Here are a few shots that I took while down at Electric Picnic.
My van is so handy. It’s a Toyota townace. The seats fold down into a bed, which I cosy up by adding an air mattress and loads of covers. Three of us slept comfortably in it. Then at the end of the festival I popped up all the seats and fitted both artworks in the back, a deadly transformer.
I have attended electric picnic since it begun back in 2004. This was its 9th year and I think maybe it’s best. The weather was amazing and everyone was in top form.
The second year we went to the picnic we found a tree stump thrown and posed for a photograph with it. I hadn’t seen the stump any other year since but we found it this year and re-enact the photo as best we could remember.
Next year will be the festivals 10th anniversary and I hope to have some more art displayed in the festival, it was such an amazing learning experience.
I away love looking around the festival and getting ideas from all of the arts and crafts, here are a few of my favourites from this year.
I really liked this yurt garden, its such a good idea. You can climb tomatoes, peas and flowers up it, have your herbs and veg inside it, as well as a really nice place to chill out on a nice day. The doors into it were real magical too.
I first seen this piece down in Carrigaholt Co. Clare, for the Seol Sionna Launch and Boating Festival back in May. I remember thinking to myself that it was so good that they should display it at Electric Picnic. I was so happy to see it in the green crafts area at the Picnic. I love the eyes.
