The last big festival of the summer is nearly upon us, and as usual the lineup features some of the must-see acts of the year. Already 2009 has seen some awesome albums from Bat For Lashes, Micachu & The Shapes, Florence & The Machine... and many other artists which grace the Electric Picnic bill.
I've always thought that the lineup for Electric Picnic is kinda like an bit of a crazy mixtape composed for you by the organisers of the festival. There may be a lot of stuff you haven't heard of, but you can be damned sure that the vast majority of it is gonna be stuff you'll like.
With that in mind, Egoeccentric have prepared a mixtape to act as your audio guide to the Picnic- giving you a taste of the acts which we consider to be unmissable. Old and new, main stage to small tents... and it's mixed together all purdy likes.
