Final timetable announced for Electric Picnic

Final timetable announced for Electric Picnic

Electric Picnic organisers have released the final timetable for the arts and music festival, which takes place this weekend.

The new updated timetable covers seven stages in total over the three days of the event.

Already some revellers readying for Stradbally have been complaining about the traditional festival ‘clashes’, with organisers admitting that it’s hard to please everyone.

Opinion has also been divided by the announcement that The Cure will play a three-hour set which, is it thought, will be the longest ever in the event’s nine-year history.

The weather outlook is relatively positive for the weekend, with most forecasters predicting only occasional showers. Organisers have warned festivalgoers to be prepared for all forms of weather however, by bringing both sun block and waterproof clothing.

The Electric Picnic festival takes place from this Friday to Sunday at Stradbally Hall, Stradbally, Co Laois. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.
