All tickets to Electric Picnic have sold out before any acts were announced.

Tickets for Electric Picnic Music and Arts festival went on sale today through Ticketmaster at 9am.

By 9.05am all Sunday day tickets had sold out and by 11am all tickets to the 55,000-capacity event had sold out.

In recent years, tickets have sold out by mid-June.

Touts have cashed in on the demand for tickets by selling them on secondary ticketing site Seatwave, a Ticketmaster-owned company.

Weekend camping tickets which had originally been priced between €160 and €200 are now appearing on Seatwave for as much as €600.
