ELECTRONIC music festival Eastern Electrics 2013 opens in Knebworth Park today (Friday).

From the very first London warehouse instalments of EE five years back, to 2012’s first festival at the heart of the Olympic footprint, Eastern Electrics has now arrived in Hertfordshire.

The three-day underground house and techno event runs in the grounds of Knebworth House until Sunday, with German production trio Moderat, Seth Troxler and DJ Maya Jane Coles among the first day highlights for dance fans.

This is the first time the festival has been held in the grounds of the Hertfordshire stately home, previously the scene of epic rock concerts by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Oasis, Robbie Williams and, most recently, Red Hot Chili Peppers. Knebworth was also the venue of international touring rock and metal festival Sonisphere from 2009 to 2011.

More than 100 DJs and acts have been booked to perform over the weekend, and revellers will enjoy music today from 2pm until 6am tomorrow (Saturday).
