I can think of so many reasons why you need to go to Electric Picnic Festival, honestly, if you haven’t already been you need to go! Electric Picnic is literally one of the best festivals in Ireland.
Fancy bashing out one last Festival before the season is over? Go to Electric Picnic (EP), shishter you will not regret it. From the shabby chic Body & Soul area where you can dip dive into a holistic massage experience, hot yoga and even acupuncture, to the awesome electro tents where you can dance until sun rise, EP is bound to have something to fit your mood.
Every year the festival releases its tickets as soon as the festival is over and every year, for the past three years, it has sold out almost immediately, and the crazy thing is nobody knows the lineup until literally a few months before but, I promise you, you’re always guaranteed a good one. Last year they had the likes of Dua lipa, Kendrick Lamar, NERD, Ben Howard and Massive attack. And this year hosted the likes of Florence and the machine, Billie Eilish, The 1975, Jarvis Cocker and The Streets …and not to mention all the amazing DJ’s that play the Heineken stage, Ranking Woods and Berlinhaus; only a few hundred people gain access to this ‘secret location’ where only Berlin’s Berghain DJ’s are permitted to play o0o0o0o0o0ooh.
EP attracts all types of people and it is definitely a – dress to impress – type of festival. Many influencers get invited to the festival and if they don’t get invited they always get their hand on a ticket, it’s like the Coachella of Ireland…but better. So, if you’re one for fan girlying over influencers I guarantee you you’ll catch a few of them there.
All in all it is a great festival and it is getting more and more exclusive every year… I mean… early bird tickets have already sold out and it’s literally still a year away. So, if my bad writing hasn’t convinced you to go yet then take a look on the website www.electricpicnic.ie you’ll get a better vibe of what EP is all about. I also stole some pictures off the website. Enjoy. Peace.
