The last big festival of the year takes place this weekend in Stradbally Hall, Co Laois, as Electric Picnic takes place from the 4-6 September 2015. There are plenty of things to consider before making the trek down, like stage times, getting there, and of course what to bring or even who to bring if you are lucky to have a spare tickets for sale. So in order to make your plans a little easier, RobMoro has scowered the web to find the best and reliable bit of advice to help you enjoy the weekend…oh and there is a must see list too if you don’t know who to see.
First up are the travel arrangements, which there are plenty to choose from such as train, bike, bus, and a car if your mates are car pooling down to Stradbally. Buses are the most popular, so here are the options and the link to all the times and ways to get there are HERE!

Ah yea, the most important part many would say, as you will need to plan getting around to the numerous stages located just about everywhere and what time your preferable acts are on.
Luckily for those waiting for the “exclusives” to be made into a handy once off document, the cool cats over at TXFM Dublin have kindly put together a fairly straight forward list of stages and times.
