This is the 12th year of An Puball Gaeilge at Electric Picnic! An Puball Gaeilge – the Irish-language Tent – has been part of the festival’s programme of events every year since 2007, when renowned musician Rossa Ó Snodaigh of Kíla set up the Irish-language stage at the festival in conjunction with Raidió na Life. Many groups have come on board since and taken part in the Puball over the years, including Kíla, Seo Linn, Aindrias de Staic, Polca 4, The Bonny Men, Kneecap and many more besides.

An Puball Gaeilge is supported by Foras na Gaeilge and Glór na nGael.
