Although there's been no official confirmation, the word on the industry grapevine is that this year's Electric Picnic headliners will include Bjork, the Beastie Boys, Primal Scream and Damon Albarn and Paul Simonon's new outfit, The Good, The Bad & The Queen.
If that's the case, it's an impressive opening salvo for the Stradbally Hall boutique festival, which takes place this year over three days.
Ms.Guðmundsdóttir will be coming armed with a new album, Volta, which is out on May 7 and features guest appearances by Antony Hegarty, Timbaland and LFO’s Mark Bell.
100% definite is the return of the Hot Press Chatroom, which last year had riotous public chinwags with New Order, Bloc Party, DJ Shadow, Josh Ritter, The Rapture and The Frames.
Ttickets priced €220 go on sale at 9am on April 3rd and, given how last year’s bash went, aren’t likely to hang around for long.

She has a fine track record of bringing wildly idiosyncratic music to the masses but this is impenetrable even by Björk’s wilful standards. The song is a caustic barrage of thundering IDM rhythms, topped off with the Icelander’s trademark, tremulous wail. Not unlike much of her previous material, then, but it lacks the undercurrent of vulnerability and petrified melody that characterises a great Björk record.Read More
Initially with Volta all the signs look good. It is clearly the liveliest and most outwards looking record she’s made this decade.Read More

Medulla left people lost for words - in the best possible way - and this single honours Bjork’s tradition of marrying complexity with atmospheric esoterica. As one of the album’s more accessible tracks, ‘Who Is It’ is the perfect gateway into Bjork’s wonderful, if a little warped, world.Read More
