The Electric Picnic

I was asked to take part in a debate about comics and cartooning at this years Electric Picnic.
Hosting, was the fab BP Fallon and on the panel with me were cartoonist Tom Mathews and New York musician and comic artist Jeff Lewis. Paddy Cahill's superb short film about Tom was screened first and then the show got going. It was a bit of fun but we were competing with Orbital on the main stage so the posse weren't needed to escort us out of the tent when it was finished.
The following day, I brought along the kids to have a look around the site. Didn't catch too much music but we got a good flavour of the event in between riding on the carousel, searching for ice-cream and going on the ferris wheel
