It’s that time of year again and the teddy bears’ countdown is well and truly on for the 10th birthday of Electric Picnic.

Now a firm favourite of music lovers in Laois and beyond, this year’s line up, although without the major players of other years, still has plenty to keep revellers smiling from Friday through to Sunday.

As well as the huge amount of musical talent taking to the Stradbally stages, the festival also has so much to offer with art, theatre, spoken word, food and more.

One of this year’s highlights will again be the Salty Dog, which already has confirmed - The Hot Sprockets, Ronan O’ Snodaigh, and some surprises! Body and Soul will be providing welcome respite for those who want to chill out in the magical surroundings and loose themselves under the majestic Stradbally trees. And according to EP’s Facebook page, the Rave in the Woods will also be returning for those who want to keep their feet dancing. Visit www.electricpicnic.ie for more.
