Electric Picnic


End of summer and back to school and college but with the prospect of the Electric Picnic in early September in Stradbally, County Laois.


Almost about more than the music and probably the anti-Oxygen catering for thirtysomethings looking to relive their rock years, with kids in tow. Plenty to feast eyes, ears and belly with wait-for-it, healthy food, arty events as well as some music thrown in along the way from hip-hop to electronica, soul & funk to rock, dance to reggae and even a comedy tent.


Expect the unexpected with ad hoc performances, outdoor living art all set in a beautiful walled estate.


And if you just can’t face that tent, groundsheet or bunk in the van, nearby hotels include¬†The Heritage Golf & Spa
