Two brilliant Irish acts have been added to the Electric Picnic line-up


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!
