Tara Stewart set for a career high as she takes to the stage for Electric Picnic this weekend

"I've wanted to play this stage for so long!"

If Tara Stewart isn't a name you're already familiar with then it's time to take note. The DJ who has just landed a spot as a weekday presenter on RTÉ2FM, is now also set for a massive career high as she takes to the Casa BACARDÍ stage at Electric Picnic on Saturday.

"I've wanted to play that stage for so long - when people hear I'm playing Casa BACARDÍ, they're like 'woah', it's incredible, I'm so excited!"

Casa BACARDÍ is one of the biggest and most recognised stages at Electric Picnic, usually not far from the main stage and known for the large crowds it draws as the night gets later, this is certainly one to check out if you're heading to Stradbally this weekend.

Speaking about her love for DJing ahead of the festival, Tara added that playing EP was always a bucket list goal.

"It was really four or five years ago when I started DJing, I think. I just remember thinking I would love to play EP. Being a DJ is so much fun though, I love making people happy."

Noting that over the past five years she has had to make her own luck to get where she wants, Tara put herself out there by emailing PRs and working hard in order to get recognised and established in the music industry.

And now, she's reaping the rewards as she'll be playing a 1.5 hour set at 1:30pm on Saturday, August 31.

This weekend, the chances are you'll also see Tara before you hear her thanks to her incredible and unique style that always catches people's eyes.

"I wear what I want, I take inspiration from different things, Pinterest, Vogue, following more interesting fashion people and upcycling what I already have," Tara reveals.

Tara is also making a concious move to become more sustainable and aware of where her clothing comes from.

"I've learnt a lot about the fashion industry. I've become more educated on fast fashion and ethically aware of where our clothing comes from. I've always been big into charity shopping and now I've become a lot more creative with my style and reusing items in my wardrobe."

This weekend for instance, Tara is opting to wear a full vintage look on the Sunday of the festival as well as borrowing a piece from Irish designer Colin Horgan for the Saturday when she takes to the stage - we've no doubt she'll look incredible.
