Per Laois County Council, the application for an event licence for this year’s Electric Picnic was lodged by promoters Festival Republic this afternoon. While the festival announced at the weekend that this year’s shindig was sold out (months in advance too, which is quite an achievement), they didn’t reveal the number of tickets sold. Going on the application, we know that the capacity sought for the Picnic is for 48,500 paying customers, with an additional 2,500 guests and children. A decision on the appliction for the licence will be made in the coming weeks
