More than 70 per cent of the tickets for the 2014 Eastern Electrics Festival at Hatfield House this summer have now been sold.
"Hatfield House ticks all the boxes for us and we’re certain that this will be the first of many Eastern Electrics Festival events here."
The underground house and techno dance festival will take place in the grounds of the Hertfordshire stately home for the first time on Saturday, August 2.
And revellers have snapped up nearly three-quarters of the tickets available for the event.
A statement from organisers said: “Tickets for Eastern Electrics 2014 are running low.
“If you or your friends are planning to come to the event, then don’t hang around, as you will be disappointed.”
There are also less than 50 VVIP tickets left, which includes access to the all-day bash in Hatfield Park and the afterparty at The Coronet in London.
On the day, festival-goers in Hatfield will be able to rave in The Switchyard, enjoy pillow fights in the Electric City and listen to US house master and innovator Kerri Chandler closing the outdoor stage as the sun sets.
Organisers have also announced three new acts.
Monika Kruse will appear on the main stage, while Craig Richards and Dense & Pika also join the festivities as dozens of DJs entertain the masses.
Eastern Electrics 2013 was a three-day, two-night party in the grounds of Knebworth House last summer.
