Stradbally, Co Laois, Ireland
Anarchy, funk, nostalgia, surrealism….just another day at the Electric Picnic.
As the evenings get longer, the cogs of Ireland’s acclaimed music and arts festival are turning once more and details are unfolding of what to expect on the last weekend in August when the rock‘n’roll circus descends on Stradbally village.
Electric Picnic has established itself as a truly unique Irish festival, set amid the rolling lawns of Stradbally Hall, Co Laois, a beautiful 600 acre estate just 50 mins from Dublin.
The festival will maintain the the same capacity this year and will feature the usual array of fine music, theatre, comedy, holistic health, art....plus many new elements.
Campsite opens Friday 29th August 2008 at 9am. There will be no access permitted before then.
First band on stage at approx. 4pm with various elements of the festival will kick-in throughout the course of the day.
Event finishes midnight Sunday 31st Aug 2008 with campsite closing at noon Mon 1st Sept 2008.
