Electric Picnic really exceeds itself on detail. Everything has been carefully thought out to ensure all festival goers have a great time. With campsites named after the greats such as Oscar Wilde, Janis Joplin and Andy Warhol, it's easy to see that this is more than just a music festival.
It's easy to enjoy yourself at Electric Picnic. One of the strengths of Electric Picnic is its commitment to bringing in other areas of interest beyond music to the festival. They have a picnic garden, a circus, a comedy tent, a pamper palace for when you want to get away from the crowds and some paint ball for when you feel like getting rid of some festival stress. As well as all of that, there is an eco-friendly feel good factor in the air.
After a successful Day one at Electric Picnic, the crowd seemed relatively fresh considering their late night of festivities. In the early morning most people where chilling in the campsite or grabbing a bite to eat at the varied range of food stalls, the favourites being The Eco Bus, The Hippie Chippie and The Woodstock Hot Dog.
After a browse around the stalls and a wander around the site, I followed the crowd to the #CasaBacardi tent to watch the opening act of the day, Nightflight DJs.
Nightflight DJs played a mix of disco, deep house, hip hop and party classics and although they played a fairly good set, the crowd just weren't that interested so early in the morning which was more than likely due to the shenanigans of the night before.
Hidden Agenda and A-Skills both pulled in big crowds and weren't left disappointed with amazing sets froom both.
Hercules and The Love Affair returned to Electric Picnic once more this year. They made their way on stage shortly after eight o clock and kicked into a mix of Synth-Pop, Disco and House Music. They tapped into the mood of the crowd and played on their excitable party atmosphere and put on a fun and enjoyable show for everyone.
Bjork, who is now 47, is, as ever, a very powerful vocalist. With a lot of the Electric Picnic goers solely getting tickets to see the iconic Icelander's performance, Bjork had a lot to live up to. She and her 14 piece all female choir put on an overwhelming show and it would seem that, by the reaction of the crowd, that her fans found it hard to find her show to be anything less than fantastic.
After the night wrapped up this happy camper made her way back to the campsite for a much deserved sleep before having to get up and do it all again tomorrow with great acts such as Arctic Monkeys, Jacques Renault and Felix Da Housecat.
