Following on from the runaway success of this year’s event, the organisers have confirmed that the 2006 Electric Picnic will be a three-day affair running from September 1 to 3.
“There was such a great vibe in the campsite on the Friday night that we thought, ‘Let’s start a bit earlier and make it an official part of the festival,’” says a spokesperson. “Other than that, things will be done exactly the same as they were this year.”
The Picnic selling-out appears to have sparked off some inter-promoter rivalry, with an Oxegen website survey asking: “Did you attend the Electric Picnic? If you did can you put in what you liked about that particular event and what you didn’t like.”
The gloves, it appears, are off!
