Electric Picnic tickets for 2019 go on sale this Friday at 9am and organisers are urging picnickers to get their tickets in plenty of time to avoid disappointment as tickets for last year’s music and arts festival were snapped up in record time.

Electric Picnic returns to Stradbally from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September 2019. 

"And, the great news is that prices for this year’s Electric Picnic remain the same and once again we are offering the Loyalty Scheme tickets to our loyal followers as well as a three-stage instalment plan," say the promoters Festival Republic.

To be eligible for a discount, you will need to prove you’ve been before and in return you’ll get the discount code. If you have been to the festival three times or more a ticket will cost €165, if you've been once or twice a ticket will cost €185 and if you haven't been before it will cost €205.

Festival Republic say that for those who have purchased tickets from Ticketmaster in the past online and who opted in to future mailing you should receive a code direct from Ticketmaster. To automatically receive the loyalty code for future Electric Picnic events from Ticketmaster people must be signed up to receive marketing emails from Ticketmaster. 

If you don't automatically receive a discount code from Ticketmaster, you will need to follow the application process detailed HERE  ​You can also bring your proof of attendance into any Ticketmaster outlet listed HERE to purchase your discounted ticket.

To guarantee you get a discount code for Electric Picnic 2019, people should submit their code request by midnight Monday,  September 24.

Tickets are subject to availability. The loyalty scheme (and use of discount codes) will end at midnight Sunday, September 30, or in the event of a sell-out of the allocation, whichever comes first. A discount code or request for a discount code does not guarantee a ticket purchase and tickets are sold on a first come first serve basis

The festival line-up will be revealed early next year.
