Electric Picnic tickets to go on sale

Tickets for the Electric Picnic festival in 2009 will go on sale next week, organisers said today.

Just weeks after the three-day extravaganza in Stradbally, Co Laois, came to a close planning is already under way for the follow-up.

POD Concerts and Aiken Promotions remain tight-lipped about who they are targeting for next year’s line-up but believe tickets will again sell out.

A limited number, unspecified by the promoters, are being released on the Ticketmaster website on Friday, October 10, at a special “early bird” price of €199.

The price is the same as last year’s “early bird” rate which was a reduction of €41 on the full price of €240.

Family rates are also available at €398, which admits two adults and up to four children under 12 years, with access to the designated family campsite.

Next year’s event takes place at Stradbally Hall on September 4, 5 and 6.
