Just as you’ve managed to get through that Electric Picnic fear, festival bosses go and tear down your week of hard work in a second by announcing that tickets for next year’s event will go on sale tomorrow.

It will take place from August 31 and September 2 and the first round of tickets go on sale this Friday 8 September at 9am from Ticketmaster.

The festival will continue to offer a Loyalty Scheme/discount code to their dedicated followers – all you need to do is prove that you have attended the festival before.

If you have been to the festival three times or more a ticket will cost €165, if you’ve been once or twice a ticket will cost €185 and if you haven’t been before it will cost €205.

To guarantee you get a discount code for Electric Picnic 2018, please submit your code request by 5pm Wednesday, October 25.

They also continue to offer a three-stage instalment plan.
