Over the years Eastern Electrics has built up lasting relationships with some of the most celebrated house and techno artists on the global circuit and this is truly reflected in the calibre of talent destined to play at this year's main event. Get ready for eight stages designed for dancing and debauchery. Soundtracking the EE main stage will be an international melting pot of heavyweights, including Joris Voorn, Cassy, Matthias Tanzmann, Guti live, as well as DJ sets from Nick Curly and Enzo Siragusa. Closing the festival once again is icon of the scene Jamie Jones, who will undoubtedly deliver another unforgettable sun down set. Over at the Big Top, Skreamizm will showcase the man himself in house head mode alongside Boddika, Midland, Robert Hood as Floorplan, Richy Ahmed and Jasper James. Global underground goddess tINI is bringing a very special gang to everyone's favourite open air stage, The Switchyard. Sankeys presents another killer line-up headlined by VIVa chief Steve Lawler, and starring Miguel Campbell, Sidney Charles, and Santé, plus two of Sankeys' beloved residents Jozef K and Manu Gonzalez. Black Butter Records will be bringing a bass-laced edge to proceedings in the Forest, featuring the irrepressible DJ EZ as well as a host of the imprints' break out stars, Melé, My Nu Leng, Applebottom, Woz, Wayward and Tazer. Perhaps the most decadent stage you'll encounter all day, XOYO & Sink The Pink present Gloria's Cabaret featuring Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Citizenn, Crazy P, Lil Louis, Horse Meat Disco's Severino, a DJ Set from The 2 Bears (Raf Rundell and Hot Chip's Joe Goddard) and Joshua James - all wrapped in the kinky embrace of Gloria and her favourite London Queens. Presiding over the Star of EE Pub will be whole host of musical legends including UK garage hero Matt Jam Lamont, Mike Skinner and Jon Carter. Over in the VIP area, Kubicle will be dishing out the disco thrills with Miguel Campbell delivering a special hip hop set, and Matt Tolfrey back to back with Geddes. And the party doesn't stop there! As promised, Eastern Electrics will be hosting TWO after parties to ensure the antics continue well beyond the rave fields and into the hot summer night. Featuring a host of heavyweight DJs from the main event delivering special after hours sets across two venues, there is no excuse whatsoever to go home early. At the Forum, Hertfordshire (5 minutes from the festival via shuttle bus), ultimate party starters Richy Ahmed, Miguel Campbell, The 2 Bears, No Artificial Colours plus one special surprise guest will be presiding over the decks in the main room with a D&B sound system and a bag full of records too naughty for daylight. In the Attic Room, hosted by Amplify, Deadcelebrities, B.A.H.Y, Tamer Auf and J Douglas will be raising the roof, all until 6am. Back in the capital the after hours will be kicking off at Egg, with a massive line- up featuring Steve Lawler, Simon Baker, Geddes, Manu Gonzalez, Boddika, Basic Soul Unit, PBR Streetgang, Waifs & Strays and many more, going all the way through until 10am! 22 FESTIVALS Issue 77 / 2015 Behold the full extent of the madness hitting Hatfield House on 1st August The parTy doesn'T sTop aT easTern elecTrics Found break new ground wiTh 51sT sTaTe Festival masters FOUND are working hard to make sure 2015 is their biggest year yet We've already had Born & Bred and Found Festival, and now we're gearing up for the very first 51st State, held at Trent Park on August 8th.
