Eastern Electrics Festival

After becoming the fastest selling electronic music festival in 2012, Eastern Electrics Festival 2013 goes bigger, later, longer and louder than ever before.

Breaking the mould, this summer EE will move to the legendary Knebworth Park, just 20 minutes from central London. Steeped in a rich musical heritage, Knebworth Park has staged infamous concerts from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, Oasis and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Here, in the rolling Hertforshire countryside,

Extending to three days and two full nights, EE2013 will see over 100 of the finest global artists and sought after rising talents in electronic music, spanning a metropolis of arenas, hosted by more than fifteen underground elite promoters from across the UK and Europe. Running from 2pm to 6am on Friday and Saturday, and 2pm to 10pm on Sunday to offer an epic 44 hours of musical adventure!

Amongst the first names to be revealed are Visionquest head honcho Seth Troxler, recently voted no. 1 DJ in 2012 by Resident Advisor, mistress of minimal Magda, techno heavyweights Chris Liebing, Ellen Allien and Michael Mayer. Following the release of his highly acclaimed Fabric 64 mix, Guy Gerber is also set to join proceedings.

Further sets are confirmed from Dirtybird's Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin, plus Eats Everything, Joy Orbison, Pan-Pot, Cassy, Catz N Dogz, Damian Lazarus, Anja Schneider and Detroit legend Theo Parrish.

Some of the hottest rising stars for 2013 will be playing including Mexican production duo Climbers, LA DJ collective Droog, deep house deviants Âme, Berlin's Dixon, Levon Vincent, Richy Ahmed, Subb-an and DJ Tennis following his distinguished set at last year's Sonar. And having appeared at every EE event from the very beginning, it wouldn't be Eastern Electrics without a stomping set from Geddes.
