Sure there might be a few lads in need of it with this fodder crisis!
Money, money, money
As the Electric Picnic gets more and more popular – all of our summer funds are being spent on tickets… and chunky chips
Just goes to show how much of a difference the line up to festivals make , the week before the EP last year you could’ve got yourself 10 tickets at face value , 2 weeks away and tickets are almost impossible to get ?

The craic in the campsite
Electric picnic line up is savage. Can’t wait to miss most of the acts I want to see because there’s an unreal sing song in the campsite

What will the weather be like?!?!?!
Trying to put EP outfits together that accommodate rain, wind, heat stroke, frost bite and constant humidity all in one is fun little task

Let Laois not be forgotten
The Electric Picnic also serves as a timely reminder that Laois is a county that we should all be proud of.
General reminder that EP is in Laois. Laois is relevant and not a forgotten county. Thanks, bye.

… But that there is more to Laois than just a three-day music festival.
“Where are you from?”
“Where in Ireland?”
“Are Laois and Portlaoise two separate counties?”
“So where are you from”
