A TRALEE man has won the chance to play this year’s Electric Picnic and it’s all thanks to you.

Gary Keane, aka, Like A Fire, entered the 2FM ‘Play the Picnic’ competition with hundreds of other artists to try to earn a place on the Oxjam stage during the Festival which takes place from August 29-31.

He had made the shortlist of 30 and on Friday afternoon it was announced on the website that he had made the winning 10. The public accounted for 50 percent of the vote with the other 50 coming from judges.

“I’m absolutely ecstatic,” Gary told TraleeToday.ie on Friday afternoon. “I found out when a friend of mine sent me a message on Facebook congratulating me. I just want to thank everyone, including yourselves at TraleeToday.ie, for all the help in getting me there. All my friends, Facebook groups and websites like yourself gave it a great push. It’s amazing what can be done when people pull together,” he said.

Gary faces a further competition now to play the Cosby Stage which is one of the main stages at Electric Picnic. He is to travel to RTE to record the song he submitted for the competition and a public vote will decide if he makes the Cosby show.

Gary is recording under his own name at the moment but he will unveil a new band at the Electric Picnic called ‘White Boys’.

We’ll keep you posted on his progress.
