Dundalk band Sonnets and Sisters have landed a prestigious slot on the Oxfam Ireland stage at this year's Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally, Co Laois.

The band were successful in their bid to become a finalist in 2fm’s Play The Picnic with Oxfam competition.

They have also been offered a slot at the festival on the Sunday night.

Earlier this summer RTÉ 2fm, in conjunction with Oxfam and Electric Picnic, put a call out to artists and bands across the country to compete for a coveted live set at the country’s biggest music festival.

Folk-pop group Sonnets and Sisters consist of Stephanie Winters (22), Anton Hande (25) and Saidhbhin Gorham (23) who all hail from Dundalk and Harry Stover (20) from Athboy, Co. Meath.
