Sound of the Nation



Congrats to Anne Marie Earley on the win!

What a week!

We’re wrecked!

It’s been like a real Picnic on 2fm with headlining performances over the weekend from Disclosure, Sam Smyth, Gavin James, Orbital, Picture This, LCD Soundsystem and of course Arctic Monkeys. 

Not forgetting two unforgettable performances with the RTE Concert Orchestra by Jenny Green and the Story of Hip Hop with DJ Mo-K. 

We brought you previous interviews, performances and reports from the fields of Stradbally over the last few years of the most amazing music festival of them all. 

And then there was the prize!

Four VIP passes to Electric Picnic for the next five years!

And the winner was…..

Anne Marie Earley who told us the story of how she wound up in the Festival Medical tent wearing an adult nappy with no memory of how she got there!

We sprang the news of her win with a phone call live on the Jenny Greene Show on Monday. And Anne Marie was so excited to hear the news that she said she might be needing another adult nappy really fast!


Big thanks to everyone who sent us their memories of Electric Picnic. It really brought a smile to the nation. And we could do with the smiles right now!

The makers of Electric Picnic were on to say congrats to Anne Marie and they told us to tell you – “We’re looking forward to seeing everyone coming back through the gates in Stradbally 3rd – 5th of September 2021.”
