With the list of forthcoming live shows growing by the day, live music promoters will be hoping that the current financial doom and gloom don’t stop people going out.

Promoters will especially be hoping that Irish music fans continue to exhibit their fondness for getting their hands on tickets months in advance.

“Early-bird tickets” for Electric Picnic 2009, to be held a week later than usual from September 4th to 6th, go on sale next Friday (October 10).

Tickets are pegged at €199, the same tariff as for last year’s festival, but this will doubtless rise when the full consignment of tickets goes on sale in 2009.
