Electric Picnic Festival Director Melvin Benn says there's something to suit everyone's tastes:
"The body of the line-up I think there's bit for everybody there with Chic and Nile Rogers with the story of hip-hop with Sigrid and Dua Lipa and Jessie Ware."
As well as all the top acts and entertainment on offer there is also a range of health and safety awareness campaigns there too.
The Ana Liffey Drug Project is taking steps to provide harm reduction services at Electric Picnic this weekend.
It'll be giving high-quality health promotion information and materials to festival-goers.
It'll be in the Welfare Tent in the Jimi Hendrix campsite, the Eviction Tent and will have an outreach service across multiple campsites.

Ana Liffey Drug Project Chief Executive Tony Duffin says they'll be working with other organisations to try and keep people safe:
"Working alongside the Samaritans, Code Blue, the Medics and Irish Red Cross."
"We will be saying to people it's safer not to use drugs at all but if you do decide to use then we will provide people with information that will keep them as safe as is possible."
