Electric Picnic announce headline act replacing Lewis Capaldi

Electric Picnic have announced their new headline act, replacing Lewis Capaldi.

The Glaswegian cancelled all his upcoming shows, due to personal circumstances.

Releasing a statement, he wrote: “I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I’d hoped three weeks away would sort me out. But the truth is I’m still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s.”

“It became obvious that I need to spend so much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time.”

Now the event organisers have confirmed which performer will be taking Lewis’ spot, with Paolo Nutini now set to headline the festival.

Much like Lewis, Paolo also hails from Scotland, and is known for his tracks Candy, Iron Sky, Rewind, Last Request, and many more.

He is the ex-boyfriend of Irish presenter Laura Whitmore.

Also headlining the festival alongside Paolo are Billie Eilish, Fred Again, The Killers, and Niall Horan.

The Wolfe Tones, the Saw Doctors, Nell Mescal, Mimi Webb, Cian Ducrot, Lyra and Sello, to name just a few, will also be performing at EP this year.
