Dear Artiste,

WELCOME ONE AND ALL!
This Electronic Artist Booklet is your guide to the Electric Picnic. It contains all of the information you will need in order to get here, to navigate the site, who to contact in any instance, the running orders and all the quirky things that will be going around you. We invite you to take part in and enjoy the festival. While this booklet should answer the majority of your questions, please feel free to contact us with any query you may have. We are at your disposal! We are very much looking forward to working with you all. Kind regards, POD Concerts & Aiken Promotions (If you have any queries please feel free to contact Sorcha who is your representative in POD Concerts - for contact details click the icon below)

e at POD Concerts and Aiken Promotions would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Electric Picnic which is, for most, the last gig of the festival season. On September 4th 2004 the Electric Picnic Festival took place for the first time on the rolling lawns of Stradbally Hall Estate in Co Laois, a 600 acre estate in the heart of Ireland. It was a one-day boutique Music Festival with an intimate capacity of 15,000 people. The first ever Electric Picnic sold out and was one of the hottest days of the year, in more ways than one! From here our music-filled ‘day-out’ has quickly grown to a 3 day festival, across seven stages, with camping and lots else besides. It has become a major marker in the calinder of the music fan with eclectic taste buds and attracts an audience every bit as eclectic as the music! The overwhelmingly positive response from all whom had attended in 2005, including the local authorities, anchored our roots firmly for this year. Over the past eleven months Electric Picnic has blossomed into an even more quirky event that anyone can enjoy. We are very happy with our line-up this year. We would like to thank you all very much for agreeing to take part in our festival. With your input we know it will be a success.

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.

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.

The intention over the next few years is to recreate that village-like feeling that can be found in many small towns dotted across Ireland - where there is a sense of community, music, laughter, silliness and a creamy pint! And what is the centre of any tiny village? The Village Hall of course! Aside from being the pace to hear the latest village gossip, the Electric Picnic Village Hall will host daily barn dances, salsa classes, an 8 piece swing band and ceilies galore!

Located: Main Shower Block in Green Campsite & Boutique Campsite Pamper Palace Price List: see www.electricpicnic.ie

Fresh local farmers produce brought in daily and on sale from 8am-8pm. Produce will include Truffle Fairy chocolates, fudge, freshly baked breads and muffins, local strawberries, Soul Bakery pizza slices, Real Olive Co, Italian meats and cheeses…. to naMMMM!e but a few!

THE NEXT STAGE
The Next Stage is an exciting and interactive daylight & after-hours space offering a collaboration of fine creative talents fresh from the European festival circuit.

Take part or just amuse yourself as you watch the silent mayhem in the campsite after dark! In the Silent Disco everybody who joins in gets given a wireless headphone. The sound is superb. So too is the spectacle: for the voyeurs amongst you … watch the crowd dance their socks off but hear no music….just the ‘shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, shuffle’ of dancing feet….the scene is hillarious to behold!!!

THE ROOTS N’ REGGAE TENT
It goes against the nature of Electric Picnic to fit any stage into a music category but the DJs in this tent do what it says on the tin, and more!

INFLATABLE CHURCH
The Big Love Inflatable Church will be bursting at the seams with merriment at the Electric Picnic. The Reverend Duncan Pritchard will be overseeing the proceedings, where you can find your perfect partner, invite your wedding guests and get hitched, in the only inflatable church in the world. Alongside him will be his jilted, dishevelled brides and some carefree choir boys getting down.

FOSSETT’S - The IRISH for Circus!
Fossett’s, Ireland’s National Circus, is delighted to bring their own particular brand of magic to this year’s Electric Picnic. Since 1875 they have visited communities all over the country and the name Fossett’s has become synonymous with circus in Ireland. Generations of Irish families have walked into thie Big Top and been transported to a mystical world where anything is possible. Long before cinema, television

Come join our weird and wonderful congregation full of fabulous games and shenanigans.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE
We are working hard to make your access on to the site a quick and pain free process. Please follow the directions and yellow route as advised in the ‘Getting here’ section. Once you arrive at the artist gate Hazel will greet you. Hazel will ask for the name of the act AND THE TOUR MANAGERS NAME. This will be the on-the-day contact person detailed on the itineraries that you have already received. From here hazel will point you in the direction you need to go. She will radio the Artist Checkin (which is en route to the dressing rooms). One of the army of staff in this checkin will hand your passes to you and direct you to artist car park/ bus parking/ artist area…whereever you need to go. If you would like to make it even smoother, give Hazel a call 15 mins before you expect to arrive – 00353(0)878260428.

THE ARTIST AREA
Our aim is to provide a quality experience for all who come to the Electric Picnic. Most of the dressing rooms are located adjacent to the Artist Area. The Artist Area will be a comfy zone with plush cushions, cosy couches and a cocktail bar. It will hold many little touches to keep you amused such as a pool table, table football and an old style pin ball machine. All of these will be housed in the ‘Opium Den’, an oriental tent dressed in silks and finaries. If you are weary from life on the road, speak to your artist liaison about booking in for a massage at the Body & Soul area. Arrive and relax!

WHEN WILL YOU ARRIVE?
To allow adequate time for set up, please arrive on site at least FOUR HOURS before you are due to go onstage. Bear in mind that traffic surrounding the festival site will be congested, so allow for this in your transportation schedule.

RIDER
A standard festival rider suitable to the size of your touring party will be provided in your dressing room. As the Electric Picnic Festival site is not in close proximity to a town we may not be able to accommodate on-the-day requests. For this reason please make any special requests well in advance.

PERFORMANCE TIMES
The performance and change-over times are extremely strict. Any artist failing to start promptly due to late arrival or being ill prepared will have the delay taken off their performance time. Please note that there is a per-minute fine imposed by the local council should we overrun our curfew. Any artist contributing to an overrun will incur the fine.

DRESSING ROOM
Due to the large number of acts performing at the Electric Picnic this year we are not in a position to provide a dressing room for each artist for the duration of stay. We will make every effort to accommodate the artistes for as long as possible prior to and after their performance. Please note that when dressing rooms need to be vacated we expect cooperation.

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!!!
