EARLY bird tickets for dance music festival Eastern Electrics 2013 at Knebworth Park this summer are selling out quickly.
Full weekend camping tickets priced at £95 for the three-day electro, house and techno event in the grounds of Hertfordshire stately home Knebworth House have almost all gone.
Taking to social networking site Twitter earlier today (Saturday), organisers Eastern Electrics (@EElectrics) tweeted: “Very very limited early bird weekend camping tickets left at £95. Get them before they run out. Next tier will be £115.”
A limited number of VIP early bird weekend camping tickets are also on sale for £180 plus booking fee.
Visit www.easternelectrics.com/festival-tickets/all-tickets to buy tickets.
EE2013 will take place from Friday, August 2 to Sunday, August 4, with music running from 2pm to 6am on the opening two days and from 2pm to 10pm on the closing day.
Explaining why organisers had opted for Knebworth after hosting a day-long event in London’s Docklands, near the O2 Arena, last summer, the festival tweeted: “All UK festivals have a sound management policy. This is agreed with the local council and residents.
“We explicitly chose Knebworth Park as they have a long and honourable record of achieving great, workable sound levels without damaging their relationship with their neighbours.”
Day tickets for the music festival are expected to go on sale from mid April.
