Electric Picnic

The Electric Picnic Festival takes place in Stradbally C.O Laois this weekend. Acts include the legendary Brian Wilson as well as the Flaming Lips, Madness, Bell X1 and hundreds more acts.

There are rumours that this may be the last year of Ireland’s favourite boutique festival. The event caters for thirty two and a half thousand fans with tickets believed to be getting close to sold out. It is a three day event with music beginning Friday evening and ending Sunday night.

Camping facilities are available as well as a small number of campervans. If you are arriving into Dublin then it should take about an hour and a half to reach the concert by road. You may wish to consider a car hire for the weekend with prices beginning at a measly £40.06. Buses are available at twenty eight euro per person so as you can see hiring a car actually works out to be really good value.

Hopefully the weather won’t be too bad but this is Ireland so prepare well and pack the wellies and raincoats.
