Electric Picnic 2017 is barely over - but demand for next year's festival is so high that family camping tickets are already sold out.
Tickets for the three day event next September went on sale at 9am this morning and the family camping, family campervan and campervan tickets are already gone.
However, weekend tickets for Electric Picnic 2018 are still available for revellers and Sunday tickets will become available for purchase next year.
As usual, loyal picknickers have been offered discounts as a reward for their previous attendance - the discount code will be given as soon as proof of attendance is shown.
The full discount is available to those who have been at three or more Electric Picnic events previously. All pre
The loyalty scheme - which can be accessed here - ends on Tuesday October 31 at 5pm or in the event of a sell-out, whichever comes first.
Those who have purchased from Ticketmaster online in the past will receive a code direct from Ticketmaster. Otherwise proof of previous attendance includes:
• Bank statement showing debit for ticket
• Photos of customer on site which indicate different year
• Screen shots of Facebook or other social media showing messages or pictures supporting the claim and indicating the year.
• Wristbands, ticket stubs, official merchandise or programmes from different years
• Travel or local (to festival) accommodation receipt (dated).
Customers wishing to purchase from Ticketmaster outlets should bring along any of the above three forms of proof in order to avail of the discount - and tickets for this offer are limited to two per person, per transaction, per household, per credit card.
Instalment plans are available online for all weekend camping ticket prices to any customer wishing to take advantage of a payment plan.

Electric Picnic 2017 is almost upon us, with Duran Duran, The xx and A Tribe Called Quest among the big names headlining the Stradbally event this weekend. Of course, any music festival - even one as self-consciously quirky and cuddly as this - requires preparation.
The sun finally came out for the third and final day of Electric Picnic. Sun cream, sunglasses, sunburn and sore heads were on display in Stradbally as temperatures reached 23 degrees. Yesterday we complained about the cold and today it was “too hot.”
