Eastern Electrics will transform their new London home (to be announced very soon) into a fantastical playground spanning seven stage areas, all soundtracked by the crème de la crème from the house, techno, disco, bass and garage worlds. This year the icon, the legend, the don Carl Cox headlines the EE Main Stage; a face who has shaped the electronic underground for over two decades working with institutions like Space Ibiza and Privilege. Prolific duo Âme (DJ) are also set for the main stage, along with Do Not Sleep head honcho Darius Syrossian and new school tech head Nick Curly. Finishing off the bill are dream team house duo Waze & Odyssey and Alexis Raphael.

Eastern Electrics’ much loved Switchyard arena hands over controls to Hot Since 82 this year, who’ll bring his Knee Deep In Sound team to the industrial themed stage. As well as an anticipated set from the man himself, he’ll be joined by revered Italian duo Mind Against, a breakout success story of recent years. Plus, Desolat affiliate and craftsmanGuti plays live, joined by Numbers’ poster boy Denis Sulta, and Deep House mainstaySerge Devant.
Skream makes a welcome return as an Eastern Electrics stage host, taking over The Bigger Top with an all-star cast in tow. Skream has evolved to be one of the most important British artists across the last decade, from his early days as a dubstep pioneer to his recent explorations of the house ilk. Helping Skream hold it down is Defected affiliate Dennis Ferrer, Watergate resident and Hot Creations / Rekids artist Butch, plus Glasgow selector squad Jon José & Celino. There’ll be some very special guests too – keep your eyes peeled.
This years Big Top is hosted by returning crew, Viva Warriors. Punters can see Steve Lawler, Art Department and Denny journeying through deeper house and tech. Also stepping up is newcomer Elliot Adamson, a producer who has shot into the public eye since working with Patrick Topping. Warriors resident Jamie Roy is also on board, a name with releases on Skream’s Ofunsoundmind imprint and 8Bit, plus trio Wax on Mare Street who’ll present sleazy disco explorations.
Making an EE debut is revered institution Defected, the London label who have grown into global club brand with their solid output, epic parties and much-loved artists. For their first EE stage, they’ve recruited a set of label pals; with first lady of Defected Sam Divine set to lay down some funky-filled house jams, plus favourite Sonny Fodera and Kings of Tomorrow member Sandy Rivera all on. Hotly-tipped producers Emanuel Satie, aficionado Franky Rizardo and Italy’s Dario D’attIs are another few names representing for the Defected camp.
