All The Fun Of The Picnic '10...

Right. This one was a rather busy weekend folks with Tony Blair in causing riots and whatnot and of course the small matter of Electric Picnic bringing the Nation to a halt. We had high hopes after the sun fooled us into a false sense of security on Friday then fecked-off out of the country faster than a former British PM on a book tour...

It could have been the picnic to end all picnics folks. The sun actually shone like a mo-fo on Friday tricking all would-be festival goers into a false sense of confidence before hiding away behind a haze of grey cloud and rain. One deluded Picnicer even boasted to us on Friday that they were gonna leave the wellies behind for the weekend as the weather was gonna hold... Muuuhahahaha!

Glen Hansard - The Frames

Sure enough it got all rainy and dull on Saturday and Sunday, after all, this is Ireland in September. But that didn't stop half of the country heading to Electric Picnic weekend. A deserted Dublin City was as dead as disco.

Lorraine Keane

Among the peeps of note we noted backstage were: Georgia Salpa, Lorraine Keane, Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower, and quite a few more...

Johnny Lydon & PIL (Public Image Limited)
