Eastern Electrics

Hatfield House, London Saturday August 2 2014 0:00

Jamie Jones, Skream, Floorplan, tINI, Steve Lawler, DJ EZ, Lil Louis, Guti, Richy Ahmed + more acts tba.

Returning to the grand grounds of Hertfordshire's Hatfield House for the second year, premier dance festival Eastern Electrics has grown into an even bigger beast for 2015: the capacity of the one-day event has expanded to 12,000 people, plus the organisers have added an eighth stage and a 'ravey woodlands' area, which will no doubt delight the party-hungry hordes. The first wave of announcements includes some suitably huge names from dance music's A-list, including house wizard Jamie Jones, dubstep and disco don Skream, techno dude Steve Lawler, garage legend DJ EZ and Chicago house ace Lil Louis, with plenty more names to come. And if you want a break from all that dancing, the Electric City area is also returning to satisfy all your cabaret, fairgound and pillow fight needs.
