This year's Electric Picnic line-up just received a massive shot in the arm after a rake of new additions were just confirmed to appear at the Stradbally festival at the end of August.
Blondie will celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band with their first ever appearance at Electric Picnic, where they'll unleash their string of hits on the Stradbally crowd. Joining her atop the new list of names will be the always interesting Sinead O'Connor, Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, the infectious live sounds of Kelis and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy will make his second solo appearance at the Picnic, after previously performing to a jam-packed tent in 2012.
The full list of new names is as follows:
James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem fame)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Vancouver Sleep Clinic
The above names join the previously announced Outkast, Portishead, Beck, Foals, Pet Shop Boys, Chic feat. Nile Rodgers, St. Vincent, London Grammar and Lily Allen (among others) at the festival which will take place across the weekend of 29th to 31st August.
