The UK’s premier underground electronic music event Eastern Electrics Festival returns on Saturday August 2nd and has announced the first six names on a lineup that will represent the finest from the UK underground and beyond for one unforgettable all-day party.
Proponents of a low-slung bass-infused house sound, Art Department join the party, alongside BPitch Control head and creative genius Ellen Allien, and deep house luminary and champion of all things soul Kerri Chandler. Chart-topping house upstart Route 94 is on the bill, as is Tania Vulcano, an underground force to be reckoned with, and acclaimed house and techno selector tINI rounds up The Six – but this is only the beginning; Eastern Electrics Festival is curating a lineup of more than 30 acts, soon to be announced.
Having grown from one of the UK’s premier underground warehouse raves launched in 2007 to a fully fledged 10,000-capacity music festival, Eastern Electrics is a brand that always delivers, and which has broken boundaries in experimental music programming.
In addition to today’s announcement, there are more than 30 acts still to be revealed – look out for more details in early April.
Plus, the Eastern Electrics Festival faithful can extend the party with a monster after-party at The Coronet Theatre. More information for that coming soon…
Eastern Electrics Festival can also reveal the location of its new home, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. Coming to a stately home only 20 minutes outside of London, and only a minute’s walk from Hatfield train station, Eastern Electrics Festival celebrates the very best sounds coming from an electronic music scene that has never been so diverse, exciting or innovative. Providing a majestic setting for an inspirational lineup and rousing party atmosphere, Hatfield House is an impressive backdrop – and a solid home for one of the UK’s most revered electronic music events.
Promoter Rob Star presents the third annual edition of Eastern Electrics Festival this year: “The feedback from the event last year was so good that it made sense to stay in the Hertfordshire countryside, so we decided to relocate to the beautiful Hatfield House. It’s such a great move for us, and comes with the advantage of being right across the road from the train station, so you walk off the train and straight into the festival grounds.
“The new venue also means that we can retain all of the attractions that made last year’s event at Knebworth so special, including the Electric City, the fairground rides, the bespoke stages and our favourite pub the Star of EE. Hatfield House ticks all the boxes for us and we're certain that this will be the first of many Eastern Electrics Festival events here. Welcome to your new EE home!”
