With this year's stellar line-up, we know that Electric Picnic 2016 was going to sell out fast.
But no one was expecting it to sell out this fast!
Without warning, EP social media pages shared those most dreaded of words yesterday evening: "Sold out."
While a sigh of relief was heard by those who had got in there early and purchased their ticket, there was an audible collective murmer of PANIC.
Stradbally's annual music and arts festival is setting up shop on the 2nd of Sep and with acts such as Lana del Rey, LCD Soundsystem, Haim and The Chemical Brothers, it's little wonder that tickets were snapped up in record time.
Still, there is reams of fans who are not dealing well with the sudden news:
Can't believe Electric Picnic sold out already
