MORE acts have been added to the line-up for the UK’s biggest outdoor celebration of underground and techno dance music set for Knebworth Park this summer, including the Saturday headliners.
Organisers of electronic music event Eastern Electrics 2013 have confirmed Hot Natured LIVE as the main stage headliners for the Saturday night.
With no Sonisphere rock and metal festival taking place at Knebworth House this year, EE2013 is the biggest music event in the county this summer.
Tale Of Us, Surgeon and tINI have also been announced for the all-night bash taking place in the grounds of the Hertfordshire stately home from Friday, August 2 to Sunday, August 4.
Known for thundering sets, Hot Creations have become firm festival favourites in recent years, but the story began nearly a decade ago in dark basements and dusty warehouses of East London.
Jamie Jones and Ali Love first performed for Eastern Electrics organisers back in 2005.
Five years later, Jamie Jones’ collaboration with Seth Troxler and Damian Lazurus at EENYE 2010 remains a point of reference in the history of the underground house scene.
Looking to the future, they continue to push boundaries with the launch of new project, Hot Natured LIVE.
This audio-visual spectacular sees the distinctive vocal stylings of Ali Love as frontman on lead guitar while Jamie Jones, Lee Foss and Luca C unleash a veritable arsenal of synths, keyboards and pads to a multitude of lasers carving through crowds of uplifted hands.
Festival director Rob Star said: “Having been friends with Jamie and Ali Love for the best part of 10 years and Luca C and Lee Foss more recently, I was so pleased to confirm them as one of the headline acts at our first weekend event.
“The boys are all incredibly talented musicians and know exactly what it takes to move a dancefloor, as well as how to party!
“The fact that they have recently sold out two shows at Brixton Academy, shows just how popular their sound is and I can’t wait to see them close the main outdoor stage at Eastern Electrics on the Saturday night.”
Also announced across the weekend’s festivities are Paco Osuna, who started smashing dancefloors in his hometown Barcelona before taking up residency at Ibiza’s Amnesia, and Visionquest’s Shaun Reeves, who joins Friday’s billing.
Tale Of Us will bring their deep, soulful sounds to Eastern Electrics’ arena on Saturday.
Techno rebel Surgeon takes to the stage for LWE and Desolat powerhouse tINI completes Just Jack’s arena.
Garage-house duo Bicep will take to the main stage early on Friday for eager revellers.
Music will take place from 2pm to 6am on the opening day.
Revellers will be entertained from noon on Saturday until 6am the following morning and from noon on Sunday until 10pm.
Weekend tickets are priced from £115 plus booking fees and day tickets start from £30.Visit www.easternelectrics.com for tickets.
