LIMERICK based hip-hop/electro trio Rusangano Family will play at Electric Picnic in September.

The trio, who recently released acclaimed debut album Let The Dead Bury The Dead, have been booked for the Other Voices stage for the September 2 – 4 music and arts festival.

Rusangano join the Booka Brass Band, Heathers, Le Galaxie, Saint Sister, Julia Jacklin and others on a stellar line-up.

Meanwhile, Ralph Rolle, drummer with legendary band Chic, who have played Limerick twice in recent years, will demonstrate another of his remarkable talents at this year’s Theatre of Food at Electric Picnic.

The highly accomplished baker will make a selection of his much loved and sought after cookies, as well as playing some of Chic’s best known songs and discussing how he manages to combine playing and touring with the band while running his successful food business.
