Last weekend’s Electric Picnic was an embarrassment of riches and State’s photographers worked above and beyond the call of duty to cover a vast amount of acts. In a collection of previously unpublished photos we’d like to re-live the weekend for you in one extensive gallery with notable appearances from The Roots, Alabama Shakes, Grandaddy, Delorentos, SBTRKT, Villagers and Lianne La Havas amongst the many others here.
More than anything these images will help you re-live two of the most insane gigs of the weekend, both home-grown. If you weren’t there you’ll have a good idea what you missed, and if you were there no doubt you’ll feel that pinch of blissful nostalgia looking through images of Ham Sandwich’s Saturday afternoon Cosby tent gig and the sky-scraping Le Galaxie 3am set.
