Electric Picnic organisers have issued a warning to concert goers to beware of fake tickets for the sold-out festival.

The popular Stradbally event sold out even quicker this year than last year, with all 40,000 tickets snapped up one month ahead of the event.

But weekend tickets for the festival are already being flogged for over €400 per ticket as optimistic punters try to make a profit from the pass, which originally sold for €229.50.

"With any sold-out concert, there's going to be a big demand there but there's nothing we can do with a ticket that hasn't been bought from an official source like Ticketmaster," said a festival spokeswoman.

"We warn people that under no circumstances should they buy them from an unofficial source as there's nothing we can do if they show up with bogus tickets."
