10 brand new acts announced for the Picnic!

Bambie Thug – daydreamers – Cardinals – Zimmer90

With just six weeks to go until we welcome 75,000 music fans to Stradbally Estate, here are 10 brand new additions who will perform over the three-day weekend.

Unreckonable force CMAT will make a welcome return to the festival after wowing crowds in 2022. Fresh from winning the Choice Music Prize earlier this year, first time Picnickers Lankum will also perform at the sold-out event, while Ivor Novello winner Villagers brings his uniquely nuanced and melodic fusion of folk, pop and rock to Stradbally.

The weekend of 16th -18th of August will see Electric Picnic celebrating its 20th anniversary and with The Stranglers currently on their 50th anniversary tour we can think of no better place to celebrate! Eurovision fans rejoice as two-time winner Loreen, and Ireland’s own Bambie Thug will make their Picnic debuts over the weekend, make sure to catch a special podcast from Blindboy, and music from daydreamers, Cardinals and Zimmer90.
