If a location of of Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries & Galloway isn’t enough to tempt you away during the August Bank Holiday weekend, then we’re pretty sure that the Electric Fields line-up will be enough to convince you.
The latest announcement sees Fat White Family, Field Music, Honeyblood, and Eliza & The Bear join the line-up alongside previously announced headliners Primal Scream and The Charlatans. Also confirmed for the festival are Everything Everything, Wild Beasts, Public Service Broadcasting, The Twilight Sad and loads more.
The second stage will be named The Stewart Cruikshank Stage in honour of the late BBC radio producer.
“Stewart Cruikshank was a true Scottish music hero,” says festival co-founder Nick Roberts. “He was part of the fabric of music radio in Scotland and the UK for 35 years, giving a much-needed platform to new bands from Scotland and bringing us the best new music from wherever he could find it. With the blessing of his wife Lorraine, we’re proud to acknowledge his exceptional contribution to our musical heritage by naming our second stage in his honour.”
Taking place between the 26th-27th August the two day camping festival will feature a Sneaky Pete’s stage full of exciting names in electronic music, a stage curated by The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, a real ale tent and Bowie disco.
Currently announced for the Sneaky Pete’s stage is Erol Alkan, Joy Orbison, Factory Floor and more, whilst the Tim Peaks stage curated by Tim Burgess will see appearances from Paddy Considine’s Riding The Low, Horsebeach, Teen Canteen and Yucatan as well as DJ sets (including a set from the man himself).
