Oxfam Ireland has been part of the festival line-up at Electric Picnic for many years with the Oxjam tent – the best place to support home-grown talent and catch up-and-coming unsigned Irish acts as they play the country’s biggest music festival.
For the third year running, we have the support of Abner Browns, State.ie and Homebeat who curate a day each with some of the best up and coming Irish acts on the scene today.
Also for the 3rd year running, we launched the RTE 2FM #playthepicnic competition where 10 lucky acts also get to play on the Oxjam stage. The ten acts were announced on July 29th, details here.
The King Kong Club competition has been a fixture on the Oxjam Line-up for years and this year is no exception. 3 acts are also given a slot to perform on the Oxjam stage, after weeks of heats over the summer.
Check out our line-up for 2016 below.
