AS Ireland's biggest festival, it's inevitable that rumours are going to be rife when it comes to the lineup.

And 2014 is no exception.

The rumoured lineup for Electric Picnic was today published as fact, however a spokesperson for the festival told Independent.ie that the acts performing at Stradbally will no be revealed just yet.

The spokesperson explained: "It's not true. It was a mocked up lineup - presumably by some kid in his bedroom, the artwork isn't even remotely similar.

"This piece of artwork started doing the rounds on Tuesday night and appeared as fact today.

"The artwork changes every year and you can see this uses the same template as last year. It's  justmade up."

Electric Picnic is Ireland's biggest festival, with an average of 30,000 festival goers attending every year.

The festival will be launched in style next Wednesday and the first number of acts performing will be revealed then.
