Electric Picnic – Final acts announced

As Ireland’s only major festival this year, expectation is high and it looks as if Electric Picnic may just be about to rise to the challenge. With a fairly impressive lineup already confirmed, more acts have just been added to Stradbally for 2012. Along with some of popular music’s biggest names we now have some of the most hotly tipped breakthrough acts of the last 12 months. Add to that a sprinkling of soul-stardom plus some of Ireland’s national treasures and you’ll hear very few people bemoan the absence of Oxegen this summer.

The newest announcements are:

Kimbra
