We are well into festival season, which has been speculator thanks to some decent Irish sun.

As Electric Picnic draws closer, we cannot contain our excitement.

But before you get the kicks out, glitter on and rock the double buns, you have to plan what and who you're gonna see at the epic festival.

Lucky for you, we and Electric Ireland have one to pencil into the weekend-long fun.

Electric Ireland clearly got the memo about how much we adore bobbin' to our fav ninety tracks.

They've put together a Throwback Stage line-up and announced that B*witched are to headline. (FAN-GIRL SCREAMING)

We are clearly thrilled with seeing our gals, Edele and Keavy Lynch, Lindsay Armaou, and Sinéad O'Carroll belt out ‘C’est La Vie’. 

We can't forget "Rollercoaster", "To You I Belong" and "Blame It on the Weatherman" which all smashed their way to number one in the English and Irish charts, upon their release.

We highly recommend that you splash that colour and rock the 90s denim ​​​​​​as you dance along to the nostalgia.

Past throwback line-ups brought by Electric Ireland has seen some of our golden oldies like 5ive, S Club Party, Ace of Base, Bonnie Tyler, 2 Unlimited, The Vengaboys and Bananarama. 

If you don't know any of these acts, you're dead to us – joking – but check them out on Youtube as they hold a special place in our heart.

Additionally, for extra brownie points go check out the acts in this year's line-up during the festival.

The full-line up for the throwback fun is due to be released shortly.

Electric picnic will be held on August 31 to September 2nd.

For anyone who managed to secure tickets, I hope you feel the jealousy seeping through the screen.

Hope isn't entirely lost, as some lucky duck will win a pair of weekend tickets by shareing a screenshot of ‘C’est La Vie’ streaming on Spotify using #ThrowbackStage and tag @ElectricIreland on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

May the odds forever be in your favour.


If you’re a veritable whizz on anything and everything 90s-related, and are only dying to get your hands on Electric Picnic tickets, you need to bring you’re A-game tonight, ladies.

In order to reward those with a real grá for the 90s, Electric Ireland are running a Facebook Live #ThrowbackShow tonight, where tickets to Electric Picnic will be up for grabs!

Hosted by national treasures, Dustin the Turkey and Don Conroy, the ‘Electric Ireland Throwback Show’ will air on Facebook tonight at 8pm.

If you know your 90s nostalgia trivia inside out, then there’s a pretty high chance you’ll be living it up at Electric Picnic this weekend!

So, dust off that rucksack and take your chances against the nation’s 90s-obsessives.

We know what we’ll be doing tonight.


Electric Picnic is just around the corner, but if you haven't managed to secure a ticket yet, never fear. 

There is even more reason to head down to Stradbally this September if you are a fan of 90s tunes.

Electric Ireland, the official energy partner of Electric Picnic, has announced that it will be bringing 90s nostalgia to the masses in the form of our favourite cheesy pop tunes at the Throwback Stage.

S Club Party

If the thought of bopping to 5ive and S Club Party gets you going, then head to the Throwback Stage where both acts are headlining.  

If icons Don Conroy and Dustin the Turkey bring back major memories, then prepare for a trip down memory lane.

Free tickets to the three-day festival could also be on the horizon with the help of the artist and the UNICEF ambassador(yes really).

The pair are to star on a Facebook Live game show called the ‘Electric Ireland Throwback Show’ which will air on August 23 at 8pm on the Electric Ireland Facebook page.

The show will feature a number of 90s nostalgia related games with Electric Ireland inviting people to tune in to win tickets. 

So dust off your old bucket hats and rewind your Weezer tapes, because a few tickets to EP could be on the line.



Most of us have grown up using computers, and so are wise to the many ways in which email scammers can work.

There's the Nigerian prince who wants to use your account to transfer €2,000,000 (seems legit), or even the email from your 'bank' that asks you to re-enter all your card details (sure thing, AIB).

But one email scam doing the rounds today almost had us convinced – and a few others too, by the looks of it.

A number of Twitter users have posted images of an email purporting to be from Irish electricity supplier Electric Ireland, letting the user know a refund is waiting for them.

Unlike many other common phishing emails, this one contains no typos and looks strikingly similar to standard Electric Ireland billing emails. 

Plus, the refund amount (€98.04) is low enough not to arouse suspicion.

A closer look at the email though, reveals that the sender is most definitely NOT Electric Ireland, but instead the email domain "gourmetlearning.com." 

Electric Ireland say they have reported the scam, which reportedly asks users for their bank details and a passport copy, to the Gardaí.


Removed from the joys of Electric Picnic for another year, tired and weary souls are now creeping back to a festival-free reality.

The memories will, of course, live on – and no more so than the 90s Power Party area, which over three days thrilled and delighted thousands of fans of the bygone decade.

Hosted by Electric Ireland, revellers were brought back in time – to a time that may not have boasted Wi-Fi, but instead could champion treasures such as Friends; Dawson’s Creek; Buffy; Clueless, and The Matrix.

It was the era that gave rise to Saved ByThe Bell; to Tupac Shakur, and Michael Jordan – not to mention Power Rangers, and Alanis Morissette’s not-so ironic Ironic.  

Nope, it’s hardly surprising that the 90s Power Party stage was pretty much the talk of EP.

With the stage kicking off with 2 Unlimited on Friday, Mark McCabe conquered Stradbally with his throw-back rendition of Maniac on Saturday night. Then the Vengaboys wrapped it all up yesterday.

If you missed it, and sadly not everyone could bear witness to such iconic Nineties-tinged performances, Electric Ireland has kindly stuck the best bits in a 2-minute-long video.

Suffice to say we’ll be watching this on loop for some time…




Electric Ireland have done a survey to find out the habits of Irish people when it comes to breaking up with each other, as part of their ‘Breaking Up With Bills’ campaign.

The results we’re pretty interesting – apparently 21% of us have broken up with someone over a text message or email. And men are twice as likely as women to misbehave, in order for their other half to do the dirty work.

Not cool guys, seriously.

If you made it through April with your relationship intact, you should be ok, as it’s the most popular month for breaking up. Whereas in October we must like cuddling up in front of the fire as the evenings get darker, as it’s the least popular month for break ups.

Social media is a tricky one for us to deal with post-break-up as well, one in three of us have de-friended an ex on Facebook, and more than half update their new relationship status immediately.

However, we’re an optimistic bunch at the end of the day, with 70% of people believing that it IS possible to be friends with an ex. Men in particular think this is very possible (though they weren’t the ones with their other halves misbehaving on purpose now were they?!)
