One of Ireland's most beloved bands of all time have been named in the lineup for this summer's Electric Picnic. The music festival in Stradbally has become a real part of Irish culture since it began in 2004.

Three days of drink, music, craic and more often than not, wet weather, but it certainly never dampens any of the public's time in Laois.

On Friday afternoon, Electric Picnic released the full lineup for this year's event, and it's safe to say, it's certainly got the people excited.

Billie Eilish and Niall Horan have been named to headline on Friday night, with DJ Fred Again and Lewis Capaldi set to perform on the Saturday. The final day of Electric Picnic will host The Killers, but it's the inclusion of a certain Irish band which has got many people on social media talking.

The Wolfe Tones will take to the stage during the three-day festival and will likely gather huge crowds no matter the time they're given on stage.

Twitter reacts to The Wolfe Tones at Electric Picnic

Over the past few months, we've seen some controversy around some of the band's songs and in particular, Celtic Symphony. The Ireland Women's National Team found themselves in trouble after videos emerged of them singing the song after their World Cup playoff win against Scotland last autumn.


Despite this, it would be hard to see this having any impact on the thousands of Irish people who are set to flood to Laois at the end of the summer.

Here's some of the best tweets after the Electric Picnic lineup was named, with festival goers certainly excited over The Wolfe Tones' inclusion.

Of course there was a sector of Twitter who were immediately nervous for the outrage the inevitable viral videos would inspire.

Electric Picnic lineups more often than not cause some debate on social media over the quality of acts on show, but this year, it seems to have received more positive feedback than negative when it comes to the announced lineup.
