Shane Gillen, who has performed for A listers including Kelsey Grammar and Denzel Washington, is going to add a touch of magic to the hotly anticipated Co Laois festival.

The renowned magician will be resident in his own tent for the three days, allowing fans to get up close and personal and see exactly how his tricks work.

The 'Magic Mush Room' tent will be located in a mystery location on the grounds of the Stradbally site, with a secret entrance that involves some detective work to gain entry.

Picnickers will be able to engage in games such as 'Fool the Magician' and cause some mischief by controlling a professional magician who will be roaming around the festival playing tricks on revellers.

Sligo native Shane is also scheduled to make an exclusive appearance for picnickers at 3Penthouse, Three’s house party away from home for the weekend. Alongside Shane’s show, 3Penthouse will play host to unique events including yoga, exclusive DJ sets and more to be announced, all accessed through Three’s unique rewards programme, 3Plus.
