It’s over. It’s all over. It really is. All over – bar your shouting.

You’ll find ALL the reviews from Lauren Murphy, Una Mullally, Shane Hegarty and myself from the weekend’s gigs here. These include the reviews which featured in the special version of The Ticket published on Saturday and Sunday in Stradbally and produced by all of the above plus John Lane, Eoin Bannon, Gary Quinn and photographer Dave Meehan in a shed in a field. You’ll find our news reports, features and colour pieces here as well. There is also a pointyheaded piece to come from me about the weekend, but that will be tomorrow at the earliest. C’mon, give a guy a break.

So, over to you. The floor is yours and you know what is required. Your views of Electric Picnic 2012: the good, the bad and the downright ugly. I’ll also add any post-Picnic gig announcements below as they’re made.

Here’s one of the acts of the weekend in action: it’s LAPD AKA the mighty combination of Liam O’Flynn, Andy Irvine, Paddy Glackin and Donal Lunny playing on the Body & Soul stage on Sunday evening.

GIG UPDATES: Ed Sheeran plays Dublin’s O2 on January 11 (tickets €35 plus TM 99s), Glen Hansard is doing two pre-Christmas shows at Belfast’s Ulster Hall (December 16, tickets £24.50 and £27.50 plus TM Ulster Fry) and Dublin’s Vicar Street (December 18, tickets €30 plus TM bells and whistles) and Bell X1, one of the acts a lot of people are hurrahing about after their show in Stradbally, go on a lengthy acoustic tour from October through to December (full details here). Also, Alabama Shakes play Dublin’s Olympia on November 11 and tickets are €25 each (plus 50 Shades Of Ticketmaster).
