Once again a "discount reward scheme" is being offered as well as a three-part instalment plan.

To be eligible for a discount, applicants will need to prove they've been before and in return they’ll get a discount code.

The full discount is available to customers who have attended any three previous Picnics.

For those who have purchased from Ticketmaster online in the past, they will receive a code direct from Ticketmaster. For everyone else or if you don’t automatically receive a discount code, three of one type of proof mentioned below or any combination from different years of proofs of purchase and/or attendance will be required.

The Electric Picnic code request form can be found here. To guarantee you get a discount code for Electric Picnic 2017, promoters ask that applicants submit a code request by 5pm Thursday 27, October 2016.

For those that have attended any two or less Picnics only one type of proof mentioned below will be required should you wish to request a code.

·         Bank statement showing debit for ticket (Security details etc. can be blanked out so just the name/address and Electric Picnic purchase show).

·         Photos of customer on site which indicate different year e.g. if two photos then they should have changed slightly in appearance, hair style, age and so forth.

·         Screen shots of Facebook or other social media showing messages or pictures supporting the claim and indicating the year.

·         Wristbands, ticket stubs, official merchandise or programmes from different years (must also show customer holding or wearing them and customers face must be visible to identify – random pictures of wristbands etc. will not be accepted).

·         Travel or local (to festival) accommodation receipt (dated).

Customers wishing to purchase from Ticketmaster outlets should bring along any of the above three forms of proof in order to avail of the discount.

Tickets for this offer are limited to two per person, per transaction, per household, per credit card, promoters say. Bookings over the limit will be cancelled. Weekend camping at the standard early bird price have a ticket limit of 6. To prevent touting Campervan tickets can only be purchased with an entry ticket. We reserve the right to cancel and refund any booking we think may be sold on for profit.

Festival Director, Melvin Benn said “This year was easily my favourite Electric Picnic to date. We introduced some new areas to the site for 2016 which proved to be amazing along with implementing some changes from 2015 which were all a success. For 2017, the capacity will remain the same and I’m looking forward to what is in store already next year for both seasoned revellers and new”.
