Weather Prediction For Electric Picnic This Weekend


Coming back with a bang this weekend, Electric Picnic is to return for this first time in two years, with tens of thousands of revellers descending upon Stradbally.

The festival will be making a return this weekend, having been cancelled for 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Tickets for the show were even sold out in 30 minutes.

However, the bad news for music fans is that they may have to prepare for a total wash out in Stradbally over the weekend.

Despite a dry start to the weekend, fans may prepare themselves for a very high chance of rain as the weekend continues. Bring your wellies and ran gear in short!
