It's that time of year again, summer is drawing to a close and Electric Picnic is the only thing keeping us going.

The Stradbally festival kicks off this Friday with Elbow, The xx, Chaka Khan and Duran Duran among those set to appear at the three-day event.

While it is completely sold-out, those lucky enough to have tickets have yet another reason to have a smile on their faces - the weather looks like it may actually be decent.

According to Accuweather, the forecast for Friday is for clear skies, sunshine and temperatures of up to 18 degrees.

Saturday will be slightly cooler and cloudy but there's still no rain on the horizon, which will be a major relief to anyone bringing their trusty threadbare tent for the fourth year in a row.

However, Sunday is the real jewel in the crown as it is predicted that temperatures could hit 24 degrees with zero precipitation.

Looks like it's going to be a cracking weekend!
