UK: Set to take place on August 5, Eastern Electrics has revealed the hosts of its eight stages, featuring new additions Knee Deep In Sound and iconic label Defected Records, plus the long awaited return of Skreamizm, Rinse FM, Viva Warriors, Star of EE, Tropical Tea Party and a VIP area hosted by Jocks and Nerds.
These partners will entertain attendees in the best of house, techno, disco, garage, bass and more, plus lots of onsite activities.
As ever, the main stage is hosted by Eastern Electrics themselves. Last year saw a surprise Tuskegee B2B with Seth Troxler and The Martinez Brothers, and this year promises equally renowned names. The industrial Switchyard stage will be curated by Knee Deep in Sound, the party created by house mainstay Hot Since 82, bringing a cast of prized DJs to soundtrack the area. Eastern Electrics family member Skream heads The Bigger Top with a roster of favourites for a Skreamizm takeover, representing darker shades of house and techno.
Ibiza mainstays Viva Warriors return to the Club Stage, bringing through both residents and specials guests, plus London house music label Defected Records will bring uptempo, feel good jams. Purveyors of the finest in garage, grime and bass flavours will join on the The Star of EE arena, where Rinse FM are running things, bringing a different flavour to the day’s proceedings. Finally, the Tropical Tea Party is an arena where cocktails, live bands, and much much more can be found.
This year’s VIP comes courtesy of Jocks & Nerds, who will take the few VIP ticket holders on a journey through five decades of dance music with some of the most iconic selectors in the game. Extra love for the sixth Eastern Electrics edition comes from media partners BE-AT.TV and Ministry of Sound, both much-loved brands in the electronic music community.
