3. Electric Picnic – Stradbally, Ireland

“It’s usually a young congregation and this year’s line-up will exasperate matters, meaning welly-booted rock chicks and their skinny-jeaned admirers will likely dominate. There are tents for both comedy and spoken word gigs, theatre and circus performances and loads, loads more.” – ( Timeout )
