- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Taking place across three days and two nights in "the rolling fields of the Hertfortdshire countryside," the Eastern Electrics Festival has confirmed a plethora of top-notch DJs and producers to perform this August—including the likes of Maters at Work (pictured above), DJ Koze, Maya Jane Coles, Moderat, MK, Maceo Plex, Planetary Assault Systems (performing live), Levon Vincent, and Huxley. Among the other artists named in the sizeable lineup are Bristol's Eats Everything (who is preparing an EP with Justin Martin—also set to perform—that you can preview here), Cologne-based Kompakt boss Michael Mayer, UK bass mainstay Joy Orbison, Hessle co-owner and DJ behind the XLR8R Pick'd Fabriclive 67, Ben UFO, and hard-edged technoist Blawan, among many others.
