Bonnie Tyler will be returning to Electric Picnic later this month after her stellar performance back in 2014.

The 80s icon will be headlining the Electric Ireland Throwback Stage at the festival which kicks off at Stradbally Hall on Friday, August 30.

Acts set to perform on the main stage over the weekend include Hozier, The 1975, The Strokes and Florence and the Machine.

The Throwback Stage has seen performances from the likes of 5ive, The Vengaboys and B*Witched in the past and this year it’s set to be a must-visit for 80s music fans once again.

Bonnie will be joining the line-up along with none other than Mr. Motivator as well as Cork comedy duo The Lords of Strut.

Bonnie Tyler said, "They don't call it the Electric Ireland Throwback Stage for nothing. After an epic show in 2014 they're bringing me back!

"I'm ‘between the earth and the stars’ with excitement to return to Electric Picnic this year. Irish people have always been among my favourite crowds and I’m sure the Electric Ireland Throwback Stage is going to be no different.

"Being the queen of the power ballad, I’m looking forward to bringing stacks of energy to Stradbally.”
