The eclectic staple of Electric Picnic will see acts like JyellowL. Scustin, Cherym, Post Punk Podge, and many more take to the stage across the weekend.
"A haven of hilarious caravans", Trailer Park is set to be a more splendorous site than ever before, with a slew of fantastic musical acts and a heap of new trailers joining in on the fun.
The acts taking to the stage so far consist of: Attention Bebe, Yard, JyellowL, Cable Street Collective, Interskalactic, Acid Granny, Scribes, Stoat, Post Punk Podge, Cooks But We're Chefs, Onion Boys, Toshin, The Deadlians, The 45s, Harvest, Clara Treacy, Scustin, Cherym, Luna Boys, The Pearly Whites, Manden Express, Branwen, and more.
Alongside this act announcement bursting with incredible Irish talent, EP have brought ecstatic fans the list of trailers parking up for the first weekend of September. Anchored by the Mobile Home Stage, quite literally a stage set in the form of a ‘static’ complete with bedroom, kitchen, lavatory and lounge, the park will include kooky caravan names like: Nun of That, Come to your Census, The Vaniel O’Donnell Experience, Caravanaoke, and Who Let the Dad’s Out? to name a few.
One of the most highly visited areas of the festival, Trailer Park has been established as solid part of Electric Picnic culture: "the place to go to truly experience the soul of Electric Picnic" and a "mobile-tropolis of stunning visual creativity" the park has been dubbed.
Bray band Scustin are one Hot Press are particularly excited to see rock the Trailer Park. Having just settled down after a UK/Ireland tour ahead of the quartet's set at All Together Now - it is incredibly hard to tell how a night at Electric Picnic will go with this mad lot. Could we see another mosh pit to "Don't put blackcurrant in that pint of Guinness"? Who knows! In any case, we're certain it shouldn't be missed.
Limerick's Post Punk Podge is notorious for his incredible live performances. Playing his hometown's Féile na Gréine a few weeks prior to EP - we hope he's geared up and ready for an incredible set. No doubt he will be.
Bringing some undeniably slick rap talent to the trailer park stage is Irish-Nigerian hip-hop sensation JYellowL. Hot Press are excited to see this fast-rising starlet bring tracks from his critically acclaimed debut album 2020 D|vision to the picnic, alongside his other works.
And how could we not mention Cherym! The Northern Irish trio will bring their zingy, fearless new recipe for pop punk rock to the mobile-tropolis, inspiring hope for the future of Irish punk across attendees.
With a big announcement set to come this Friday, August 12, from the festival organisers, Hot Press is incredibly excited to return to this staple of Irish musical events.
