Eastern Electrics 2013

Eastern Electrics Festival announced a further 30 artists and 6 arena hosts for what is set to be the biggest underground house and techno festival line-up in the UK to date.

Electronica supergroup Moderat, the adroit fusion of Modeselektor and Apparat will release the follow on from their highly acclaimed self-titled album that saw them voted no. 1 Live Act in 2009 by RA readers. The Berlin production trio will debut new material with a very special live performance at Eastern Electrics, set to coincide with the worldwide album release date. A meteoric rise to success has seen Maya Jane Coles become one of electronic music's most sought-after talents, and with her hotly anticipated debut album dropping later this year, the pint-sized producer is only just getting started. 

International superstar DJ Sasha will be making his first EE appearance as will Soul Bros, a heady union of Soul Clap and The Martinez Brothers. After stand-out performances at last year's Festival and NYE, MK, Maceo Plex, Miguel Campbell and Huxley will all be welcomed back for 2013.

Adding to the already robust techno constitution are some of the scene's most influential innovators in the form of “The Baron Of Techno” himself, Dave Clarke, Ovum head honcho Josh Wink, Moon Harbour founder and resident of infamous DC10's Circoloco Mathias Tanzmann, Luke Slater's alter-ego Planetary Assault Systems and genre main-stays Raresh and Deetron.

Honouring not only the cutting edge in house and techno, but celebrating it's heritage, Eastern Electrics 2013 will see a rare UK performance from one of house music's most influential production duos and true pioneers, Masters At Work. With a career spanning almost two decades ?Little' Louie Vega and Kenny ?Dope' Gonzalez are celebrated for an eclectic body of work, instrumental in helping shape the course of electronic music and earning them the ?Outstanding Contribution' Award at the US Dancestar Awards at the Miami Winter Music Conference 2002. 

With over 40 more artists still to announce including some of the biggest names, making for a total of over 100 artists, playing 24 parties over 3 days in 1 epic location.
