Already in the mood for festival season? Tickets are already on sale!

If you've been reminiscing on festival season during the gloomy weather we've been having, you're in luck, because most Irish festivals are already gearing up for summer 2017.

Tickets for the top gigs next summer are in the early bird stages, so now is the time to snap them up before they all sell out.

1. Electric Picnic

Ireland's biggest festival is already getting ready for next year, after massive acts The 1975, Lana Del Ray and LCD Soundsystem smashed the main stage last year.

Tickets are currently only €230.00, so we advise getting in there ASAP because EP sells out every single year. 

2. Beatyard

Winter rages outside but plans for Beatyard 2017 are well underway with early bird tickets going on sale this week.

The festival is offering two for one on weekend tickets for €90 a pair until Dec 23rd, so grab a mate and get booking. 

3. Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit just announced the first of their 2017 line up and the early bird tickets are flying out the door. 

Bon Iver, Flying Lotus and Lisa Hannigan are all set to star on the main stage.  

4. Body & Soul

Body and Soul is one of Ireland's more laid back festivals, with a reputation for a stellar line up. 

While no official acts have been announced, this festival is always worth the trip, and tickets are already on sale!

5. Vantastival

One of Ireland's smaller festivals, Vantastival has a reputation for being one of the most authentic. 

The affordable tickets for the chilled out gathering are only €75.00, so they really wont break the bank. 

6. Castlepalooza

The annual festival at Charleville Caste draws festival revellers the country over.

Last year the festival played host to Caribou, Villagers, Jurassic 5 and Cat Power, and tickets for this year's festival go on sale this Friday.
