Eastern Electrics, the late-summer one-day festival held in Hastings, is returning for its third year this year (Aug. 6) and the line-up looks better than ever.
There's a huge raft of DJs and artists that are worth catching: Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Eats Everything, Hot Since 82, Richy Ahmed, Skream (who'll be hosting the Skreamizm stage at the Big Top), king of kings Derrick Carter, Artwork (as Grain), Groove Armada (who'll be hosting the Switchyard stage), Waze & Odyssey, Breach, Cassy, wAFF, Detlef, Huxley, Shy FX, Oneman, Mele, Bodhi, NVOY, DJ S.K.T., MJ Cole, Spoony, Artful Dodger and Doorly. Oh, and did we mention Idris Elba will be there too?
With such a dizzying amount of stuff to catch at Eastern Electrics 2016, we thought we'd give you a helping hand by sifting through all of this and put a list together of the five essential acts you simply cannot miss. It goes without saying there's tonnes more besides these five DJs that you need to catch, but miss just one and you run the risk of not getting the most out of this insane line-up.
