EXTERNAL SOUNDS @ Electric Picnic 2009

Posted by external sounds on August 18, 2009

External Sounds are back at The Electric Picnic Festival. After the success of the External Sounds tent last year, we have been asked back to host a radio station at this years festival. We will be running Body & Soul FM. The station will be broadcasting live from the Body & Soul Area for the entire duration of this year’s festival. External Sounds will have its own tent similar to last year. The Radio station will be broadcasting music from the tent as well as the Body & Soul Main stage and a studio located within the Body & Soul Area.

The Station will have live sets from the Body & Soul Main stage from artists such as Lamb, Tuung, Donal Dineen, Tulla Ceile Band, Katie Kim and Amorphous Androgenous to name but a few. There will also be Radio shows from the Body & Soul Djs, Ro Flynn, Dave Campbell & Enda Reilly who will be presenting his show ‘as gaeilge’. There will also be interviews from various artists playing the festival and people involved with the organising and running of the festival.

In the External Sounds tent we will have performances from top Irish acts such as Stee Downes, The Informatics, Groovement Soul djs, Intinn, NightFlight Djs, Brian Chamberlain, Subject Djs, and the Fatty Fatty Djs, as well as Drogheda artists Huey & The Hobgoblins, Geriko, Craig Connor, Kev Sheridan and the External Sounds Djs. There will also be some very specials guests playing at the tent during the weekend that we cannot announce just yet. Keep posted for more information!

It all kicks off on the afternoon of Friday 6th September. The tent will run till the wee hours of each morning, while the radio station will be transmitting for 24 hours a day during the festival.
