CULTIVATE...a cooler earth


COMMUNICATING CLIMATE CHANGE AT THE ELECTRIC PICNIC
Our climate is changing … will you?

With oil depletion and climate change along with health, social and environmental concerns we have no choice but to rethink the way we do everything.
In partnership with Pod Concerts & Aiken Promotions Cultivate will produce ‘Cultivate...a Cooler Earth’, making this boutique festival the most carbon
responsible on the island and literally the ‘coolest’.

Featuring....

The Solar Cinema screening edgy documentaries and other media throughout the festival, The Powerdown Lounge...the place to relax and reflect with
talks, debates, exhibits and art to inform and entertain and the Carbon Confession Box where you can calculate your footprint and then relieve your
conscience by confessing your carbon sins.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AT ELECTRIC PICNIC

Amnesty International Irish Section will have a campaigning presence at Electric Picnic this year, following on our very successful participation last year
where among many things we had more then 16,000 postcards on 5 different human rights cases signed by festival goers.

We are asking the headlining acts for this year’s Electric Picnic if they would like to participate in our Save the People of Darfur Campaign by singing a John
Lennon song as part of their performance. We are organising a text petition so that audience can take immediate action to Save the People of Darfur.

If you are interested in lending your support to this effort by performing a John Lennon song of your choice at Electric Picnic 2007 please contact Amnesty
Ireland’s Campaigns and Activism Manager, Kieran Clifford on +353 (0) 1.677.6361, ext 217, +353 86.342.4027 or on kclifford@amnesty.ie.

THE BODY & SOUL VILLAGE


A wicked chill stage showcasing many of our favorite musicians and bands, 80 of Ireland’s finest holistic therapists, experiential workshops in just about
anything from massage to felt hat making!, yoga to magic skills. And weaving through this are the lost horizon sauna and hot tub temple, the Bog cottage
with its quirky theatrical acts, the foot spa salon, a permaculture garden with its acoustic music moon lodge, the Irish seed savers veggie plot…AND
wrapped around all of that,….well…. ridiculous amounts of love injected throughout the entire village, love in spirit, and love made 3 dimensional in the
form of sumptuous décor and art installations, night time illuminations, chill out pods, bean bags, ambient music by day and a damn funky vibe by night,
theatrical outbursts, spontaneous jams, tipi fires, tribal vibes, organic food and well….it just keeps on going…!!!

Well it sounds like a lot to take in, and a paragraph just can’t possibly bring take even the wildest of minds to what is truly another world….so how about
this….expect the unexpected, even better, leave your expectations at the door, enter with an open mind…do this and we promise you will leave with an
open heart and a skip in your step.

The Body & Soul village opens each morning at 10am and closes at 4am.

Committing random acts of kindness is our only request (and some litter picking too, so that even nature can have a rest!)

THE CHILL STAGE in the Body & Soul Village:


INVITATION TO ALL ARTISTS!
The acoustic stage is nestled in the centre of that natural, lightly wooded, ampithetre on Stradbally Hall Estate that the
Body & Soul area calls home. This stage is loosely programmed with some slots intentionally left clear for you, the
Electric Picnic artists, to perform should the fancy take you. If you do wander down to this area for a look (and I highly
recommend that you do) and if you would like to perform on the stage, just approach those working in the area….
radios being a giveaway as to whom these people are! (fyi buggy’s are another giveaway, but if it were me I’d prefer
chase after a radio any day!). Alternatively let your artist liaison know and he/she/it will get in touch on your behalf.

WHAT THE WEATHER MAN IS GIVING!

As they say in Ireland, ‘if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes!’.

We of course keep a watchful eye on metcheck (and regularly cross the palms of gipsys with silver!).
Our findings?.... well, we don’t want to jinx ourselves but lets just say bring your sunglasses,
your sombrero and your factor 40!
(I know, I know, reading between the lines is so tricky sometimes!)

Participants of the Electric Picnic please note:


MAGIC is for on-site use only!!!
