With just under a week to go the line-up have been unveiled Electric Picnic's ArtLot Stage...
Take a wrong turn down a forest path and you may find yourself at a place called ArtLot. The Electric Picnic’s Alternative visual arts and music stage.
Once upon a time on a little corner of Dublin city, ArtLot, a derelict site, held its own as an open-air public exhibition space inspiring and amusing passers-by with its monthly programme of visual art and performance. When the hotel developers moved in, ArtLot was rescued by Electric Picnic and the artists were given a permanent home deep in the woods of Stradbally Hall.
This year, renowned Dublin mural painter Kevin Bohan will be presenting a large-scale solo exhibition of his new series of “Rat” paintings. Master printmaker Terrie O’Neill of Tonink Studios will be presenting an exhibition of her work and providing visitors with the opportunity to create their own limited edition prints. The Art Doctors will be giving festival patrons a free consultation and prescribing them an art class to soothe their festival ailments.Illuminating the area, you’ll spot hanging mobile installations by Limerick based textile artist Rachel Moloney. Graffiti artists will be painting Live throughout the weekend accompanied by pop-up performances, madmen dressed like grannies, freaks and funky fire eaters.
Music for the weekend will include Roe Byrne, Leah Moran, Shane Beirne, Tadhg, Calvin Hynes, Viscose, Pauric O Meara, Craig Cooney, The District, Sean Loyns, Ryan O'Shaughnessy, Sky Atlas, Harry Fennell, Kevin Neary, Big Sleep, DJ HIPPYHUN, DJ Sharpson. Spoken word artist Phil Kenny will also be performing. The Artlot is curated Dublin based arts collective The Glow Depot with music programmed by Fluttertone.
