Back in ye olde days, these things used to fall off the back of a lorry trundling through downtown Dublin 3 but, thankfully for the good people of said neighbourhood, those days are over. You’ll find the times for the runners and riders on the various stages here and here (and a map of the site here). You’ll also find more Electric Picnic coverage over there too to help you countdown the hours between now and Friday, including Nialler9′s interview with the man who put that site together, Pearse Doherty. More pointyheaded Electric Picnic posts to come as we muse on the meaning (and profit) of it all. Meanwhile, because there is life outside a field in Co Laois, there’s hurling over here for the connoisseurs.
