Eastern Electrics Festival returns with Art Department, Ellen Allien and Kerri Chandler

First names announced for relocated festival.

Eastern Electrics Festival has revealed the first six acts for this year’s knees-up, which this year arrives at the stately venue of Hatfield House in Hertfordshire.

So far it’s a house-heavy selection, with Toronto duo Art Department (pictured) and deep house luminary Kerri Chandler heading the bill alongside chart-topping UK newcomer Route 94, while BPitch Control boss Ellen Allien and Desolat affiliate tINI bring a touch of German techno to proceedings and Circo Loco’s Tania Vulcano rounds off the six.

Eastern Electrics promoter Rob Star said all the attractions from last year’s festival at Knebworth would be present and correct at Hatfield House, including the Electric City, the fairground rides, the bespoke stages and the Star of EE pub.

Keep an eye out for more news on the 30-strong line-up, taking place over seven stages – Art of Dark, Eastern Electrics, Kubicle, mulletover, Rinse, Star of EE Pub and Electric City. Check out our photo gallery from last year’s festival.

Eastern Electrics Festival takes place on Saturday, August 2, from 11am-10pm at Hatfield House in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
