Wolff and Frankenstein Bolts shortlisted for contest
COUNTY Wexford musicians Frankenstein Bolts and WOLFF are among 30 artists and bands shortlisted in 2fm's Play The Picnic with Oxfam competition and are now in with a chance of playing at Electric Picnic.
They are solo artist Johnny Stewart (27) from Rosslare Strand aka WOLFF, a singer who blends traditional blues with trashy garage rock riffs and in-your-face vocals, and dream-pop/folktronica duo Frankenstein Bolts, which compromises musicians Justin Cullen (36) and Dan Comerford (28) from Wexford Town and Rosslare Harbour.
Frankenstein Bolts and WOLFF are now part of a public text-to-vote to decide if they will be among the 10 acts to play Oxfam Ireland's Oxjam Stage at this year's Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally Estate, County Laois, from September 2 to 4.
The two are calling on the people of Wexford to vote for them in the final round of the competition. Each text vote costs €2 and voters are entered into a prize draw to win one of two pairs of weekend camping tickets to the now sold-out Electric Picnic. The ten finalists will be announced live on air on 2fm's The Tracy Clifford show on Friday, July 29.
Oxfam will receive a minimum of €1.63 from each text. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY. Helpline: 076 6805278. Voters must be 18 or over. For more visit, http://2fm.rte.ie/playthepicnic or www.oxfamireland.org/playthepicnic
