Take a wrong turn down a forest path and you may find yourself at a place called ArtLot. When you arrive, leave your worries for a while, they will be there when you get back, and your memories aren’t invited! Welcome to the Electric Picnic’s alternative arts and music stage.

Once upon a time on a little corner of Dublin city, ArtLot, a derelict site, held its own as an open-air public exhibition space inspiring and amusing passers-by with its monthly programme of visual art and performance. When the hotel developers moved in, ArtLot was rescued by Electric Picnic and the artists were given a permanent home deep in the woods of Stradbally Hall.

ArtLot is home to Granny’s House, the immersive installation that will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to your grandmother’s gaff from the 1980s. Described by the Irish Times as “a sanctuary for those looking to escape the madness”, the interactive installation is decorated head to toe in retro kitsch.

The Artlot is curated by John Kenny and Alan Mulhall of Dublin based arts collective The Glow Depot. Proudly supported by The Electric Picnic.
