ELECTRIC PICNIC 2014 kicked off last night, after a rainy, muddy and to be honest slightly frightening start.

Here’s how the first night went for everyone.

There was a bit of confusion as people found their way around

Of various kinds.

There was warm beer

And there were complaints

But there were also the Pet Shop Boys

There was fierce competition to get your tweets on The Big Screen

Like, really fierce.

James Murphy killed it.

Irish band Little Green Cars drew a big crowd

‘Gimp Wellies Luchador Guy’ is apparently a thing

Blondie is still a legend

Lots of people were enjoying themselves

And it’s a sunny start to Day Two!
