois over MCD’s mammoth by announcing some acts soon…
