A couple of extra sambos buttered and triangled ahead of the picnic...
The confusion surrounding Electric Picnic's late initial line-up announcement bordered on the ludicrous with national newspapers, bloggers and radio all so keen to pounce on the prized "scoop". My Bloody Valentine were part of a fake announcement which suckered in this blogger here. To add to the confusion, Kevin Shields' shoegazers were then added to the list of officially confirmed acts that already included Bjork, Fat Boy Slim and Arctic Monkeys less than a week later.
The latest announcement has confirmed Robert Plant presents the Sensational Space Shifters, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Little Green Cars, John Grant, Night Beds will all contribute to the shenanigans in Stradbally come August.
