Tickets for the 2018 Electric Picnic are going on sale soon

Not much time to spare to splash out on next year's Electric Picnic tickets

With the excitement of last weekend's Electric Picnic still buzzing throughout county Longford and the rest of the country, it's already time to look towards next year's festival.

Several Longford bands performed last week in Stradbally and received spectacular feedback, while gathering plenty more fans in the process.

State Lights, which comprises three Dublin lads and one Longford man, Joe Regan from Granard, performed twice during the course of the weekend.

Drumlish band, Cronin were also found on stage over the weekend, with huge crowds turning out to listen to the very popular band.

Electric Picnic returns to Stradbally, Co. Laois from Friday August 30 to Sunday September 1, 2019 and tickets are currently on sale on Ticketmaster. Organisers are urging picnickers to get their tickets in plenty of time to avoid disappointment as tickets for last year’s music and arts festival were snapped up in record time.
