Speaking to The Irish Mirror Desmond said, 'It is five months away.'

'I would be optimistic that Electric Picnic will happen but of course we are in un-chartered waters here.'

'I’ve no doubt that there will be a relaxation of the restrictions in place but it will probably be some time before we can have 20,000 people in a stadium or in a field.'

Referring to China, Desmond said, 'We are two months behind them and we are not as badly hit with Covid-19. If we are back to normality by July, we would be doing well.'

Elsewhere in the interview the Managing Director of live music promoters at MCD revealed The Gaiety Theatre will re-open in September.

While he hopes The Olympia Theatre can re-open in July.

Sold out

All 70,000 tickets for Electric Picnic 2020 are sold out.
