There are but nine days left for you to get your paws on early bird tickets for Electric Picnic and to whet your appetite, Electric Picnic have unveiled a bangin' line-up for the reggae and dancehall hub of the festival - Trenchtown.
Now in its 6th year, the Jamaican Village in the woods of Stradbally heralds another exciting music bill of Irish and International artists hot on the Reggae, Ska, Dub and Dancehall music scene. Names such as Dublin Afrobeat Ensemble, Solo Banton, Jah Lex, The Bionic Rats and DJ Kali are all involved along with heaps more (scroll down for the full list).
Midnight on the 4th of July is the deadline to avail of weekend tickets for €194.50 for this year's Electric Picnic. Sunday tickets, as we told you last week, are now completely out of stock but weekend tickets for just over 194 quid does represent quite a significant saving from some Electric Picnics past.
Elsewhere in the spirited Jamaican village, Cork based Revelation Sound System are in residence and powering the ‘Roots Inna Da Woods’ arena while the brand new ‘Irieland Acoustic Stage’ will honour the traditional music roots from Ireland & Jamaica.
We certainly hope you'll join us there.
