IT’S ELECTRIC PICNIC Eve and people all over the country are busy buying their drink for the weekend.

 Hi John[...] You can bring 48 cans with you.

48 CANS PER PERSON. That’s an absurd number of cans!

To put that into perspective: if a person was to bring 48 cans to Electric Picnic with them, that would mean drinking 16 cans per day.

Which is frankly sick.

That’s 1,387 cans for every person living in Stradbally.

Happy Picnic!
