Electric Picnic Adds Blondie, Sinead Connor, James Murphy & 18 More Acts
Electric Picnic have announced a further 21 names to this summers line up. The list includes Irish female icon and controversial singer-songwriter Sinead O Connor, LCD Soundsystem retiree James Murphy and legendary 80's rockers Blondie among plenty of others.
Joining them with be lower key highlights such as Scottish post rock act Mogwai, indie/post punk favourites The Horrors, and R&B idol Kelis.
For me, much like the first announcement, this is a solid line up of additions but somewhat lacking in the extraordinary quality of the past 5 or so years.
In any case, the full list of additions is as follows:
James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem fame)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Vancouver Sleep Clinic
My plan over the next couple of months is to prepare for EP by selecting my favourite artists from the line up and writing up profiles for each, including best tracks, albums and such so stick with HMM for Electric Picnic previews which will be up and running before the end of the month.
