It was a girls day out for the Hewsons  as Ali and her two daughters Eve and Jordan jetted in to Ireland for Electric Picnic.

The glamorous trio went for an understated style as Ali opted for an olive green jacket, complementing her daughters similarly neutral ensembles.

They managed to stay under the radar, but independent.ie spotted them in the VIP area before moving on to the super exclusive artists area.

Down-to-earth Ali said she was enjoying her chips and enjoying the music, but preferred not to pose for photos.

The superstar family are said to have attended the sold-out gig without U2 frontman and patriarch Bono. 

Cupid's arrow has also hit Electric Picnic as Ireland's best known couples descend on Stradbally for this year's sold-out festival.

Today saw the always glamorous Lisa Murphy opting for a low-key all black look as she revelled in the exclusive VIP area with fiancé Gerald Kean.

Newly single Holly Carpenter was also spotted partying in suitably quirky attire, while celebrity Lisa Fitzpatrick was fashionable as expected as she enjoyed the atmosphere with her famous friends.
