ABOUT 55,000 PEOPLE will be heading to Stradbally in Co Laois this weekend for Electric Picnic.

The annual music and arts festival is a highlight in Ireland’s cultural calendar.

Tickets for the event sold out within minutes back in March – before the line-up was announced.

This year’s headliners include the xx, Duran Duran, the Divine Comedy, Elbow, Chaka Khan and Interpol.

Here are some photos of people who’ve been enjoying the festival so far:
