Rage Against The Machine to headline EP20!

11th February 2020
Electric Picnic are delighted to announce that Californian rockers Rage Against the Machine will take the stage at the festival this year as part of the band’s first world tour after a nine-year hiatus.

Made up of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk, the band first formed in 1991. Their song “Killing in the Name” released in 1992, became a political anthem against police brutality and institutional racism, and in turn, the rockers’ signature song.

They first performed in Ireland in the Tivoli Theatre in 1993 and were last here in 2010, when they played the then O2 Arena. Known for their incredible live performances, Rage Against the Machine will bring their prodigious energy back to Ireland for Electric Picnic on September 4th .
