Electric Picnic has been long sold out, but more new acts have been added to the fray at Stradbally, nevertheless.

They include a glut of Irish acts including Villagers, CMAT, Lankum and Blindboy.

Former Swedish Eurovision winner Loreen will also be playing across the weekend, as will this year's Irish Eurovision entrant, Bambie Thug.

The Stranglers, daydreamers , Cardinals and Zimmer9 complete the latest batch of new additions.

CMAT shared her delight at playing this year's EP with a post reminiscing about her own memories of attending the festival at 15, saying "Electric Picnic, you mean so much to me" and calling it "the best festival in the world."

Electric Picnic takes place in Stradbally, Co. Laois from August 16th - 18th.
