Blessed with beautiful weather and tantalising techno sounds, our Saturday at Eastern Electrics was the perfect mid-Summer highlight. The crowds flocked to South London’s Morden Park for a day of house, techno, and – with this years’ new addition of the Rinse FM stage – drum & bass, grime and garage. With a wonderfully curated line-up ahead, championing a selection of both underground and more renowned music names from a multitude of genres, we were ready for a day of mixed musical adventures.
Our day started with a high energy set from pocket rocket DJ Barely Legal, that had the Rinse FM tent full with good vibes and happy ravers. After an injection of bass we headed out to explore and floated from stage to stage, bouncing to upbeat house sounds as we went. Each stage at the festival had its own individual identity, both musically and aesthetically, each celebrating their own distinctive sound. Further highlight sets included Sir Spyro, My Nu Leng, Franky Rizardo, Âme and of course, King Carl Cox who ended the festival on the Eastern Electrics main stage.
As well as smashing the ball out of the park musically, Eastern Electrics was a breeze of a festival. With a variety of food, drink, chill-out areas and a cashless wristband system, it really was a pleasant place to be. For more information, visit www.easternelectrics.com.
