The three-day, two-night underground house and techno extravaganza kicked off in the grounds of Knebworth House yesterday (Friday).

And a number of tickets for today (Saturday) costing £65 are available online from www.easternelectrics.com

Organisers of the 2pm-to-6am dance event have also held back an allocation available for cash on the door, priced £75 (standard ticket) and £90 (VIP ticket).

Festival-goers who attended EE2013 on Friday raved about the festival afterwards on Twitter.

Reviewing the opening day, Hannah Houtman (@hannahhoutman) tweeted: @EElectrics was absolutely ridiculous yesterday... why am I not there for the weekend?! #getmeback”

While Conor Charles (@ConorChalmers) tweeted: “@EElectrics didn’t disappoint last night... Still two days left!”

However, the all-night dance party didn’t go down so well with a number of residents kept awake by the noise.

Jeremy Williams (@jezzajwilliams) tweeted the Welwyn Hatfield Times to say: “Do we have to put up with this again tonight, 6am is taking the pee! Hardly slept all night.”

North Herts District Council, which granted the festival its licence, has set up a late-night noise complaints line on 0800 310 1544.

Thousands of underground music fans descended on Knebworth yesterday for a mouthwatering line-up of house and techno giants.

Starting proceedings, Barcelona’s original party starters Elrow took to the festival’s outdoor rave space, The Switchyard, and brought back memories of the notorious Manumission Ibiza sessions with their production heavy explosions of confetti, performers, inflatable fun and whole lot more.

Handing over to Dirtybird in the evening, revellers were treated to bass loaded 4x4 beats, acid house, and jack-worthy anthems from Claude VonStroke, Eats Everything, Shadow Child and co.

Huxley smashed the main stage ahead of a fist-pumping set from Maya Jane Coles and deep goodness from Seth ‘Go Bananas’ Troxler.

Tonight (Saturday) dance fans will enjoy some serious techno led action, with international heavyweight Richie Hawtin leading a troupe of some of the best DJs and producers from across the globe, including Maceo Plex, Damian Lazarus, Subb-an, Ellen Allien, Magda, Pan-Pot, Matthias Tanzmann, Tale of Us and countless more.

The mayhem continues across seven stages, a secret venue, indoors and outdoors in the surroundings of Knebworth Park until 6am.

Sunday’s music finishes at 10pm.
