Electric Picnic 2022 line up released
Electric Picnic is back this year for its first festival since 2019 and the line up does not disappoint.
Dermot Kennedy, Tame Impala and Arctic Monkeys are set to headline this year’s Electric Picnic, Megan Thee Stallion, Picture This, Snow Patrol and Anne-Marie are also among the marquee acts booked to head back to Co Laois, to perform at Electric Picnic.
Dozens of acts have been confirmed for the arts and music festival, which is expected to attract 70,000 picnickers each day.
Dermot Kennedy took to twitter to express his excitement to be headlining Irelands largest music festival.
It feels surreal to announce that I’ll be headlining @EPfestival this year. I first played EP 7 years ago, to about 20 people sitting in front of the stage at 2 in the afternoon. And I almost didn’t make my set cause they wouldn’t let me into the Artist car park in my old Ford. pic.twitter.com/ZISGudpR5H

Festival Director of Electric Picnic, Melvin Benn, “I’m overwhelmed actually.
“I think it’s been a long wait really and obviously during a two year sort of hiatus you lose acts, you gain acts, we are not immune from that but Dermot Kennedy, Tame Impala, and of course Arctic Monkeys, it’s pretty much a dream come through for us really and if you start to add people like Snow Patrol I think you are getting an incredible array and full description of what the Electric Picnic is really.
