For this press photo call we created an on-street urban representation of the Salty Dog and Trailer Park areas of the Electric Picnic festival, with a ship hull emerging from the side of The Chocolate Factory building. Guerilla Aerila, a troop of gender-bending (and indeed species bending!) aerial performers made waves while renowned Irish band Ham Sandwich performed from the ship’s hull, while its comedic captain – Danny Dowling – announced the lineup with theatrical effect!
Our launch party followed in rip-roaring fashion. Guests of this “invite-only” event were treated to delicious food from Kinara Kitchens, Blas Cafe, Homes Fries & Wildflour Bakery. Entertainment included aerial performances, music from Ham Sandwich and The Mighty Stef, and the hilarious rippings of comedian Danny Dowling. And of course the space was dressed in true Electric Picnic style, with art installations created from bicycle wheels, giant lampshades, decorative canopy’s, lighting, and much, much, much more!
