Electric Picnic stage times: Electric Arena, Cosby, Little Big, Theatre of Food and more

There's more to the picnic than the main stage

UFOs and the industrial era in the middle of the woods, these are just a few of the things to look out for this weekend at Electric Picnic. Arts Editor Laurence Mackin takes us around this year's festival site. Video: Kathleen Harris

The Ticket will be there for the get in, the get up and the get down all weekend in Stradbally. As the Electric Picnic’s official media partner, all this week we’ve been giving you the first look at the stage times. Tomorrow we’ll have the times for Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow, Comedy Tent, Salty Dog, Trailer Park, Global Green, Trenchtown and more.

From Friday we’ll be onsite at Stradbally proper, with our live blog for all your get-in news, traffic and weather updates, and those essential first-night reviews. We’ll have daily editions of The Ticket on-site on Saturday and Sunday, as well as online video, blog, news and feature content all weekend.

And if you need a little break from the musical affairs, we’ll have a full programme of talks at the expanded Irish Times Ticket tent in the Mindfield section. There will be discussions with the best arts and sports writers, panels with experts in film and TV, and a look at the state of our 100-year-old nation.
