Electric Picnic: Red Bull Music Academy Announce Line-Up


Following a seven year hiatus from Electric Picnic, Red Bull Music Academy are back and as good as ever for the festival’s 10th Birthday.

Friday night will see Berlin native DJ & producer Ben Klock kick things off at the Red Bull Music Academy Stage. The DJ is a leader of techno, has held a residency at Berlin’s Berghain nightclub since 2004 and has practically hand-crafted the club’s sound and atmosphere.

Saturday night will kick off with Rupert Taylor, better known as xxxy. The Manchester based producer will bring his signature mix of garage and house to the fest so you can get your fill on dubby basslines. Following this, you’ll get a run through of the highs of Irish electronic music over the past few years. Acts will include Colm K, Tu-Ki, Quiet Dust, Toby Kaar, Frank B, New Jackson and a host more acts yet to be announced.

Don’t worry, coming back to the fest along with the stage will be the Red Bull Cocktail Bar, just to make sure there’ll never be a lull in this sure to be sleepless weekend.

Red Bull Music Academy Stage Opening Times:

Friday: 16.00 – 04.00

Saturday: 18.00 – 04.00

Sunday: 18.00 – 04.00
