London’s Eastern Electrics Returns to Hatfield House

Escaping the busy streets of Central London, Eastern Electrics will soon be descending onto the beautiful grounds of Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. Only 25 minutes away from the capital, house music lovers and festival goers alike are in for a treat. Especially with this year’s lineup. Bigger and better than ever before, expect to rave to some of the biggest names in dance music including Seth Troxler, Skream and The Martinez Brothers, who are all topping the festival’s all star bill.

With the festival celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary, the crew have been working hard to make sure 2016 is extra special. On Saturday 6th August expect to be welcomed into the festival boasting nine different stages. Some of these include an ‘Industrial Stage’ curated by legendary dance music duo Groove Armada and a Black Butter Records stage representing the ‘bassier’ artists of lineup like dnb/jungle king Shy FX, Oneman and Mele. If you’re looking for something a bit different, though, look no further than the glitter filled ‘Electric City’ that shall be returning to the event for a fourth year in a row. The ‘Secret Paradise’ is said to be filled with disco wonders including a glitter station, dress up area, photo booths and a volleyball court, complete with sand. What’s more is that the arena is located off the beaten track so be sure to look out for the ‘Enchanted Forest’.
