This weekend, our John Balfe is down in Stradbally to catch as many excellent performances as possible and tell you all about them via our dedicated Electric Picnic page. He'll also keep you informed with the latest news and updates direct from the festival ground via our Twitter page. While you're at it, why not check out John's top ten picks for the Picnic here.

Speaking of Twitter, our Alicia Coyle will also be tweeting direct from the festival, letting you know how things look from the perspective of a Picnic first-timer.

Stay glued to our Electric Picnic page for blogs and Caught Out photos throughout the weekend... reportedly ropey internet connections permitting, of course... Dara and Alicia have been beavering away, trying to upload photos from the past 24 hours in the press tent, but to little avail. Keep checking back!
