It’s back… and bigger than ever!

While the summer may be nearly over, we’re making sure it goes out with a bang at Electric Picnic with the return of the JUST EAT Retreat.

The JUST EAT Waiters will be on hand delivering from amazing eateries and drinks right back to your seat in the Retreat so festival goers can kick back and relax!

Our main tent this year will play host to our lineup of world-class DJs such as Al Doyle, from Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem, Kelly Ann Byrne, Fish Go Deep, Arveene, legendary Johnny Moy Billy Scurry, Handsome Paddy and Mother DJ’s  and much more.

This year will see the return of our festival pampering with a range of services including a “Festival Glam” nail salon & pampering from Tropical Popical & Cocoa Brown, Barbiere barber service, Just Eat photo booth, and complimentary barista coffee service so you can stay fresh and festival fit right through until Sunday.

As if all of that weren’t enough, we also have the Picnic Porters on hand from 9am until 8pm Friday and 10am until 3pm on Saturday. We know it’s a long walk from car to campsite so the Picnic Porters will help take your festival kit from the main entrance into the campsites.

We’re proud to be  using our prominent presence at the festival to help drive awareness of the issue of homelessness. Working with our charity partner, Peter McVerry Trust, one of the ‘Tent Talks’ will focus on this growing social issue. We’ll also be tapping into the generosity of festival goers by looking for a voluntary contribution for the treats on offer at the Retreat with all funds raised going to Peter McVerry Trust’s work to provide housing solutions for young people experiencing homelessness.

We will also be piloting “Tent Talks” at the Retreat, with inspirational talks from a diverse range of contributors including Marissa Carter, founder of the Cocoa Brown brand, and Tropical Popical owner Andrea Horan. There will also be a Tent Talk by Peter McVerry Trust, JUST EAT’s charity partner!
