Electronic music festival Eastern Electrics will return this summer – but is unlikely to pitch up back in Knebworth.

The 2014 venue for the underground house and techno extravaganza has not yet been confirmed by organisers and was held in the grounds of Knebworth House last year.

But Martha Lytton Cobbold, managing director of Knebworth House, has said the estate is unlikely to host the dance music dons, with metal festival Sonisphere set to be the only such arrival this year.

She told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We aren’t hosting Eastern Electrics this year, just the Sonisphere Festival at present.”

EE2013 was a three-day, two-night bash, attracting around 15,000 revellers to the Hertfordshire countryside.

On Monday, organisers of the festival confirmed there will be an all-day party on Saturday, August 2.

The Eastern Electrics’ 2014 line-up and festival location will be announced next month.

Promoter Rob Star presents the third Eastern Electrics Festival this year.

He said: “Eastern Electrics is something that is extremely close to my heart.”

He added: “At times it’s been a roller coaster ride, but we are 100 per cent committed to providing amazing electronic music events in the most beautiful settings.”

The first release tickets will go on sale in March, starting at £29.

Standard tickets will cost from £29 to £59, with VIP passes priced at £79.
