A brand-new documentary 'A Piece of the Picnic' will premiere on RTÉ 2FM’s YouTube channel this Sunday, March 6. It tells the story of how a community of festival makers and musicians came together in the two year absence of Electric Picnic.

The documentary takes a trip down memory lane ahead of the return of music and arts this Summer.

It comes a week before the official line-up announcement for the festival, which takes place next Thursday, March 10.

With performances across an array of genres, featuring the very best Irish musicians, artists, comedians and more across some iconic Electric Picnic stages and installations, the film captures the unique essence of the festival through the eyes of those who contributed not only to this project itself, but who are pivotal year upon year in creating the magic at Stradbally Hall.

Electric Picnic hasn't taken place since September 2019 due to the pandemic. The four-day event returns this year, running from Thursday, September 1 to Sunday, September 4.

This year will see a 70,000 daily capacity and includes new features 'Fishtown', and the 'Mind and Body' stage. The latter is replacing the Body & Soul area which pulled out in 2019. However, it still runs its own standalone festival, revealing a mysterious line-up announcement this week.

'A Piece of the Picnic' was funded by the government Live Performance Support Scheme.

Electric Picnic 2022 tickets go on sale at 11am on Friday March 11.
