ELECTRIC PICNIC READING - SATURDAY 5th
FERRIS WHEEL AND SCULPTURE AT ELECTRIC PICNIC 2008
CHILLING OUT IN THE VILLAGE AT ELECTRIC PICNIC 2008
I'm reading at my favourite festival, Electric Picnic, on Saturday, thanks to Marty Mulligan who hosts The Word stage in The MindField, the spoken word and cinema area.
The wordy and lit-bit of the festival goes from strength to strength each year and I am tickled pink to be reading at it. (Cue my pink wellies being dragged from under the Hoover under the stairs...) There are 5 of us reading at my allotted time and I do believe I was in school in Dublin - Scoil Chaitríona - with one of them, Suzanne Doyle.
The stage is described like this on the EP website:
"The Word showcases a fine blend of poetry, spoken word, slam, prose, rap, readings, literature, comedy and music brought to you by an eclectic mix of national and international writers, poets and performers, all backed by The Aftermath, an act the Irish Independent rated as "the saviours of Irish rock" and they'll be mixing it up with some very special guest artists throughout the weekend."
WHERE: THE WORD STAGE
WHEN: 12.45pm - 1.45pm, Sat 5th Sep 2009
READERS: Andre Kapor, Suzanne Doyle, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Delta O'Hara and Gary Galway
