Electronic music festival Eastern Electrics will return this summer – but the 2014 venue has not been confirmed yet by organisers.

"Eastern Electrics is something that is extremely close to my heart."

The underground house and techno extravaganza took place in the grounds of Knebworth House last year.

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

Organisers of the festival today (Monday) 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.

Now in its sixth year, the Eastern Electrics brand has grown from one of the UK’s premier underground warehouse raves in 2007 to a fully fledged music festival, first hosted in 2012.

Promoter Rob Star presents the third Eastern Electrics Festival this year. He said: “Eastern Electrics is something that is extremely close to my heart.

“I have worked tirelessly for the last six years to build the event from a weekend warehouse rave at the arches in Great Suffolk Street to a festival for 15,000 people.

“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.

“This is the third year of the festival and having relocated to a different site each year, we hope that we have finally found our home.

“Having promoted underground parties for more than 15 years, I’m totally committed to building an underground electronic music festival that the UK can be proud of.”

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

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