Unvaccinated people will not be allowed into this year’s Electric Picnic, if it goes ahead

It's due to take place in Stradbally from September 24

Electric Picnic organisers say unvaccinated people will not be allowed into this September’s festival if it goes ahead.

In a letter to the government they say no restrictions will be placed on fully vaccinated ticket holders while those with one dose will have to undergo Covid-19 testing.

The event is set to roll out in Stradbally, Co Laois from September 24 to 26 (details here).

The Minister for Culture and Arts Catherine Martin says she’s committed to the full return of all live entertainment at the earliest possible date.

Minister Martin says she’s working with Cabinet to provide a reopening plan as soon as possible.
