The line-up for the Trenchtown stage at this year's Electric Picnic has just been announced.
The stage - also known as 'The Roots Inna Da Woods Arena' - gathers up the best reggae, dancehall, ska, Afrobeat and hip-hop acts in the land, transports them to the woods of Stradbally each year, and gives festival-goers a vibrant alternative to what's going on in the main arena.
As always, there's a strong Irish contingent on the programme this year, with more to be announced in the coming weeks and months.

Martin Hickey of Trenchtown said: "“It’s a real pleasure for us to curate an all Irish entertainment line-up this year, with the exception of a couple of special guests, our performers all call Ireland home. We have an abundance of creative talent on this island from all around the globe and in Ireland 2016 it’s of great importance to us to embrace and celebrate that”.
