Weekend camping tickets cost €281, Sunday Day tickets are priced at €106 while Early Entry Passes to set up in the campsite on Thursday night are priced at €39.05.

Early bird tickets sold out in September, with this Friday being the last chance for fans to secure tickets for next year.

A record-breaking crowd of 70,000 descended on the festival this September, with thousands already primed to attend in 2023.

After skipping two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, last year saw the weekend return and go bigger than ever – despite multiple weather warnings and heavy rain.

The headliners included Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala and Dermot Kennedy, while 2023 promises some of music’s biggest stars.

Billie Eilish last played the festival in 2019 and is now returning with multiple Grammy Awards and an Oscar under her belt as well as a coveted ‘Bond song’ from Daniel Craig’s last outing as 007.

Lewis Capaldi is primed to release his next album after a whirlwind few years at the top of the charts while his best pal, former One Direction star and Mullingar native Niall Horan is sure to be welcomed to Electric Picnic with open arms.

Rising stars Steve Lacey and Fred again.. have seen huge success this year and last.

With the help of TikTok Lacey has rocketed up the charts with his single Bad Habit and Fred again.. has performed to sell-out shows across Europe including in Dublin’s 3Arena.
