Stradbally Things to Do

    There is so much to do at the Electric Picnic, you can.... have a head massage, dance all night, knit in the knitting tent, origami, visit the internet tent (but WHO would do that??? ;-)) eat, drink, drink some more, smoke, make things, paint things, have random encounters, go shopping for festival fripperies, drink, dance, watch This is Spinal Tap in the cinema tent, wander round the woods and meet crazies... the list is endless and you won't be bored....

    BUT....

    we also came for the music - and the music was fanbloodytastic. We saw The Frames, Elbow, Damien Rice, Josh Ritter (sigh), Lisa Hannigan,Jerry Fish, Duke Special, Vivienne Long, Devendra Barnhart, Paul Noonan, and a host of others I can't remember the names of right now...

    Jerry Fish!! What a guy!!

    One of the reasons we came to the Electric Picnic was to see Guy Garvey and Elbow - how cool are these guys?? A definite highlight of the festival!

    Ohhh HOW we LOVE JR!! :)) Josh Ritter, a first class singer/songwriter from Idaho - we've seen him in London and Brighton and V Fest and now the Electric Picnic and I don't suppose it will be the last time either!

    The Pussy Parlure was a great place to escape the rain between gigs - with its cheesy disco and velvet booths and bacardi bar, it was fun to watch the festival goers boogying on down in their wellies and plastic ponchos!

    is Port Laoise. From there you will need to get the festival bus or a taxi. There seems to be a lot of renovation work going on at this station, but it was difficult to tell exactly what it was in the dark.
