RTÉ Two has announced that it is to televise next weekend's sold-out Electric Picnic Festival.

'Two Sounds: The Electric Picnic' will be broadcast from the late afternoon until late in the night on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September, and will feature live and recorded performances by the artists on this year's bill at Stradbally Hall Estate in Co Laois.

Hosts Tom Dunne and RTÉ 2fm DJ Jenny Huston will present the show from a special RTÉ Two Green Room at Stradbally Hall Estate and viewers will also be able to see interviews with the bands and the fans.

RTÉ 2fm will also be broadcasting exclusively live from the event and for the first time www.rte.ie will stream the festival online.
