This year's Electric Picnic festival has officially been cancelled.
Organisers had been hoping to run the event in Stradbally at the end of this month.
However, last month Laois County Council turned down a request for planning permission.

The Chief Medical Officer later said he would have no issue if the event went ahead with only vaccinated people in attendance.
That led to a request from festival organisers for Laois County Council to reverse its decision.
The Council has not responded to the request yet, and so Organisers say they have now run out of time to hold the event.
Ticket holders will be offered a full refund, or they can retain their ticket for next year's festival in Stradbally.
Next years event is currently scheduled to take place from the 2nd to the 4th of September, 2022.
