What She Wears: Electric Picnic 2009

32, 000 festival goers made their way to Stradbally, County Laois for the 6th year of Irish boutique music festival,  Electric Picnic. It’s always a cool event—literally and figuratively—thanks to the interesting crowd that is drawn to our favourite festival.

This year the revellers took it up another notch, wearing fancy dress, wigs and generally using the weekend as an excuse to stand out from the crowd in the style stakes.

Pictured here centre are Isobel Dooley Kelly, Eimear Kelly and Claire Rigney, dancers from Galway who performed with Creole Kid. One of their previous performances includes a party for ex Man United goalie Peter Schmeichel.

We love the Topshop floral jumpsuit (left), the cut off denim shorts and cowboy hat (centre) and plaid shirt and shorts (right), all worn with fabulous big sunglasses.

Ryan Tubridy & friends

While we normally only report on female style, we couldn’t help but notice some stylish Irishmen at #ep09 as it’s known on Twitter.

A regular at Electric Picnic, Ryan Tubridy arrived on Saturday after his debut performance as presenter of The Late Late Show. He is joined here by other famous faces in TV, namely Channel 4’s newsreader Jon Snow, former TV3 Xposé presenter Lorraine Keane and RTE Primetime’s Mark Little.

Tubridy had some clothes in common with his mates – both he and Lorraine wore pink shirts while Jon and Ryan both wore blazers over their shirts.

They stopped for this photo during a welcome respite in the sunshine before the rain came down on Saturday and Sunday creating a mud bath for us all to muck about in. Thank goodness for wellingtons!

Claudine Palmer

Irish model married to Irish soccer ace Robbie Keane was present and showed off her model pins in black hot pants – if you have the legs for it, flaunt it we say! The rest of her ensemble was made up of a graphic T-shirt under a biker jacket. 

Claudine accessorised with a Chanel chain handbag and boho plait in her hair – very festival looking altogether.  Claudine didn’t have to rough it camping like the rest of us, she was lucky enough to stay with her Granny who lives on Stradbally main street!
