Quiz: Can you match the Electric Picnic headliner to the year?

Let’s hope your memory of past EPs isn’t too hazy.

AT LONG, LONG last, we finally have our Electric Picnic line-up for 2024. 

We won’t be telling you who’s headlining for fear of spoiling the quiz, but if you’re not interested in testing yourself (coward), you can check out the full list of this year’s acts here.

Before we get into it: a few rules. All an act needs to qualify as a ‘headliner’ is for their name to be written in the big font at the top of the poster, above all the other acts in the little font. Deal? Great. Enjoy the quiz.
