Organisers of Electric Picnic have confirmed that the 2021 festival is officially CANCELLED.
In a statement they confirmed the news moments ago.
They said: “We wanted to update you all on the most recent news we have regarding Electric Picnic 2021.
“As many of you are aware, we asked Laois County Council to reverse the decision on EP being cancelled this year.
“Unfortunately, they have not yet done so and we now run out of time. Regrettably, we have no other choice but to cancel this year’s edition.
“We would not be able to do the festival justice this close to show day, and it would be unfair to ask ticket holders who have stood by us throughout this pandemic to come to EP and not get the full experience that they are used to and deserve.”
They also provided an update on what people can do with their tickets.
They said: “We will be offering all ticket holders an option of a full refund, including booking fees, please contact Ticketmaster directly and they will process your refund as soon as possible.
“Please contact them within the next 30 days.
“If you prefer, you can retain your ticket and carry it over to next year. If you choose this option instead of a refund, you do not need to do anything, just hold onto your ticket.
“For more information on this please email email@example.com and we will do all we can to assist you.
“We look forward to seeing you all in Stradbally next year. The 2022 edition will revert back to its original weekend – September 2 to 4 2022.”
