This day week music lovers will be making their way to Stradbally for the sold-out Electric Picnic. 

And the already stellar line-up just got even better with the addition of two well known Irish bands. The Coronas and Keywest have both been added to the list for Ireland's biggest music and arts festival which takes place from September 4th-6th. 

Keywest teased the news this morning on Twitter before confirming it in a retweet, while shortly after The Coronas also shared the news on social media.

Already announced are The Boomtown Rats and iconic Irish DJ Mark McCabe, best known for his song Maniac 2000.

Headline gigs for the festival include Sam Smith, Blur, Florence + The Machine and Tame Impala. 

For those of you heading to the festival, there's even more good news, with some sunny weather on its way to Ireland. Our mini Indian summer is expected to last until the festival is over… hurrah!



The Coronas must be absolutely thrilled, as they have signed a major record deal in London with Island Records. However, the lads aren’t getting ahead of themselves just yet:

“It’s a good moment for us. It doesn’t guarantee anything major will happen. But it is the reason we came over here.

“We wanted to try and take things to the next level. And fingers crossed, with the next album coming out before the end of the year we can do that.

“They have Mumford and Sons, Hozier, Florence and the Machine, U2, as well. They are a really great label. We’ve met them a few times and they really seem to be into the stuff.

“And they’re signing us off the back of the new album, which is good as well. They’re not looking to release the back catalogue, they’re treating us like a new band which is what we wanted. So fingers crossed.”

Well done guys!
