We all know that the weather can make or break your festival experience - especially in Ireland.

The good news if you're heading to Electric Picnic this weekend is that the long-range weather forecast for the weekend is looking reasonably decent for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

According to Accuweather- the site that's usually on the ball with the forecast, in our experience - it's a mixture of clouds and sunshine, and perhaps a few showers on Sunday.

In other words, the sun is probably not going to be splitting the stones, but it's unlikely that we're going to be washed out of it in a tidal monsoon, either. 

Of course, long-range forecasts are never 100% accurate and this might all change later in the week. In any case, don't go leaving the raincoats at home. God, no. Has your mammy taught you nothing?
