Gaeltacht Camping Site at Electric Picnic

1st September - 4th September


The biggest music festival in Ireland, organised by Conradh na Gaeilge, will have a Gaeltacht camping site. The spot has been a great success over the last couple of years and we’re really looking forward to being there with you again this year. Celebrate the festival through Irish with us. Irish will be the main language of this site and you are asked to respect it and your fellow campers when you are in this location. There will also be an emphasis on environmental and recycling issues.
