All great things must come to an end...
Every day throughout Electric Picnic, we'll be cherry-picking seven different acts and events that we think will be the highlights of the festival. The choices can be overwhelming, so trust us, we're here to help!
GEORGE HOOK - PLAY YOUR CARDS RIGHT
Where & When: MINDFIELD - NEWSTALK TENT @ 14.00
The infamous Mister Hook will be bringing the classic '80s TV show to the stage, so you can expect plenty of laughs and plenty of entertainment as George goes live at the middle of the festival!
Where & When: RANKIN'S WOOD @ 17.00
Their debut album Sirens was released at the back end of 2014 and got a lot of comparisons to the likes of Disclosure and Rudimental. Now they're leading up to the release of their sophomore album Kingdom, while their first single 'Zoom Zoom,' featuring Wyclef Jean, is already doing the radio rounds.
Where & When: LITTLE BIG TENT @ 19.15
Described as a mix of Prince and FKA Twigs, Nao released her debut album For All We Know in July and received some of the best reviews of the year to date. If you want to be able to tell your friends "Oh yeah, I saw them at an intimate gig before they got really big", then this is the find for you.
Where & When: MAIN STAGE @ 20.45
Nothing to say except that this is still the best selling dance single of all time. As you were.
BAT FOR LASHES
Where & When: ELECTRIC ARENA @ 21.15
Natasha Khan just keeps going from strength to strength, and the 2016 release of her fourth album The Bride shows her as an artist at the very top of her game. Once nominated for the Ivor Novello award for "Best Song Musically and Lyrically", there is no other artist quite like Bat For Lashes, so expect lots of powerful emotions when you watch her knock her songs out of the park.
LANA DEL RAY
Where & When: MAIN STAGE @ 22.45
One of the most controversial artists in the world (for a number of reasons, to be honest), Del Rey certainly knows how to put an incredibly catchy song together. If you're looking for something with a chillaxed vibe to end the weekend, then you won't be able to do much better than Lana singing about a West Coast experience that may have never existed anywhere but inside her mind.
Where & When: ELECTRIC ARENA @ 23.00
Having taken five years off, Skepta came back with Konnichiwa this year, which featured big hitters like Pharrell Williams, ASAP Nast and Wiley. Upon its release, critics declared that it was the album that would finally get garage and grime the worldwide recognition it deserves. The complete opposite end of the party scale from Lana, if you're looking to blow out your weekend on a high, then Skepta is where to be.
