While camping at a festival may not be the most glamourous of experiences, festivalgoers at this year’s Electric Picnic will have a chance to dine in style as part of a new charity initiative.
The Fine Dining Picnic will see Ireland’s top chefs serve up a five-star silver service dinner in a vintage marquee, with all proceeds going to suicide prevention charity Console.
The event was launched by Derry Clarke of L’Ecrivan this week and the Michelin-star chef will be joined by Kevin Hui of China Sichuan, Warren Massey of L’Gueuleton, Michelin star chef Ross Lewis of Chapter One and chef Lorcan Cribbin.
The dress code for the Ultimate Picnic Banquet is Black Tie come Festival Fabulous and attire, as well as changing rooms will be provided, so that guests can really get into the mood of the celebration.
Seats are limited, with a total of five sittings over the weekend. The first will be held on Friday at 5.30pm, with two on Saturday and Sunday at 1.30pm and 5.30pm, and each sitting will last approximately two hours.
Tickets to the Fine Dining Picnic are priced at €120 and include a half bottle of wine.
