Exclusive: Electric Picnic 2015 main stage times

Blur headline Saturday; Underworld and Grace Jones get a Friday feeling; and you’ll have to stick around until Sunday to catch FloMac

For the first time in its 11-year history, the Electric Picnic will have more than 50,000 people on site at Stradbally, Co Laois. We have a tour of the site before it opens on Friday morning.

 

Here’s the first batch of Electric Picnic stage times for Main Stage, Body & Soul and Rankin Woods, exclusive to The Irish Times. Saturday night is already looking like an absolute belter, and you’ll find us propping up the Body and Soul stage for Shamir come 3am.

On Wednesday, we’ll have the full line-ups for every stage and act, exclusively on irishtimes.com/culture
