Default Electric Picnic 2013

Normally the early birds are out by now but it's been very quite.

I suspect the announcement has just been delayed as they have a message on their homepage saying Early Bird + Lineup details coming soon.

Or... it could be in doubt, there is a lot of largescale gigs already announced, 2 Slane Gigs, Neil Young, Bruce and the usual festivals. Oxegen is supposed to be coming back next year also, and all festivals struggled with ticket sales in 2011/2012.

From what I recall the 'in the know' media types saying last year, the Picnic already have the site sorted for 2013 so it's almost a certainty it'll be on in some capacity. They did quite well last year in the absence of Oxegen so if they can attract the same interest this year they'll do very well.

Odd that they haven't announced yet but maybe the glut of announcements pre-Christmas will make them wait until afterwards. Early Birds are usually out already but if they announce it in January or February, it probably won't be too big a hit. The possibility of failing to sell as people have opted for Bruce, Neil Young, Slane, etc. instead is probably worse in the publicity stakes than holding off a few weeks.

Was there not a story that the venue was going to be different this year?

If so maybe there are still working through planning applications etc.

Picked up a Life Festival ticket today. First one for me, looking forward to it. Have plenty of friends who've been and they say it's excellent.
