Electric Picnic Night Two as told in tweets from Stradbally

Things ramped up.

SATURDAY HAD A lot to live up to if it was going to match Friday’s Electric Picnic shenanigans.

Luckily, it took it up a notch.

It was a good start to the day for some

And a chipper showed the GAA game, so that attracted a crowd

And this was always there for those suffering the effects of Friday night

The weather stayed solid going into the evening

The Riptide Movement played early on

The crowd were waiting for Mark McCabe

And Maniac 2000 went down OK with them.

David O’Doherty closed out the comedy stage in style

There was the regular eclectic mix of people taking to the stage

Glen Hansard pitched up

And did his thing in the Other Voices tent

Once the night came, the costumes got even better

And Sam Smith played the main stage

Everyone was waiting for Blur though, and this person put in some effort

Hope his view was grand.

As always, Blur killed it

And indulged in a little Ole Ole

But otherwise brought out the big guns

Which left everyone there satisfied

Now, just one night left.
