One a day Live

Cúpla focal to take centre stage at Electric Picnic

The Irish language is to be more prevalent than ever at Electric Picnic this year, with a campsite for Irish speakers among the festival's new additions.

Discover and celebrate Irish culture, music, and language with Bliain na Gaeilge sa Chollchoill (The Hazel Wood After Dark).

Bliain na Gaeilge sa Chollchoill

REIC poets and storyteller Aindrias de Staic will guide wanderers through the forest, enchanting them with a range of beautiful and explosive music acts including Belfast rappers KNEECAP, trad fusion geniuses Scannal, pop band Seo Linn, Lauren Ní Chasaide, Liam O'Connor, Just Like Us, Dó Fá Dó, The Kelly Hooley agus Cairde (baill Moxie) TCD Trad Soc, Ciréib, Macdara, and UCC Trad Soc.

The area will also have a Celtic hairstylist and woodland-themed body art will be available, as well as bewitching storytelling and music around the bonfire.

Raidió Rí-Rá will broadcast live from the woods over the weekend.

There are only a few spaces left for those who wish to pitch their tents in the first ever Gaeltacht campsite at Electric Picnic.

Irish will be the first language in this new camping area which is available for ticket holders only.

An Puball Gaeilge

"Electric Picnic is and arts and cultural festival," said said Sorcha O' Reilly of Festival Republic.

"The Hazel Wood After Dark, or An Chollchoill, will provide a platform on which we can celebrate our culture, our language, and all it has to offer.

[quote]This area will provide and additional space for the Irish speaking community, but all will be welcome - we hope to inspire people of all backgrounds to take part in the music and atmosphere created in this enchanting space.[/quote]

An Chollchoill and An Ghaeltacht will build upon the presence the Irish language already has at Electric Picnic thanks to An Puball Gaeilge in the Mindfields.

Join Raidió na Life, Raidió Fáilte and An Cabaret Craiceáilte for music and entertainment all weekend, sponsored by Glór na nGael.
