Willow Sea & Guests, 21:30, Electric Picnic, Sunday

Huge congrats to Pourtraits for winning the King of the Mic rap battle in Dublin last week. Awesomely, he’ll be supporting Xzibit and B-Real in the Voodoo Lounge on September 25th. Pourtraits is playing the Earthship Stage at Electric Picnic on Sunday at 22:00 as part of Willow Sea & Guests.

If you’re at the Picnic, you should come check him out. He’s an amazing lyricist, and the kid can spit that shit like nobody’s business.

Also guests of Willow Sea are the folktacular New Pope, and the weirdly sexy Broken Hounds. It’s going to be brilliant.
