All female comedy line-up to open Electric Picnic next summer

An all-female comedy line-up will open Electric Picnic next summer.

Organisers have announced a show that will be staged for 5,000 early entry campers the night before the festival opens.

Bosses hope it will "bring more gender balance to the festival", after they noticed a lack of female comedians on line-ups.

The line-up includes; Joanne Mc Nally MC, Aoife Dooley , Lisa Casey, Sharon Mannion, Aine Gallagher, Harriet Braine , Ashlee Bentley, Sahar Ali, Blaithin DeBurca, Aoife O'Connor, Christina McMahon, Orla O'Doherty Brown, Fiona Frawley and Grace Mulvey.
