Outkast to headline Ireland's 2014 Electric Picnic Festival

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Outkast is adding yet another show to their growing summer concert schedule. The reunited duo will be one of the main headliners to perform at Ireland's 2014 Electric Picnic Festival.

Gigwise added that the other main headliners will be Back and Portishead. Both are listed ahead of Outkast on the official poster for the festival.

Other musicians that will be featured on the festival lineup include Lily Allen, Pet Shop Boys, Chic (featuring Nile Rodgers), London Grammar, and St. Vincent.

Billboard reports that the festival will be taking place on Aug. 29-31 at Stradbally Estate in County Laois, Ireland. This festival has been going on since 2004.

It was also announced recently that Scotland's RockNess festival would be cancelled this year. On the festival's Facebook page they explain the reason behind canceling this year and focusing on next year.

"Due to the addition of a number of events alongside the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games we’ve decided to take a year off. We’re using this break to make the event bigger and better than ever in 2015 so have an amazing summer and see you back at the Loch next year!"
