“It’s going to be LOUD”

Today FM is gearing up to bring its hugely successful Sound Garden Stage back to Electric Picnic next weekend and this year’s line up is set to be bigger and better than ever before.

With the sole intention of giving festival goers more of what they love at the biggest festival of the year, The Today FM Sound Garden Stage will welcome a host of familiar and new faces to its stage across live music performances, energetic DJ sets and a karaoke production that’s as much comedy as it is music!

Irish band, Wild Youth will kick off the weekends proceedings when they take to the Sound Garden stage on Friday at 5PM. Wild Youth have become a national sensation since they launched in 2017 with popular singles ‘All or Nothing’ and ‘Lose Control’. They have been building momentum to their album release with their newest single ‘Can’t Move On’. Across the weekend, The Sound Garden stage will also be home to daily (& nightly!) DJ sets from a host of Today FM presenters including Fergal D’Arcy, Ed Smith, Joe Donnelly and Kelly-Anne Byrne.

Adding a twist to the weekend, Today FM’s Dermot & Dave (weekdays 9am-midday) will host ‘Cheese & Cracker Karaoke’, a performance that can only be seen at Electric Picnic.

Speaking ahead of their performance Dermot & Dave said;

“Cheese and Cracker Karaoke is so much craic! The atmosphere was amazing last year; the tent was bursting at the seams! This year we’ve gone even bigger with more cheesy tunes, more crackin’ crackers and more big celebrity appearances – do not miss it!”

Meanwhile, Declan Pierce will debut his ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ live show on the Sound Garden stage;

 “I’m absolutely living for this gig! It’ll be our first time to bring Block Rockin’ Beats live with the Hit Machine Drummers to Electric Picnic, and I think it adds an extra buzz that it’ll be live on Today FM too.” He says.

Speaking about the special guests that will be joining him on stage Declan adds, “My full radio show will broadcast from the stage and I’ll be joined by DJs John Gibbons and Robbie G for guest mixes. The final hour from 8pm – 9pm is when we plan to lift the roof off the place when I launch into a dance classics DJ set with 7 drummers on stage with me! It’s gonna be LOUD! Expect tunes from Faithless, The Prodigy, Underworld and Darude”

Tribute legends Spring Break will return to bring all of the nostalgia to Today FM’s big yellow tent. That’s not all; this year Today FM will be offering free festival make-overs to those who visit the tent.

The Today FM Sound Garden stage is located in the main arena beside the JustEat Retreat and opposite Casa Bacardi.

Today FM is official radio partner of Electric Picnic 2018 and next week will give people a final chance to win tickets to the sold out festival.
