Festival Season : Latest Addition to the Picnic's Basket

Breaking news today (broken by On the Record) is that Janelle Monae will play the shindig in Stradbally come September.

Monae, whose The ArchAndroid is considered one of if not THE album of the year, may just be the butterfly that sways the scales for many potential on-the-fence picnicers.

Other additions include :

Mountain Man (we kinda knew this one)
Freelance Whales
Duke Special
Neon Indian
Dennis Alcapone and The Dubcats
Delta Maid
O Emperor
Joe Echo
Vengeance and the Panther Queen
