by Staff Reporter

Electric Picnic 2018 revealed the first round of performers to play at the Stradbally festival, with many more to come.

Headliners this year are Kendrick Lamar, Massive Attack and N.E.R.D, with other fan favourites such as Dua Lipa, St. Vincent, Cvrches playing the three day event, which takes place from August 31st to September 2nd in Stradbally, Co Laois.

This year if you are one of the 5,000 early entry campers arriving on Thursday night, be prepared for lots of laughs in the tranquil wonderland haven of Hazelwood. Gather round the campfire as we bring you a very special comedy night, with an all – female line-up curated by Emily O’Callaghan. It’s all part of Electric Picnic’s mission to bring more gender balance to the festival as part of their Rebalance programme launched by Festival Director Melvin Benn in August last year.
