Now we know festival fever is fast-rising in Blighty so we thought it was high time we had a closer inspection at one of our musical highlights of this year’s calendar, Eastern Electrics.
Back in March we were intrigued to hear the London promoters behind EE announce that they were shortening the event that’s taking place in the glorious surroundings of Hatfield House, some 22 minutes from Kings Cross from last year’s three-day affair to a one-dayer, due to take place on Saturday 2nd August.
Sticking with the same number of stages, they’re looking to up the ante on production and deliver the best edition since their beginnings in 2007. With a massive Coronet takeover for the after-party, a short dash out to Hertfordshire and back to see some of the fine talent they’ve got on board this year may be just the ticket.
Talking of which, they’re selling fast. 70% of the lot have already gone, so head over here to bag yours and make sure you’ve got that first weekend of August firmly sorted.
Musical highlights include Daniel Avery, Mano Le Tough, James Priestley and Kerri Chandler. What’s more Rinse, Red Bull Studios and Mulletover are hosting stages, the famous Igloo Vision dome IS returning and they’ve also constructed one stage purely from shipping containers. We’ll be publishing our very own Eastern Electrics playlist next week, but for now here’s a taster of some the talent that you’ll be shuffling your feet to.
