Bringing the kids to Electric Picnic? Check out Little Picnic 2019

The perfect spot for the kids if they’re getting sick of the campsite. 

Just what every family-friendly festival needs, an oasis of calm in the middle of all the madness.


It’s taking place in a 19th century walled garden, so it’s separate from all the chaos and noise of the main festival area. The perfect break spot for tired kids, and tired parents alike. 

However there’s more to Little Picnic than just a relaxing corner, it’s going to have music, art, science, nature, sport, theatre, food, spoken word, illustrations and lots more. There’s going to be four different stages and a sports field too.

It’s being organised by the people behind Kaleidoscope, so attendees are sure to be in for a well organised treat.


Performances and workshops include:

  • The Ballymore Brass Band
  • The Explorium Family Science Show with Mark the Science Guy
  • Gaiety School of Acting
  • Marty Moncrieff the Teddy Bear Thief
  • The Javanese Gamelan Orchestra
  • The Laois Youth Orchestra
  • My Higher Shelf
  • Bean & Goose Chocolates
  • Fighting Words
  • Junk Kouture
  • And many more acts

A number of well known faces are expected to make an appearance over the course of the weekend at the Little Picnic Sports Field. If your little ones are into more high energy fun, the Go Gym is exactly what they need to to conk out in a tent!
