WOAH! Kendrick Lamar, Massive Attack and N.E.R.D have just been announced for Electric Picnic 2018!
The picnic is coming back for another year and with final tickets for the weekend on sale since March 10th, it seems this is going to be another sell-out festival on August 31st, with a crowd of over 55,000 people expected to attend.
While there was much speculation that Snow Patrol and Arctic Monkeys were going to be headliners it has since been revealed that – Pharrell and gang will be hitting Stradbally, with tunes from their new album No One Ever Really Dies alongside some classics.

And after Kendrick Lamar’s sell-out headline show in the 3Arena earlier this year, it’s no surprise he’s coming back to Ireland.
Dua Lipa, Ben Howard, St Vincent, George Ezra, The Kooks, Cigarettes After Sex, Garbage, Chvrches, Mount Kimbie, Tom Misch, Jessie Ware are all a part of the weekend and there’s much more to be announced.
