The third and final day of the Hertfordshire festival was spearheaded by a mammoth US onslaught on the main stage.

Legendary house pioneers Masters At Work, aka Kenny Dope and Louis Vega, Chicago powerhouse Kerri Chandler and EE favourite MK all joined the party today (Sunday).

Day two of Eastern Electrics saw the techno giants take over the outdoor Switchyard, the Igloovision Dome and, of course, the EE main stage.

The likes of international heavyweight Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing and Pan-Pot ruled the roost until the small hours.

Festival-goer Joel Marshall (@JoelMarshall_) tweeted afterwards: “There is no explanation I can give for what I just witnessed. Richie Hawtin @EElectrics was unbelievable”

While Becky Carver (@beckiicarvaa) had a blast, tweeting: “Can’t explain how amazing @EElectrics was yesterday! Rahhhhh”

Revellers on Saturday were also treated to an energetic set from Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ mighty Hot Natured show.

And those lucky enough to get into the Boiler Room stage at EE’s secret venue saw intimate performances from Roman Flügel, Anja Schneider and Subb-an.

Barcelona’s original party starters Elrow started proceedings on Friday afternoon, taking to The Switchyard, the festival’s outdoor rave space made out of shipping containers.

They brought back memories of the notorious Manumission Ibiza sessions with their production heavy explosions of confetti, performers, inflatable fun and a whole lot more.

Handing over to Dirtybird in the evening, fans 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 Troxler.
