FestiHut, cosy yurts, squrts and tardis tipis.

These are just some of the ready made alternatives to the campsites at next year's Electric Picnic in Stradbally Co Laois.

Pink Moon Camping say they will give you a "calm and relaxed sanctuary to unwind". The festival organisers say their pre-erected tented village will have 24-hour security, serviced and maintained toilets & showers, 'pamper room' and cafe. 

Staying with ​FestiHut Ireland allows you to enjoy the festival in the comfort of a chalet-style FestiHut on the camping grounds. Electric Picnic adds that there is no need for camping gear and tents so you'll be able to sleep in comfortable, dry and secure space at the end of the festival day.

Hearthworks are offering their 'complete range' of boutique festival accommodation, with fresh new furnishings and more choice than ever. Their "stunning tipis and cosy yurts" are on offer. 

PodPads have 7 different styles of accommodation while Cloudhouse are offering "squrts, baby yurts", 12 foot diameter yurts and new luxury 14 foot yurts and 4 m diameter bell tents.

Silk Road Tents Boutique Camping say they offer "bell tents, tipis, tardis tipis and yurts" for festival camping. 

Next year's festival runs from September 1-3.
