Electric Picnic extends another warm invitation to all lovers of music, art, culture and general frivolity to our annual little get-together in Stradbally, Co Laois on 3rd, 4th & 5th September. A tantalizing world to entice and enthrall you, tickle and tease you. Now in their seventh year the ship’s sails are fully hoisted and “the journey we annually embark on is becoming more of a home-coming than a new exploration, although taking unknown and adventurous paths along the way is compulsory. How else would we discover the treasures and riches we will be offering to stimulate the senses. All six.”
