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 2016: 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 line-up includes some suitably huge names from dance music's A-list, including Seth Troxler, Eats Everything, Groove Armada, Hot Since 82, Skream and Steve Lawler. 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.
