As theatrical as you’d expect from one of Ireland’s biggest festivals, Anachronica promises to be a vibrant and sound-heavy addition to the Electric Picnic roster. Owing somewhat to the famous Block9 festival installations at some of the UK’s largest festivals, Anachronica also appears to have a legacy with the kind of mechanical, quirky oddities that can be spotted in the surrounds of Stradbally every September.
Billed as “the mesmerising beat in the forest that promises to entertain Picnickers when the lights have dimmed in the main arena until the early hours”, here’s how the lineup for the area is looking:
Friday 2nd September will see All City Records Presents kick proceedings off with Subject Dublin’s Lee Kelly, Daire and Sonel and Frank B on their line up.
Saturday night will see District 8 Presents taking over with Cailin, Aeron and Rift B2B and Nathan Jones keeping Picnickers dancing until the small hours.
Finally, Sunday Times Presents will wrap up Electric Picnic 2016 on Sunday with Gilbert Steele, Kenny Hanlon and Sunday Times DJs.
