There’s no such thing as bad publicity as this story proves. Despite rumours and suggestions (which were quickly quashed by John Reynolds) that Electric Picnic was in jeopardy, it has been announced this evening that the festival’s remaining tickets have been snapped up and that all 32,500 tickets for the festival in Stradbally, Co Laois, which takes place on 29th, 30th and 31st August are now completely sold out.
