    Guess some of the lineup above was not in keeping with the press release:

    THE ELECTRIC PICNIC – The Boutique Musical Festival
    Stradbally Hall, Co Laois – Friday August 31/September1/September 2 2007

    The Electric Picnic Ireland's only Boutique Music Festival returns on 31st, August 1st and 2nd September 2007. Capacity remains at 32,500, ensuring that The Picnic's intimacy remains intact, but the festival will have en enlarged camping area to allow for more room and comfort for festival goers.

    It's a tribute to the festival that so many repeat visitors get their tickets without even asking who is on the bill. Now in its fourth year, The Picnic has grown from being a music festival to encompassing a lot more from music to art to poetry reading. The trust has been built up and each and every year there's something better about it. A listening festival, regulars return from each year's bash with feedback/suggestions/advice as to how to enhance the experience.

    Musically, The Picnic handpicks only those acts who know how to merge themselves with the Stradbally experience. And forget what it says on your birth certificate, there's always something on somewhere for everyone in the audience.

    This year's highlights include The Beastie Boys doing their first Irish show in over a decade; the recently reformed Iggy And The Stooges - their only UK/Ireland performance this year; a rare live outing by the wonderful Bjork; ex-Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker; a hark back to 1980s punk-pop with The Jesus And Mary Chain; cutting edge dance-rock from LCD Soundsystem - who have just released one of the albums of the year; the newly resurgent Primal Scream; the first ever Irish show by the Damon Albarn-led The Good, The Bad and The Queen; Modest Mouse, the dramatic Polyphonic Spree and the eminently adaptable Craig Armstrong; Soul II Soul - who are arriving over with a 12 piece band and string section in tow! Paul Hartnoll’s The Ideal Condition make a debut performance in Ireland and the return of the Dublin Gospel Choir who will be there to redeem your souls on Sunday morning.

    Also performing are: Sonic Youth, Aim, The Go Team!, Ratatat, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Ladytron, Jamie Lidell, Damien Dempsey, Mr Scruff, The Magic Numbers, The Undertones, Fujiya & Miyagi, Horace Andy, Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, Marlena Shaw, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk), A Trak, Josh Wink, Electrelane, Bonde do Role, Deerfhoof, Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid, Derek May, Hextatic, Derick Carter, The Glimmers, The Elecktrons, DJ Marky – plus many more yet to be announced.

    Away from the music there's the usual feast of delights. The Body and Soul Village is back, twice as big, you'll find them down among the trees where they'll have organic food and drink, a massive range of holistic treatments, late night entertainment and plenty of trippy, pretty things to dazzle & enchant you.

    An added dimension to the Body and Soul area this year will be the Village Green which will contain an Arts and Crafts area where some of Ireland’s best craftworkers will weave their talents to create a collective art piece especially for this year’s festival. A dynamic, playful and ridiculously colourful kids field will house fun games, creative workshops, movies, arts and crafts, puppet making and circus skills. And not to forget the grown ups there will be tug of war, twister, giant skittles and rounders to tickle your fancy.
    What would the Village Green be without the Village Hall? Get ready for a right rustic knees-up, with line dancing, daily ceili, gypsy bands, trad sessions, apple bobbing, salsa classes, dancing competitions and a bit of mayhem for all the family, friends and freaks to enjoy. There’ll also be a farmers market selling fresh produce from the local Laois farmer each morning.
    Lost Vagueness are proud to attend The Electric Picnic for a third fabulous year. This time round they will be bringing you the infamous Chapel of Love and Loathing. The original and best festival chapel has amazed and astounded countless visitors at Glastonbury with its heady combination of daytime wedding ceremonies and the darkest night time cabaret. In addition this year they are bringing over their Casino. Returning will be the Ballroom, The Changing Room and the Laundrettas Laundromat Of Love providing a small army of stylists to pimp your look.

    New this year is the world renowned Fossets Circus, with acrobats, clowns and jugglers.

    Back by popular demand is the Leviathan Think Tank - the political debate tent hosted again this year by Economist, broadcaster and writer David McWilliams. Enlarged this year to 2 tents there will be a series of intelligent and entertaining discussions as the centrepiece to a vibrant weekend of spoken word events including poetry, theatre, speakers' corner, story-telling, musical satire, comedy films and much more.

    The International Comedy Club also makes its return hosted as usual by Des Bishop. Comedy line-up to be announced nearer the time but you can expect the best Ireland has to give.

    The ever popular Southern Comfort Crawdaddy Tent, Bacardi B Bar and Foggy Notions Stage all make a welcome return.

    In addition will be a late night stage which promises impromptu performances from various acts throughout the weekend.

    In the Bodytonic Arena, they'll be serving up the finest underground funk-dance (and plenty more besides).

    With the finest accommodation facilities, newly positioned on site, this year you will really have to book early for the luxurious Boutique Campsite which has a 24 hour on-site reception and an extra special "Apres Fest" chill-out zone. There are Beach Huts, Bohemian Bivouacs, the very popular Podpads, Tipis and the double decker dormitories that are the Bus Beds.

    Electric Picnic intends to make a greater strides this year towards becoming as environmentally friendly as possible. Discussions with Cultivate Ireland & Global cool are on-going to investigate how we can reduce our use of non renewable energy & offset those we do. The festival will also have large on site recycling stations this year instead of recycling off-site as per previous years, and will be introducing a pro-active 'Leave No Trace' campaign. Enforcing a biodegradeable packaging policy with the traders and focusing on a more environmental traffic management plan – including the launching of a new website to facilitate life-sharing - these are just a few of the areas which we hope we will make a difference. Watch www.electricpicnic.ie for developments over the summer and to find out how you can make a difference.

    Bjork, LCD Soundsystem, Deerhoof, Fujiya and Miyagi, Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Ladytron, CYHSY, Iggy and the Stooges, !!!, Ratatat, Modest Mouse and Primal Scream. Get in.

    Aye, a guy on another board that leaked most of the lineup before the press release has confirmed they'll be doing two sets, one on the main stage and one on the electric arena.

    Seen those posts in relation to Erasure, not my bag at all Im afraid, but Im sure it will please alot of people. Chemical Brothers are pretty much a definite, Smashing Pumpkins on the other hand are not, it appears they will be playing MCD's answer to EP - Latitude.

    A similar vibe to that of Pet Shop Boys I presume, they were first class at EP last year. Talk of Frank Black appearing (mixture of his solo stuff and Pixies songs) alongside Joey Santiago. That would be one of my picks if it comes to fruition.
  45. avatar ShowYourBones
    More acts have been confirmed for Connect (Scottish Festival, same weekend as EP), heres hoping for a few of these:

    SONS & DAUGHTERS / RILO KILEY / VASHTI BUNYAN / PATRICK WOLF / THE BLACK DOG / ALEX SMOKE / THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS / 1990s

    Additions have been confirmed today (taken from Hotpress):

    09 Aug 2007

    Simple Kid is among the slew of new acts confirmed to play this year's Electric Picnic.

    While big names like Modest Mouse and Fionn Regan have already been confirmed for the Southern Comfort Crawdaddy Stage, new additions include Simple Kid, Duke Special, Rilo Kiley and Patrick Wolf.

    Tennessee electropop-rockers How I Became The Bomb will also explode (boom boom) onstage, along with the sinister strummers Two Gallants. 'Cultural terrorists' Warlords of Pez also promise much musical mayhem, as do Aussie oddballs Architecture in Helsinki.


    The Nokia Trends Lab Stage boasts its fair share of musical wonder too, with world music (DHOL Foundation), electronica (Kieran Hebden and S Reid, The Field, Oppenheimer), post-rock (65 Seconds of Static), psychedelia (The Aliens, The Little Ones), superior singer-songwriters (My Brightest Diamond) and, er, the Tropicana ad (Nouvelle Vague) all well-represented.


    The full line-up for each of the stages therefore stands as:

    Damn a few pretty bad clashes for myself oops be missingparts of sets everywhere...

    to those who have been before, Is it usually slow getting from stage to stage?
  70. avatar ShowYourBones
    In my experience, no it doesnt take too long, depends on traffic though. The Main Stage, Electric Arena and Crawdaddy Stage are within a stones throw from each other.
  71. avatar Darragh-NDL
    Nice...thanks man! should be cool anyway, I'll not be running about worrying. although I'd love to be At Bodytonic for Mr Scruff's full 2 1/2hour set..

    Very similar to what I had in mind, although these things never go to plan. But I am going to make sure that I get in early enough each day rather than wasting a large amount of time in the campsite with friends debating on what to head and see.

    I'm working from the latest timetable posted on boards which says they are playing twice. Could still be wrong though. Please, call me zwaddap.
  78. avatar wunderzwiebel
    Yup, that timetable ain't finalised yet.
    They have us (halves) down for later on sunday, but we're actually playing at 12:30 on the sunday on the nokia trends lab stage.+

    www.dailymotion.com/video/x2keom_halves-live-in-crawdaddy-dublin

    should give you a live vid of one of our songs - In the sorrow, in the fire.

    Join us on Sun 12:30 and melt your hangover away.......

    Finalised timetable will be up at http://forum.electricpicnic.ie/viewtopic.php?t=26359
  79. avatar ShowYourBones
    Unfortunately I cant access the EP website (work have it blocked together with about 80% of websites I visit, the swines), so if any nice soul could post the timetable when its up, Id be eternally grateful. I already have the unofficial one posted earlier but there are still a few gaps. You are really a lovely bunch.
  80. avatar ShowYourBones
    There is rumours that the Beastie Boys have cancelled their appearance at EP, please god no. It seems (if the rumours at to be believed) that this is causing the delay in releasing the official timetable.

    Any word of the other two days, thanks for that. Much appreciated my good man.
  86. avatar Meerium
    not so far - ep forum people are most unhappy!

    does anyone know whether your bag gets searched going from the campsite into the festival arena and any water bottles un-capped/boozes confiscated?
  87. avatar ShowYourBones
    They do get searched however they are generally a friendly bunch. No drink confiscated unless its in a glass bottle.
  88. avatar Zwaddap_deep_doo
    That's true for the campsite but I thought you have to sneak booze into the main arena. That's how I remember it last year.
  89. avatar Meerium

    aye, this was what i was wondering about. abiding memories of having to drink vodka at oxegen, despite not particularly liking the stuff, because it was clear (passable as water when getting searched) and easier to mix than gin (my preferred tipple. but not even i have been desperate enough for gin that i've attempted gin with a coke mixer....)
  90. avatar Zwaddap_deep_doo
    Havana club Rum is the way forward. Also box of red wine removed from the box so it's a bladder of wine. Carried one of these around the whole festival last year with no bother.
  91. avatar Zwaddap_deep_doo
    Vodka is vile.
  92. avatar ShowYourBones
    Sorry I re-read the post again. Under 'P' at work here so my posts are all over the shop. You do get searched heading into the arena, just hide it, common sense prevails here.
  93. avatar Meerium
    the bladder of wine appeals most, for definite! the lovely cheap tesco french table wine that's £9 for the box. roll on the most evil hangover i have ever known........
  94. avatar Zwaddap_deep_doo
    It makes sense any way you look at it. Spend a few more quid and get something semi decent though since it's still cheap for the equivalent of four bottles of wine.
  95. avatar Meerium
    genuinely, that £9 box is really very drinkable. in fact, it's nicer than some more expensive reds i've had (bought one recently that was half price from £12, and it was deeply unpleasant). it's a staple of weekend trips to donegal. the hangover's generally when i mix it with beer or similar - hitting my thirties has done bad things for my hangover susceptibility!

    still no word on the sat/sun running orders, btw.

    That’s cool if it’s served you well before. You’re quite right about more expensive does not equal better. I’ve never had much luck with French wines though so mostly stick to Australian or Chilean. Would love a Penfolds box but I’ve never seen one. Cheers for the update. Whereabouts do you visit in Donegal? That’s where I’m from.
  98. avatar Meerium
    i hear ya on the penfolds box. that would be.....mmmmmmm!

    other half's folks have friends with a cottage between portsalon and fanad head and it's completely fab. where are you from?

    rigsy, i dunno if that's been on here before, but it looks like it's changed a bit since it came out - simple kid isn't playing on the friday f'rexample, and oppenheimer are....

    it's prolly fairly close, mind you :)

  105. avatar Meerium
    no, he's sensibly decided to stay home (i presume you did hear about/see alan and deirdre's nuts in may holiday photos? he was a little too interested in the idea for my liking). though when i told him the chemical bros were playing he looked decidedly miffed, and i've just discovered his current favourite the field are playing on the saturday, so he may cry later tonight......

    i'm somewhat hoarse, and seeing my way through work on a combination of caffeine and sugar. nice. had an absolute blast, the bladder of wine smuggling was a success, and bjork, jarvis cocker, the fall and sonic youth were probably my highlights. whoop!
  109. avatar Zwaddap_deep_doo
    Excellent weekend. Thought the eco cup system worked great. Didn’t have a single bad experience with security, staff or anyone. All very pleasant.

    [b:2bdd6e6d11]Highlights:[/b:2bdd6e6d11]

    Final Fantasy – As others have said, a very special performance.

    Paul Hartnol – Beautiful and lush. Very surprising.

    Bjork – Wonderfully theatric, declare independence for the encore slayed.

    LCD Soundsystem – ‘Losing my edge’ would have made it perfect indeed.

    The Jimmy Cake – So great to see them back. Some hairs on the back of the neck moments.

    !!! – Had me dancing my ass off.

    Easy Star All stars – Played the best bits of Dub side of the moon and Radiodread. Great atmosphere.

    Patrick Wolf – Class songs, class performance.

    DHOL Foundation – Great surprise as this was a stab in the dark choice. Loved the bangra singer guy.

    Deerhoof – Superb, mental drumming.

    Rilo Kiley – Blown away, quite like their albums but live they’re a lot more powerful. Excellent vocals. Really glad I caught them.

    Iggy & The Stooges: Pretty much stole the show altogether.

    Lucent Dossier in the body and soul area.

    Beside the next stage that psychedelic prism and mirrors show. Mindblowing.

    Others that I enjoyed: Luisito Quintero, The Aliens, Sonic Youth, UNKLE, My Brightest Diamond, Jarvis Cocker, Hot Chip, Manic Street Preachers.

    [b:2bdd6e6d11]Lowlights –[/b:2bdd6e6d11] Missing modest mouse and Erasure due to packed out tents. Would have been more gutted if I hadn’t seen modest mouse at Primavera but was still looking forward to them.
  110. avatar Niall Harden
    aye modest mouse's insane fanbase always amazes me. they were very good - but as with nearly every band, hard to enjoy unless you were pretty close to the front.
    i enjoyed the weekend, but nearly every artist i'd been looking forward to - bjork, beastie boys, jesus and mary chain, sonic youth and many others - were hampered by being very hard to see / hear. the sound for the main stage was wrong more often than it was right (lcd soundsystem being a pleasing exception).
    highlights - !!! (didn't much care for the second album til i saw it live) and M.I.A., but i think i wouldn't have been fussed on either if i hadn't got a great spot in the front row. meh.
    the eco cups ruled because you could lift one off the ground and effectively get a pint for two euro :D
  111. avatar gregz
    Yip, bang on festival. But i really feel they need to increase the volume for next year esp on the main stage, anywhere passed the sound desk when there was a crowd and its was a distant rumble with treble only coming through when the wind was blowing from behind the stage.
    Thought all the performances were great............ high light was prob Marlena Shaw, though it is a hard call
  112. avatar Meerium
    aw man, yes, marlena shaw was fabulous. i was right down at the front, dancing away on my own and loving it. you need to be a grand dame of soul to say 'shut uhhhhhhp' to the crowd the way she did (i know, because i kept trying all weekend. i may have been feeling the soul, but i'm a long way from diva status!). i have what looks like being a very wobbly camera phone shot of her.
  113. avatar rentaghost
    Feel free to attempt to tell me to shut uuuuup on Thursday night :)
  114. avatar chrisjedijane
    I had a great time - Bjork, Sonic Youth, The Stooges, Final Fantasy and Bonde Do Role being my highlights. I thought Sonic youth should have been much louder though...

    I almost got up on stage for the Stooges, but there was a guy blocking the stairs to the stage by that point so we just danced around at the foot of the stage while loads of Gardai ran around in a confused manner.

    [quote:5f033a0468="Niall Harden"]highlights - !!! (didn't much care for the second album til i saw it live)[/quote:5f033a0468]

    Yeah, I saw you dancing your ass off as the lead singer ran along the front. I had a great time at it too :)

    Think my highlights were Jarvis and Polyphonic Spree. I knew I'd enjoy them, but was surprised by how much I did. Thought Sonic Youth, Manics, Beastie Boys were great. Glad the Manics stayed fairly well clear of anything after 1996 :)

    Bjork was a bit of a disappointment, but that might have been because I was really far back and she looked like a small puppet. Modest Mouse didn't really inspire me, I think they might have been my disappointment of the weekend. Well, that and only catching the last two songs of Paul Hartnoll, and not actually knowing what it was until they played Belfast.

    Final Fantasy was great too.

    The Sonic Youth sound guy was insanely precise...I heard him asking for "1, maybe 1.2 db more on the left monitor with a cut in the EQ at around 140hz." Guess when you've been doing it as long as they have you know exactly what you want.

    Pity I had to leave on the Sunday night after Sonic Youth, kinda wish I'd seen Iggy now.
  118. avatar greensleevesisgod
    Manics and beastie boys were great, but I spent most of my time in the body and soul area (the jahm stage if anyone remembers) What a great week.

    Anyone catch Tommy Tiernan? Hilarious stuff.

    Salon du chat anyone?
  119. avatar exmagician
    Jarvis stole the picnic
  120. avatar Jamesy Yakuza
    Another great EP

    Highlights:

    Modest Mouse, "float on" and awesome feel good moment.

    Beasties, both sets, nice mix of hits and obscure stuff "Egg Raid On Mojo" "Rickys Theme" "Mark On The Bus" etc

    Sonic Youth, similar set to Primavera / ATP but just nice watching them up the front with plenty of room and the sun shining...

    The Stooges, always, third time i've seem them and the first where the stage invasion seemed to be getting genuinely out of control...

    Enjoyed the manics, delorentos, mix master mike, and surprisingly jarvis cocker as I'm not that big a fan.

    Liked what I saw of Bonde De Role, Final Fantasy and the Go! team as well...

    Would have liked to have seen some JAMC, Rilo Kiley and Spiritualized too but what can you do...

    good times!
  121. avatar thesacredhearts
    Fantastic, but very tiring weekend was had. Still my favourite festival.

    Won't go into a full synopsis but highlights were the mighty LCD and performance of the weekend is split between Rilo Kiley and the bit of Unkle i saw. Such a clash. (although is is not reflective of the whole weekend due to saturday missing)

    Down points though, some of the sound was dreadful. I mean really just horrible. Main stage and foggy notions in particular. Fuyjia & Miyagi was nothing but muddy bass sound. Nokia trends lab and Crawdaddy seemed to have it spot on though.

    And i think my love affair with Primal Scream is over. They are now an aging pub rock band. What happened to the band that wrote Xtrmntr, Screamadelica and Vanishing point? So disappointed.
  122. avatar the er
    great weekend. agreed that the sound was absolutely horrible for the most part.

    i'd still go back again and relive it all again tomorrow!!
  123. avatar chrisjedijane
    I walked out of Camera Obscura in the Foggy Notions tent as I just couldn't listen to any more monitor feedback.


    and I really like camera obscura.
  124. avatar Crackity_jones
    Fujiya sounded great from where I was down the front. Electrelane, M.I.A. and !!!, on the other hand, all sounded poor despite the artists' best efforts. And while the main stage sound was good, it wasn't loud enough. Hope they get this sorted next year.

    Best sets -

    Sonic Youth
    Fujiya & Miyagi
    LCD Soundsystem
    !!!
    Bat For Lashes
