Huge queues lined Main Street Portlaoise as the first batch of Electric Picnic tickets for 2019 went on sale today.
Colgan Sports on Main Street Portlaoise and Colgan Sports in Tullamore released the first of the coveted tickets at 9am and we were there to get a glance of the crowds waiting excitedly for their passes into Ireland’s largest music and arts festival.
As we type, the queues are now gone up to Brown’s Fruit and Veg as people wait in line for the loyalty tickets.
Both stores released family camping tickets and weekend tickets for sale, but Sunday tickets will not go on sale yet.
