It has been a summer of nostalgia but Electric Ireland have been ahead of that game for a number of years via their ‘Throwback’ stage at Electric Picnic.

This year is the 20th anniversary of B*witched topping the charts with C’est la Vie so what better reason than to have them headline the stage in 2018.

They will be following in the footsteps of Bananarama, Bonnie Tyler and the Vengaboys and will provide plenty for older fans to reminisce over.

The band came back together for a TV documentary in 2012 but had not played live before that since their break up in 2002.

With a back catalogue of eight Top 20 hits across Ireland and the UK they were a big deal back in the late 1990’s and could be so again.

“We are so excited to headline Electric Ireland’s Throwback Stage at Electric Picnic,” said a statement from the band.

“It’s always brilliant to come back to Ireland and play to a home crowd. We are really looking forward to breaking out the double denim and having the absolute craic.”

“Rain or shine, it’s going to be an amazing day, and there are more great acts to be announced.”
