The lake is the perfect way for Olympic swimmers or the doggy-paddlers to see a whole new side to the festival. The beautiful lake is located in the idyllic surroundings of the Stradbally Hall estate so swap the sparkles for your swimsuit and refresh yourself with a dip in an area surrounded by a copse of ancient oak and ash trees. The lake will be a thriving hub of excitement and will be well signposted from the Jimi Hendrix campsite, so it will be very easy to find. Picnic lifeguards will be on duty to watch out for everyone’s safety over the course of the weekend. And there will be changing rooms to spare your blushes so pack up your togs and get swimming!
Since 2016, Electric Picnic has opened its ‘lanes’ to festival goers both on land and water.
