Electric Picnic reschedules to end of September

Words: Dylan Murphy

The festival shared news that gives hope that the festivities will go ahead in Stradbally this year.

The Electric Picnic team have took to Twitter today to bring an update on the festival. Originally the festival was booked to take place from September 3-5 2021, but given the current situation they’ve rescheduled until 24-26 September to give it a better chance of going ahead.

It comes after the likes of Longitude were cancelled this summer.

Read their full statement below:

“We’re delighted to share the news that Electric Picnic 2021 is moving to the 24th – 26th September

16/06/21

Good afternoon everyone. 

We wanted to update you all on how Electric Picnic plans to move forward this year. Given the great progress the HSE is making on the Vaccine Rollout so far, and the recently announced target of having at least 70% of the country fully vaccinated by the end of July, we are still confident that the festival can take place this year. 

That being said, we feel we have a much better chance of that happening by moving the dates back a few weeks to September 24th-26th instead of the original dates of September 3rd-5th. 

We are as desperate as everyone else to get our industry back up and running, and if moving the festival further back in September helps that dream become a reality then we feel it’s the right decision to make. 

We also understand that this may not suit everyone, and if you cannot make it that weekend then you are entitled to a full refund. 

Everyone in our industry, and the entire country for that matter, needs some sort of hope that the end of this pandemic is in sight. We truly wish that Electric Picnic will be the light at the end of the tunnel and we can welcome you all to Stradbally this year.

Thank you so much for your continued patience and we will keep you updated as much as we can.”
