Electric Picnic is set to go ahead this year, as today’s announcement confirms that the three-day boutique arts and music festival will take place in Stradbally Estate once again this year. The event is the 10th anniversary of the festival and there is three great bands to headline it too, as Bjork, Fatboy Slim and Arctic Monkeys have been confirmed.
Electric Picnic is more than just a music festival, it comprises of many different areas that are curated in broad fashion. Festival regulars will know of the activities that take place in areas like Salty Dog, Body and Soul and Trenchdown.
Ticket prices are different from last year though, as the tenth birthday celebrations come with a special offer to those who have been before. A weekend ticket will cost you €149.50 upwards depending on how many Electric Picnic’s you have been to before. On sale from next Saturday morning, the reduction has received a welcome response from loyal regulars of Electric Picnic. Sunday tickets will be the same price as last year, as they will cost €85.
To prove you have been before, an email to firstname.lastname@example.org will answer your questions, as various methods of proof can be used including Ticketmaster records of previous festival goers. This discount period will be available until May 27th.
Regular festival areas such as Mindfield, Spoken Word and Body and Soul will be back this year too. Not to mention a Comedy tent as well.
