Electric Picnic 2004 was the year it all started. It started as a one day event for 10,000 people on a gloriously sunny September Saturday . It was billed as a Boutique music festival and with such a diverse line up of not just music it promptly sold out. It was a first for Ireland and destined to keep going for a very long time.
Nobody quite new what to expect but with a line-up including Groove Armada, 2 Many DJ’s, Super Furry Animals, Mylo and Soulwax, comedy and theatre, great food Electric Picnic started off with a bang.
The festival was christened ‘The festival of good intentions’, with its laid back attitude and nothing else in the country to rival it, it is no wonder that Electric Picnic became firmly entrenched as a must go to event in the Festival calendar.
“It seems that those who went simply in search of some good craic, enjoyed a fun day that was miraculously blessed with amazing weather.”
