Return to a psychedelic space bursting with theatrical magic where you can party like its 2099. This year, picnickers can dance among extra-terrestrial life under the gleaming lights of Electric Picnic’s very own Stargate – an otherworldy portal from outside realms waiting to transport the enlightened traveller across space and time. Who knows from where, or from what time, our fellow revellers will be!
Other installations nestled amongst the trees are Stargate a 13ft diameter portal positioned above the entrance to Transmission through which extra-terrestrial beings can access earth. And Moon a 5ft fiberglass moon and satellite suspended high in the canopy of the woods. This year a new UFO has landed on top of the Mothership, what new beings will arrive with it – join us in the woods to find out.
