The Killers among new additions to Electric Picnic bill
As if yesterday's Electric Picnic line-up announcement wasn't enough excitement for Irish festival fans, further additions are trickling out today - and they are some BIG names.
Confirmed today are The Killers, Bat For Lashes and Tindersticks joining the already announced The Cure, Sigur Ros, Elbow, The Roots and more. The addition to the bill of The Killers in an interesting one, seeing as the band's frontman Brandon Flowers has spent time over the last couple of years establishing himself as a solo artist. Nonetheless, the band's huge following will ensure that ticket sales will spike even further and might even entice some regular patrons of the defunct (temporarily, at least) Oxegen festival to switch allegiances.
Tickets for Electric Picnic 2012 are on sale right now and will set you back €230 for a full weekend ticket or €99.50 for a Sunday ticket.
