As the announcements for stages at Electric Picnic come thick and fast, the organisers have announced that the festival will move to two weeks earlier in 2024.
Electric Picnic typically takes place in the first weekend of September, or at very least, the very end of August.
As part of the announcement of the loyalty programme which enables festival attendees to avail of discounts for attending year on year, EP has announced that the festival next year will take place from August 16th to 18th, moving back deeper into August for the first time.
Perhaps the reasoning is to do with competition, as Coldplay’s 2024 concerts in Croke Park are due to take place next August 29th to September 1st. Maybe it’s an attempt to move the festival to a slightly warmer weekend, or maybe it suits the demographic more. Maybe it’s one or all of these things. Either way, it’s the first time Electric Picnic has moved into August properly, as it celebrates 20 years next year.
