The competition is now closed.

Please join us for the live final and Father Ted Experience, Sunday 4th September at 1.30pm

To enter

  1. Upload your home produced video to YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook. (please make sure that the link can be viewed publicly). It doesn’t need to be high tech, a video recorded on a smartphone will do.
  2. Visit to apply by the closing deadline of 7pm on the 19th August 2016.
  3. Applicants will be informed the week of 22nd August 2016 whether or not they are through to the live final. Live finalists will receive weekend tickets to the Electric Picnic.
  4. The judges are not looking for a new rendition of 'My Lovely Horse' but instead an original - or badly plagiarised – comedy number, with a performance bearing the hallmarks of a tight budget!
  5. Though there is no entry fee, please take a moment to help My Lovely Horse Rescue by choosing to donate €10 (you will presented with the special donate button once you have submitted your song). The judges would be very grateful and the horses so happy 🐎 😉 .
  6. Please ensure you have read and agree to the competition Terms and Conditions as well as the Competition Criteria.

The judges will then select up to 15 songs for the live final on Sunday 4 September at Electric Picnic 2016, in My Lovely Ranch, Trailer Park.
