Eastern Electrics Festival 2017 | Saturday 5th August, 11am – 10pm
With summer edging closer and the sun starting to bless the skies, it can only mean one thing; it’s nearly festival season! And if you’re a dedicated house and techno head, Eastern Electrics Festival should be number one on your list. This Saturday August 5th sees the almighty EE crew unite old friends and new to host eight expertly programmed stages, featuring new additions Knee Deep In Sound, iconic label Defected Records, plus the long awaited return of Skreamizm, Rinse FM, Viva Warriors, Star of EE, the infamous Tropical Tea Party and a super special VIP area hosted by Jocks and Nerds. Expect the finest sounds across house, techno, disco, garage, bass and more for this summer outing, plus lots of on-site fun and games to keep all party people entertained. With early bird tickets long sold out, and second tier available now from just £29.50, it’s time to secure a spot at what is set to be a highlight event of the UK Festival calendar.
As ever, the main stage is hosted by the Eastern Electrics clan and the EE team keep it strictly banging. Last year saw a surprise Tuskegee B2B with Seth Troxler and The Martinez Brothers, under the glorious British summertime sunshine – so expect international headliners spinning records all day long. The industrial Switchyard stage will be curated by Knee Deep in Sound, the party created by house mainstay Hot Since 82, bringing an all star cast of prized DJs to soundtrack this special stage. Eastern Electrics family member Skream (remember when he DJ-ed on the back of a rickshaw round Oxford Street?) heads The Bigger Top with a whole clan of favourites, for a Skreamizm takeover, representing darker shades of house and techno. Keep eyes peeled for details on talent coming very soon.
