Four massive headliners announced in line-up for Electric Picnic 2019

Plenty for music lovers to enjoy.

If you need further proof of Electric Picnic's incredible popularity with the Irish public, just remember that this year's festival sold out before a single artist was named on the line-up.

The tickets were all snapped up in just 15 minutes too. Now that's devotion!

Well, for the lucky ducks who did manage to get a ticket, they'll be watching the likes of The Strokes, Florence + The Machine, Hozier and The 1975 headline the festival in Stradbally later this year.

Amongst the other names on the line-up, the likes of, Billie Eilish, Christine and the Queens, James Blake and Dermot Kennedy will also take to the various stages over the course of the weekend.

Four Tet, Jess Glynne, The Streets, Jarvis Cocker Introducing JARV IS, Years & Years, Róisín Murphy, Metronomy, Michael Kiwanuka, Echo & the Bunnymen, Courtney Barnett, Parquet Courts, Mitski, Miles Kane and Freya Ridings are also some of the big names confirmed, alongside MØ, Amelie Lens, Maceo Plex, Kölsch, Sam Fender, Sons of Kemet, Yves Tumor and many more.

Electric Picnic

Electric Picnic 2019 will see an increase in capacity of 2,500 people, bringing the overall capacity to 57,500.

With 600 acres on the Stradbally Estate to visit, music fans can look forward to some brand new areas to explore, inclding a new location called Freetown.

Construction will shortly get underway to create a whole new town within the festival's creative acreage, located on the pastureland formerly occupied by the Oscar Wilde Campsite.

As always, we expect plenty of new names to be added to the line-up over the coming months.

Let the countdown begin.
