Electric Picnic plans to move forward this year. Given the great progress the HSE is making on the vaccine rollout so far, and the recently announced target of having at least 70% of the country fully vaccinated by the end of July. Electric Picnic is still confident that the festival can take place this year.
Just to be sure, Electric Picnic has decided on moving the dates back a few weeks to September 24th-26th instead of the original dates of September 3rd-5th.
Electric Picnic understands that this may not suit everyone. Festival-goers that bought tickets and now cannot attend will get a full refund.
The lineup for Electric Picnic this year hasn’t been fully been released yet. A few of the headline acts confirmed so far are Snow Patrol, Chemical Brothers, Rage Against the Machine, Lewis Capaldi and Skepta. For a full list of the confirmed acts so far click here.
