If you’re lucky enough to have tickets, you have some decisions to make. The impressive lineup this year is full of plenty of “can’t miss” acts, but unless you have the ability to be in two places at once, here’s 10 of the acts you should prioritise throughout the weekend.
1. Dermot Kennedy
Since the release of his successful mixtape “Doves and Ravens” in 2017, Dermot Kennedy has made a splash across the international music scene. At this year’s SxSW, the Dublin-born artist, was hailed as the “breakout act of 2018” by the New York Times and “next level” by NPR. He manages to create a unique sound that combines folk and hip hop, grit and delicacy. With two sold-out shows coming up in October, you’d best catch him while you can at Electric Picnic. It might be the last chance you have to see him perform for awhile.
