With Electric Picnic 2016 done and dusted, set your sights on 2017

Tickets for next year's festival go on sale this Friday

After a successful 13th Picnic in Stradbally Hall, promoters have announced tickets for 2017 will go on sale this Friday, September 9th at 9am and once again offering the ‘discount reward scheme’ as well as a three part instalment plan.

Last weekend saw 55,000 Picnickers enjoy everything Electric Picnic has to offer as the jewel in the Irish festival scene. We’re already looking forward to what 2017 will have in store already. 

“This year was easily my favourite Electric Picnic to date,” said festival director Melvin Benn. “We introduced some new areas to the site for 2016 which proved to be amazing along with implementing some changes from 2015 which were all a success. For 2017, the capacity will remain the same and I’m looking forward to what is in store already next year for both seasoned revellers and new”.

To be eligible for a discount, you will need to prove you’ve been before and in return you’ll get the discount code. The full discount is available to customers who have attended any three previous Picnics.
