Twenty is going to be pissed. Via Eskimo Friends is news that Electric Picnic is going to have Damien Rice be a stage curator.
Damien will be performing at the Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally, Co. Laois, Ireland, on the weekend of September 1st. Damien has spoken in the past about wanting to organise a boutique festival and Hot Press reports that Damien will be hosting a stage at this year’s festival.
Is this the new twist for Electric Picnic this year? Have curators for the stages? One curator per stage per night? All Tomorrows Parties do this for their yearly festival. It’s an interesting and fun idea. I think they had Matt Groening (creator of Simpsons) curating one of the days last year.
