Early bird tickets for ‘09 Picnic
TICKETS for the Electric Picnic festival in 2009 will go on sale next week, organisers have announced.
Just weeks after the threeday extravaganza in Stradbally, Co Laois came to a close, planning is already under way for the follow-up.
POD Concerts and Aiken Promotions remain tightlipped about who they are targeting for next year's line-up but believe tickets will again sell out.
Performers at Electric Picnic 2008 included Sigur Ros, Goldfrapp, Franz ferdinand, George Clinton and the Sex Pistols.
A limited number, unspecified by the promoters, are being released on the Ticketmaster website on Friday, October 10, at a special “early bird” price of €199.
The price is the same as last year's “early bird” rate which was a reduction of €41 on the full price of €240.
Family rates are also available at €398, which admits two adults and up to four children under 12 years, with access to the designated family campsite. Next year's event takes place at Stradbally Hall on September 4, 5 and 6.
