10 Epic Memories From Past Electric Picnics That’ll Make You Insanely Excited For This Year

James Fenton

With just three weeks to go until Electric Picnic 2017, people are starting to get pretty excited. 

This year sees the 14th edition of the Co. Laois festival and while headline acts such as The XX, Duran Duran and Elbow are set to entertain crowds on the main stage, we’re more excited about Electric Ireland, the official energy partner of Electric Picnic, bringing 90s nostalgia and slammin’ pop tunes to the Electric Ireland Throwback Stage.

The stage will see none other than favourites 5ive and S Club bring it all back, as well as a host of other acts throughout the weekend.

What better way to prepare for such a blast of nostalgia than partake in our own, of the Electric Picnic kind?
