Electric Picnic 2015
The first raft of runners and riders for this year’s soiree
Here we go with the first major list of acts playing the Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co Laois on September 4, 5 and 6.
Florence & The Machine
Manic Street Preachers
Belle & Sebastian
The War On Drugs
My Morning Jacket
Tickets: three options if you want a weekend ticket: (1) €154.50 if you can prove you’ve been to three or more Electric Picnics, (2) €174.50 if you can prove you’ve been to the Electric Picnic once or twice before (both tickets only available until March 8th) or (3) €194.50 if you haven’t been before. A Sunday ticket will cost you €90, while all campervan, family weekend and family campervan tickets are already sold out. All ticket prices are plus Ticketmaster’s fun-fun-fun taxes and charges.
So, folks, what do you reckon? How long is it going to take to sell-out with that line-up and the usual array of sideshows, carousels, attractions and girls in Indian head-dresses they bought the week before in Penneys? Are we still in love with the Picnic or has the bubble burst? Will they flog 47,000 tickets before next Monday? Over to you
