Bundoran based rockers Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie band were the surprise ‘underground’ act at the Electric Picnic.
On the last night of the festivval the sound of Johnny G belting out ‘freebird’ could be heard from across the Electric Picnic field, attracting a crowd of entranced music lovers jumping up and down to the tunes, despite their weary, muddy, wellie boot-clad feet. Without a doubt the most electric atmosphere out of all of the gigs and bands I saw at the festival. It was such a shame they didn’t have a bigger arena to play at but after their explosive performance this year you can expect to see and hear a lot more from this band. Main stage act next year, please!
