The last hurrah of the Irish summer festival season kicks off this weekend in a big field in Co. Laois, where the COMPLETELY SOLD OUT 15th edition of Electric Picnic will take place.

If you're Stradbally-bound, you're no doubt in full planning mode (or perhaps you're reading this while frantically stuffing babywipes and cereal bars into a bag on Friday afternoon. That's okay, too.)

In any case, you'll need to plan how to spend your weekend to some extent, which is where the info below will come in handy.

You'll find everything from the weather report to stage times to site maps below, so get cracking - and have fun!

WEATHER

It's not looking the best, but not the worst, either. It may not be the sunniest weekend you've ever spent at a festival, but no torrential downpours are forecast, either.
