Of all the little nooks and crannies that have sprung up around the Electric Picnic site over the years, the Trailer Park is undoubtedly one of the most unique.
The park hosts numerous stages, surprises, yummy food and drink places and various types of entertainment - most of them out of tiny, spectacularly-designed caravans and such - and this year is no different.
The line-up for the Trailer Park this year includes the following...
THE MOBILE HOME STAGE with performances by Chic’s Ralph Rolle & CC Brez, big band ska spectacular Interskalactic, disco-crazy Le Freak, the inordinately mad Spud Gun, the epic energy of The Luna Boys, new dance anthem remixers Robotrock, songstress Róisín O, and now annual pilgrimage for the 57-strong Dublin Ukulele Collective, gobby fiddle-wielder Aindrias De Staic & The Lacthikos and many more exhilarating sets from Amber & The Bear, Galway Street Club, Created by Comets, Jaméire, Haiku, Orchid Collective, Papa Rua, Nix Moon, The Pearly Whites, Jethro Pickett, Blackbird & Crow;
Trapeze, aerial acrobatics and zip-wire antics by the show-stopping LOOSYSMOKES;
MY LOVELY RANCH with Cathy Davey and friends (including The Rolling Stoners and probably Neil Hannon);
JIMMIE LEE’S JUKE JOINT with performances by Robin James Hurt & The Band of Moonlight Love, Prison Love, Daoiri Farrell, Grand, Pete Pamf, Blackbird & Crow, Big D & The Goodtime Shuffle, One Horse Pony, Beef Supreme, Shane Hennessy, Larkfield Four, Markus ‘Fred’ Schull and the Clark Family;
New addition THE HOT HOUSE - a restaurant with full service, housed inside a giant poly-tunnel, dressed by Europe’s most incredible salvage brokers The Store Yard, and THE CARAVAN CHALLENGE which will see a variety of those aforementioned caravans offering various delights.
Sounds like fun to us...
