Electric Picnic 2010: The best moments in photos

Relive the weekend’s revelry with TheJournal.ie’s slideshow.

THERE ARE SERIOUS TRAFFIC delays for people leaving the Electric Picnic site this morning due to surface water from last night’s heavy rain. AA Roadwatch says it’s taking around an hour for motorists to leave the carpark and get onto the main road. Traffic is congested around Strandbally, but there are no major delays once cars get onto the M7 Dublin-Limerick road or M8 Dublin – Cork road. The AA advises drivers to take care on the wet roads today.

Back to Dublin? U2′s 360° could come full circle

“Advanced discussions” are being held about having U2′s world tour return to Dublin in two months.

Is this the worst X Factor audition ever? We reckon it just might be. Telling the crowd to shut up, asking a judge who they are, and hitting each other? Classy young women. Bring back autotuning, we say.

Kanye totally goes off on one on Twitter

West apologises to Taylor Swift again for that awards interruption – and compares himself to Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy.

IT’S HEAVILY RUMOURED that Tony Blair – fresh from escaping a hail of flying eggs at his book signing in Dublin earlier today – may be on his way to Electric Picnic to engage in a debate with former Labour MP George Galloway over his role in the War of Iraq. Galloway is taking part in a debate on whether there can ever been peace in the Middle East at 7pm, and Blair is rumoured to be planning on attending. He could, of course, opt not to get rained on instead.

ECONOMIST DAVID MCWILLIAMS has told festival-goers at the Electric Picnic that Ireland should actively pursue a debt default. Arguing that Ireland is better off defaulting sooner rather than later if it does so at all, McWilliams said “moral and financial logic” dictated that Ireland needed an  ”organised” default.

REVELLERS making their way to Stradbally for the second day of the Electric Picnic festival are advised to scrap their plans for bringing sun-tan lotion and instead to stock up on wellington boots – it’s rained heavily on the site overnight and what was a summery wonderland has now turned considerably muddier. Last night’s headliners, Roxy Music, were apparently great. John Lydon must not have been too happy with his PiL crowd last night – the Irish Times’ Jim Carroll reports that Lydon was spotted in Dublin Airport fleeing the country this morning.
