A selection of Young musicians who participate in Music Generation Laois programmes, received a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at this year’s Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co Laois (29-31 August). Music Generation Laois, along with Music Generation Limerick City and the national Music Generation office, hosted a range of performances and workshops at Electric Picnic 2014. All Music Generation Laois activity took place in the Mindfield Arena, centered around the Music Generation stage, and the custom-designed, Graffiti art double decker bus from Music Generation Limerick City.

Performances throughout the weekend included a giant choir, ‘One Voice’, led by Music Generation Laois and featuring 70 singers from Laois, Donegal, Carlow and Offaly-Westmeath. The Music Generation Laois Stampede Drumming Group and a group of rappers from Music Generation Limerick City also performed, to an enthralled audience. The Music Generation Laois Traditional Music Orchestra performed on both the Music Generation Stage, and the Puball na Gaelige stage, and were broadcasted live on Radio na Lifé from the Festival.
