Electric Ireland, the official energy partner of Electric Picnic, reeled in the years with its #ThrowbackParty at Ireland’s biggest music festival this year. Attendees of the sold-out, three-day festival enjoyed a feast of nostalgic entertainment spanning the ‘80s, ‘90s and ‘00s at the Electric Ireland Throwback stage. Dr. Alban, the Nigerian-born Swedish musician and producer, kicked off the week-end with classic hits 'It's My Life' and 'Sing Hallelujah' and had the crowd bopping to their heart’s content. The second act that wooed the crowds were pop-synth princesses Bananarama, who performed floor-filling classics like Cruel Summer, Venus and Love in the First Degree on the Saturday night.

‘90s act Snap! brought the ultimate Throwback week-end to a close; the German Eurodance project performed dance classics such as ‘Rhythm Is a Dancer’ and ‘The Power’.

In addition to great Throwback music acts and daily dance-offs to throwback hits, picnickers took time out to chillax while enjoying classic movies such as The Goonies and Top Gun, all hosted at the Electric Ireland stage throughout the weekend.

As official energy partner to Electric Picnic, Electric Ireland also installs six kilometres of energy efficient festoon lighting around the campsites and walkways to guide attendees around the festival.
