We have now reached day three of Electric Picnic, which for people who are here is pretty much akin to surviving Nam. We’re a bit haggard, a bit tired but the fields are our home now and all lives beyond them are long forgotten.

No doubt there are many sore heads and indeed legs around today though after the night of whopper music we had yesterday. There was plenty of great bands to choose from but many will probably agree that it was Future Islands that really got the ball rolling. If there is a better frontman in music right now other than Samuel T. Herring we’d like you to show us. His energetic performance inspired the whole crowd to start busting out the moves and sure we were only bleedin’ massive. Here’s the band's famous performance on The Late Show with David Letterman to give you a grasp of what you were missing;

Next up, was George Ezra who you just couldn’t help but sway your hips too. Damn you George for those catchy melodic numbers, we have War on Drugs to be getting to. We managed to get a sizeable chunk of them both in though and the American band also didn’t fail to disappoint with a set that had the crowd crying out for more.

Electric Arena also played host to Chvrches, which is easily going down as one of our highlights of the weekend. It was a powerhouse of a set that hooked us in from start to finish with their hit Mother We Share providing the finishing touches. We missed Mark McCabe's iconic Maniac 2000, but it was worth it.

After the obligatory campsite run to layer up for the evening, we returned to the crowd pleaser that is Blur, although unfortunately this is the one act that for some reason failed to live up to expectation. They happily belted out hit after hit but yet there was something missing – the crowd took a long time to get into it and so did they it seemed. Coffee and TV livened us all up greatly along with Parklife but the best part of the performance was probably the constant Father Ted quote you overheard again and again amongst the crowd putting forth the age old question – who do you prefer Blur or Oasis? We always fell down on the Oasis side of that debate and unfortunately last night did not change that. Sorry Blur.

The night however ended on the high that was Roisin Murphy, and what a lady she is. As Picnicers flowed from the main stage to Body & Soul and Silent Disco. It almost felt like Roisin and her loyal followers had the Picnic to themselves as the Wicklow native commandeered the stage with her frankly sensational wardrobe and that unmistakable voice. We knew she would be a guarantee and she didn’t disappoint.

Still one more day of music, dancing and field life to go, do we have it in us? Probably not, but we are damn well going to give it socks while we can.
