🆕Statement from Laois County Council on Electric Picnic.
🔴We can't reverse our decision on not allowing the event to go ahead next month, and even if a new application is lodged now, a decision couldn't be made in time for September's event. pic.twitter.com/QuqZuCBaNO

James O'Connor, Fianna Fail TD for Cork East, believes the organisers should move it.
"We could be looking at situations like hosting it stadiums," he said.
"The overnight camping aspect of this music festival may not be something that could be possible."
