SUNDAY STAGES

Eastern Electrics 2019
Eastern Electrics / SUNDAY STAGES

Eastern Electrics has been a key fixture across the August festival schedule for clued-up dancers for over seven years now, but to really understand the festival it’s worth going back all the way to the start.

A full decade ago in 2008 the first ever edition of EE took place, throughout Saturday and Sunday in a South-East London warehouse. Raves in venues like this weren’t unheard of, but EE set out to change the game, combining an unparalleled musical offering featuring the likes of Cassy, Gerd Janson, and Raresh with a dazzling array of visuals and entertainment for a party like no other.

For the next four years EE continued to refine this formula, hopping between different venues across the capital and connecting the dots between house, techno, and bass music whilst amassing a healthy following in the process.

Come 2012 it was time to take the plunge, and so Eastern Electrics Festival was born. Taking place in Greenwich just a few miles from the site of the first ever party, the festival set out to incorporate everything  that had made those early years so special- no-holds-barred warehouse raving, hi-spec production, and an emphasis on underground talent- with the freedom and fun of an outdoor festival.

Since that first event, Eastern Electrics Festival has grown steadily, criss-crossing the capital across various sites with every edition breaching bigger and better heights until in 2017 we settled on our current home of Morden Park.

Last year saw the addition of ‘Eastern Electrics Sunday’ a who’s-who of the finest in Grime, Garage, and Drum ‘n’ Bass to complement the star-studded House and Techno programme of Saturday.

Eastern Electrics Festival is back at Mordern Park in 2019. As ever, we’ll be bringing the biggest and best names in dance music plus a host of new stages, activities, and surprises in what’s shaping up to be our most exciting year to date. See you there.

Main Stage

The Main Stage is the focal point of Eastern Electrics Sunday, and it’s where you’ll find our biggest and most hotly-anticipated artists shelling it down in the sunshine all day long. At last year’s debut edition of Eastern Electrics Sunday the stage was headed up by Kurupt FM and Sir David Rodigan, and we’ve got some very special treats in store this year too…

The Big Top

Providing a shady oasis in the middle of the festival, The Big Top can host up to 4,000 people at a time so it’s only fitting that it provides the setting for some of Sunday’s main attractions (top give you an idea of scale, last year saw the mighty RAM Records take over the stage for a full label showcase!) Rolling right through from the minute gates open to the very last track, The Big Top also a fully serviced bar inside you won’t have to miss a second of the action!

The Switchyard

A towering industrial setup that recalls the Docklands setting of the first ever Eastern Electrics, The Switchyard is enclosed by stacks of shipping containers and dotted with raised podiums, providing the ideal arena for maximum immersion. When the sun goes in The Switchyard comes to life with an awe-inspiring lightshow- don’t miss this one.

Electric City

The Electric City stage is a beachside paradise transplanted straight from the shores of the Med to Morden Park. Picture sun loungers, volleyball a prevailing feet-up, no-worries vibe soundtracked by live soul, dub, and reggae.

The Plant House

A new addition to the setup for Sunday, The Plant House is a top-spec stage sheltered by a transparent roof to let the sunshine stream in and a beautiful array of plant life within (picture warehouse rave meets greenhouse.) With a heavyweight soundsystem lurking in amongst the foliage, expect things to hot up in this brand new venue.

FuturEE

The FuturEE stage was formerly known as the SubStation, however this year it’s been given a spruce and reimagined as a proving ground for some of the hottest up-and-coming names in bass music, with a few familiar faces to mix it up.
