Not all good news . . .

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

How­ever, it wasn’t all good. Com­plaints aired this week ranged from poor book­ing de­ci­sions (many won­dered why the Beastie Boys were in an over-crowded tent) to the atro­cious sound from some of the stages.

Whinges about the scarcity of toi­lets, the fail­ure to make the timetable avail­able in ad­vance, in­con­sis­tent se­cu­rity de­ci­sions and the bars clos­ing at 10pm were also heard.

“I won­der how long the Elec­tric Pic­nic can carry on the pre­tence it’s a bou­tique fes­ti­val?” mused one reader. “The camp­site was stretched to ca­pac­ity and the Ox­e­gen rite-of-pas­sage fac­tor seems to be creep­ing in.”
