The build-up to Electric Picnic usually begins straight away after the previous year’s edition. One of the most highly anticipated weekends of the year, Ireland’s largest festival takes place in Stradbally, Co.Laois this weekend with an estimated 55,000 attendees. The festival hosts some of the biggest international names in the music industry across all genres as well as an array of Irish talent.
