The First Acts Have Been Announced For Electric Picnic 2016
Only one round of acts released and we already want to go!
Electric Picnic returns once again this year to Stradbally, Co. Laois from 2nd - 4th September 2016.
LCD Soundsystem, Chemical Brothers, Lana del Rey and New Order are among the first acts to be announced for the annual festival.
Other acts appearing are sister group HAIM, Super Furry Animals, Years & Years, Todd Terje, Gavin James and BRITS Critic's Choice Winner Jack Garratt.
Sunday day tickets sold out before any acts were announced so if you're intending to go I'd move fairly lively! Other sold out tickets are family weekend camping, standard campervan/caravan and family campervan/caravan tickets. You can get your hands on tickets right here.
Here are the highlights from the 2015 festival to get you in the mood.
