Thanks to the Three City Stages, eight aspiring Irish musicians will take to the stage at this year’s Electric Picnic Festival for a special collaborative performance.
This special ensemble of musicians was selected by Irish music industry professionals, who selected these musicians based on their exploits at a city stage, as well as researching them on their own progress.
Making its debut at Stradbally this year, The Three City Stages has been touring Ireland, providing musicians with career breaking opportunities nationwide.
This special performance coming to Electric Picnic will comprise of Korey Power, Leah Moran, Arthur Valentine, Kestine, Lillian Pinheiro, Salamay, 2Time Charlie, and Bukky, taking place today.
City Stages is committed to the All For Music initiative, which supports new and exciting musical talent, by giving them opportunities to perform live at big arenas across Ireland.
As they sponsor the 3Arena, 3Olympia and Electric Picnic, they are in poll position to do just that.
