Retreat from the humdrum of the main arena into Mind & Body, Electric Picnic’s area dedicated to creating an oasis for all the senses, where inspiration evolves and energy is replenished. Take a deep breath and transport yourself to a haven of calm, nourishment and chill through this carefully curated programme featuring some of Ireland’s leading healers and therapists to focus your mind and invigorate your vitality.
With the aim of promoting mindfulness and positivity, Mind & Body will rejuvenate your body from top to bottom with an array of professional treatments encouraging you to relax and rewind, as well as harmonising your inner being with some of the best medicine of all: dancing the weekend away to top musicians with friends in this hamlet of intimate stages. With the final festival line-up previously announced, this is where you can catch performances from Sorcha Richardson, 49th & Main, Kean Kavanagh, Amy Michelle, Lemonade Shoelace plus much more.
The Consciousness Village
The Consciousness Village is set to be a sanctuary of joy, singing, dancing, quiet meditation and deep transformation where you are invited to sit cradled around the fire deep into the night, to set your intentions and re-energise your soul; come with an open heart and leave with a full one.
The programme is spread out over two stages with a beautifully cultivated serenity garden. There will be yoga of all kinds, including Kundalini yoga, laughter yoga and poetry yoga as well as the opportunity to awaken your inner power through Qi Gong and to sink into immersive electro and acoustic sound baths. This is where you can allow your true self to emerge and roam free.
An Electric Picnic fixture since the start, The Haunt is a place where anything goes.

With comfortable seating surrounding the dance floor, cut loose to an eclectic range of music from Jazz, b’nb, Blues, Rock and Roll, Calypso, Country, Folk, Latin, New Orleans Brass to more modern sounds. Expect anything from a Planxty mixed with Berghain techno to yacht rock and comedy records! The Haunt will also be running the “Stoopid Request Line” with guest DJs from the festival and even festival-goers plucked out to spin the decks.
