If the organisers of Electric Picnic had full control over the weather they couldn’t have picked a better day for the Saturday of this year’s festival.
The sun split the rocks in Stradbally Hall and there was a big demand on sun cream as thousands of concert-goers continued to enjoy the latest entertainment from the 15th hosting of the festival.
Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was out and about sampling the atmosphere. And she captured hundreds of images of people from Laois and far beyond.
Among those we came across were Laois footballers Gary Walsh, Alan Farrell and the Begley brothers Paul and Colm Begley.
We also bumped into JJ Tynan from The Heath, one of the leading men in the Portlaoise Musical Society, who was enjoying the festivities with friends and family.
David Walsh-Kemmis, owner of the local Ballykilcavan Brewery, with his family and Kevin Scully, owner of the Merry Mill, organic oats producer from Vicarstown.
We met some of the Castletown crew, some of the Mountrath gang – and people of all ages from around the county.
Check out our incredible selection of images below. The entertainment continues on Sunday.
