This year’s Electric Picnic completely sold out prior to revealing the acts that will perform. In its 13 year history Electric Picnic has never sold out ahead of the line-up release and so far in advance of the festival weekend.

For those of you lucky enough to get tickets, allow us to transport you from an Ordinary World to an extraordinary place filled with music, culture, laughter and magic that will be Electric Picnic 2017. From the mundane to the insane, from your house to Our House, the beautiful Stradbally Hall, on the stunning 600 acre estate, Ain’t Nobody not going to love this year’s Electric Picnic line up more than us – definitely the talk of the town!
