The final tickets for Electric Picnic 2023 go on sale this morning – and another big act has been added.

Organisers have confirmed that American band The Killers will headline the event on the Saturday night.

They previously rocked the festival in 2012 and will return 11 years later.

Their inclusion bolsters what already looks like a very exciting line up.

Billie Eilish, Niall Horan, Lewis Capaldi, Jamie XX, Rick Astley, Tom Odell, Fred Again are some of the new acts that have been announced for Electric Picnic for next year.

The last remaining tickets for next year’s Electric Picnic festival will go on sale at 10am on Friday December 9.

The first 10 acts were announced on Monday with the remaining line-up to be revealed in the New Year.

As well as those announced above – Steve Lacy, IDLES and Amyl & The Sniffers have also been included.

Tickets originally went on sale for early bird punters in September and sold out quickly.

This year the festival returned to Stradbally and welcomed 70,000 music fans hungry to experience Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival.

Picnickers enjoyed a redesigned site layout, brand new areas such as The Theatre, Fishtown and of course all the festival favourites like Mindfield, Salty Dog and Trailer Park.

Tickets for Electric Picnic 2023 are priced at €281 for Weekend Camping, Sunday Day tickets are €106 and Early Entry Passes for Thursday night are priced at €39.05.

All ticket prices include booking fee.
