Back for its third year on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd September, at Stradbally Hall Estate, Co Laois - less than an hour from Dublin - with camping all three nights, the festival capacity has been increased 5,000 to 30,000, but the organisers are promising to keep the intimate nature of the festival.

The line-up for this year across seven stages includes Basement Jaxx, Massive Attack, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Groove Armada, Anthony and the Johnsons, DJ Shadow, Damien Rice, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Frames, Super Furry Animals, Rufus Wainwright (solo), Bloc Party, and loads more - click here for the full details including day splits. There's still more acts to be announced.

A brand new area - The Big Tree, which is a new nature foundation being set up by Damien Rice - will feature a carbon neutral place of music, arts and organic food.

The Body & Soul Village will be enlarged this year, with the village of tipis, hammocks, domes and Moroccan-style dwellings housing organic cafes & juice bars and a range of therapists offering alternative therapies & workshops from Reiki, Reflexology and Shiatsu to Indian Head Massages, Yoga & Dance Workshops and Tarot Readings.

There's also burlesque theatre and cabaret from Lost Vagueness, comedy, face-to-face interviews with some of the acts performing over the weekend, a silent disco, and a cinema. The Electric Picnic’s quirky healthy organic food policy continues together with a wider selection of bars providing a wider variety of drinks plus cocktail bars.

Tickets for the three day festival are now all sold out.

There'll be more information here when available.
