What’s the weather like for Electric Picnic? Here’s the low-down


The final festival of the summer is looming, and like most of the attendees, we're already trying to plan what we want to wear. 

However, that planning process is pretty difficult when we have no idea what kind of weather we can expect from the weekend. 

Luckily, the first forecasts are out, and we're hoping they improve as we get closer to Electric Picnic.

According to Accuweather, the outlook isn't so sunny for the upcoming festival. 

On the Friday, revellers descending on Stradbally can expect 'considerable cloudiness' with a 25% chance of rain. 

On Saturday, when Massive Attack headlines, it's likely to rain, with a 55% chance of the heavens opening above the campsites.

On a potentially muddy Sunday, the rain should clear, with highs of 18 degrees celcius and a mere 25% chance of rain.  

All three night spent in tents will feel lows of 10 degrees celcius, so bring a blanket, a hoody and some fluffy socks for sleeping in. 

Moral of the story? Pack a poncho, just in case.
