The line-up for Electric Picnic has finally been revealed and it offers some whopper treats...

The music and arts festival, which takes place from September 2-4 at Stradbally Hall, Co Laois, boasts headliners LCD Soundsystem, New Order, Super Furry Animals, Chemical Brothers, and Lana Del Ray.

Bagging NYC electro gods LCD Soundsystem is quite a coup for the festival as James Murphy only announced that the band were reforming in January.

They'll hit EP after their return to the festival circuit at Coachella in April.

The line-up also features HAIM, Todd Terje, Years & Years, Glass Animals, Wild Beasts, Animal Collective, Gavin James, Wolf alice, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats among others.


Day tickets for Sunday had already sold out before the line-up was even announced as did family weekend camping, standard campervan/caravan and family campervan/caravan tickets. 

Weekend camping tickets (€234.50) are still on sale but may not last long.  Last year quick-fingered festival fans had snapped up all tickets by June 20, almost three months before the event.

Ticket buyers can opt to avail of a new instalment plan which allows you to spread the cost of your ticket over the next three months.

Also returning to the festival this year are Salty Dog and Trailer Park and there will be a Silent Disco in the 'My Lovely Horse Paddock' as well as the final of Neil Hannon and Cathy Davey's search for a Father Ted 20th anniversary 'Song for Europe'.

Dress Well or Die Trying is a new area to pimp yourself out and if you dress up you get access to private parties and backstage on Trailer Park and Salty Dog.
