After an incredible 2016 and on the day we celebrate the country’s greatest poet, Electric Fields joins the party and has taken the opportunity to announce a host of the finest Scottish wordsmiths of the modern era with their first announcement of artists that will be joining them for a weekend celebration of top class music, amazing food and great entertainment.

 Returning to the stunning grounds of the 17th Century Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries & Galloway, Electric Fields are excited to welcome Frightened Rabbit, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Arab Strap, And Yet It Moves, Crash Club and Brat and the Bonemen to this year’s event. 

As the first names on a lineup which will ultimately feature over 100 artists, Electric Fields has once again taken strides to showcase some of the most exciting music around at the moment. Returning for another year are Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s, who will again curate their own electronica stage, and Tim Burgess will bring back his own curated ‘Tim Peaks Diner’ experience.  

Over the past three years Electric Fields has welcomed everyone from seasoned festival veterans to tiny first timers. Mums, Dads, Teenagers and Tots can all revel in the amazing atmosphere of Scotland’s best small festival. 

As well as a smashing musical lineup, Electric Fields will this year be expanding its food and drink offering with a curated Food Village, and a dedicated tent hosting EF’s very own Ale and Craft Beer Festival. This year will also feature comedy, spoken word and film with Q&As from some very special guests. For the young one’s the “Our Kids Electric” area returns with a whole host of entertainment and workshops and of course, the legendary adventure playground is a hop skip and a jump away!
