It’s not the line-up that makes a festival it’s the people who attend it that do.

So, while everyone else was having fun, we sent our intrepid team out into the wiles of Electric Picnic, to catch the sights of Ireland’s favourite festival in all of its glory.

And wouldn’t you know it we found more than a few characters and familiar faces along the way.
