And that’s a wrap for another ecstatic year at Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co Laois. Some 55,000 people and their destroyed tents (alongside their destroyed morales), mucky wellies?and inevitable hangovers have returned home today after four days of music, dancing, singing, and rain.

JUST EAT brought their hugely popular JUST EAT Retreat to the Electric Picnic Festival for the third year, offering festival-goers a destination where they could relax, order food and drink to be delivered by the Just Eat Waiters and enjoy some luxurious pampering from a range of services including a nail bar, tanning tattoo artists and a barbers. Also on the menu this year was a series of ?Tent Talks? at the Just Eat Retreat, which delivered inspirational talks from a diverse range of contributors including Tropical Popical owner Andrea Horan alongside representatives from charity partner Peter McVerry Trust.

Highlights of this year’s festival included The Chemical Brothers, the RTE Symphony Orchestra (who ingeniously performed classic 90’s hits), NoelGallagher’s High Flying Birds, Gavin James, and Lana Del Ray.

Apart from the abundance of music, there was plenty of theatre, comedy, spoken word, and debating taking place in the MindField; with special emphasis placed on mental health, the refugee crisis, and the Repeal campaign. Over 700 acts in total performed over the weekend. What was your favourite part of the weekend?
