Body & Soul have released details of their 11th installment at Electric Picnic and it goes without saying that, at this stage, the Picnic without Body & Soul would hardly be a picnic at all. The natural amphitheater, replete with shimmering lights, installations, mysterious corners and several specially constructed stages, holds its own amongst the festivals many, many delights and once again it marks itself as a highlight with details of each of the three stages finally emerging.
The line-up for the Body and Soul Stage contains an amazing array of performers; from the eclectic and joyous tUnE-yArDs, Meltybrains?, Ronan O’Snodaigh & The Occasionals, Perfume Genius and Sounds of a System Breakdown to Olof Arnals, Young Fathers, Oum Shatt, Girl Band and Altered Hours plus many more.
Keeping pace is the Upstage featuring Kowton, Discotekken, Shanti Celeste, Adultrock, Talkboy, Lake People and Ghosts. Not to mention P Disconauts, O.utlier, UNKNWN, Donal Dineen and Reid. Over at the EarthShip Stage we have Maud In Cahoots, Come On Live Long, Punch Face Champions, The Eskies, Simi Crowns, The Amazing Few, Shay Cotter as well as The Amazing Few plus loads more.
Add to this the Zen Garden (wood-fired hot tubs, sea-weed baths, Yoga, holistic therapists…) and you have yourself a little piece of Eden amidst the rest of the Festival madness. All in all, Body & Soul is looking every bit as remarkable as we expect it to be so all things going to plan, we’ll see you there.
Weekend tickets for Electric Picnic are still available.
