Electric Picnic Picks - Peter Picks

With the gates to the biggest event on Ireland's festival calendar opening in just a week we decided that each of the 3 of us here are 2 U I Bestow would give you our top 5 must see bands at this years Electric Picnic. So here we are with Peter's must see acts this year in Stradbally.

Must See Overall -  Slowdive

The overall headliners do little for me so I'm picking Nostalgic Fuzzy Logic with Slowdive being my must see act over the weekend.


Must See Newcomer - Benjamin Booker

Being 22 and from New Orleans, you may not have had the pleasure of checking out Benjamin Booker's music brand of bluesy rock n roll. Be sure to get yourself out of the tent early over the weekend to catch one of the hottest acts on the line-up:



Must See Irish Band - Ham Sandwich

 Ham Sandwich never disappoint live and they'll up their game for the Picnic.


 Must See on the Salty Dog - Pete Pamf Sextet

You have to be there to hear tunes like this live, you just have to be there ....

Must See 4 The Craic - The Trampz [Trailer Park, Friday Night]

The smaller stages are full of band who are great fun to see live. Reverend JM's Panic Worship, The Viking Project, Duke Special, The Bionic Rats, Camille O'Sullivan but for my money the best fun will be dancing to the funky grooves of Dundalk's finest band ever; The Trampz
