ORGANISERS behind the Eastern Electrics Festival have vowed to add “even more interesting elements” to next year’s event in Knebworth Park.
The team behind the electronic music festival have thanked the thousands of techno and house music fans who attended the three-day dance extravaganza, held in the grounds of Knebworth House for the first time between August 2-4.
And with a three-year licence at the Hertfordshire stately home already granted, plans are now being put in place for 2014.
A statement posted on the Eastern Electrics website on Thursday said: “We’d like to thank everyone that came to the first Eastern Electrics Festival.
“It took a lot of hard work from everyone involved to move from a one-day event in central London to a three-day all-day and all-night extravaganza in the countryside, but we pulled it off.

“Anyone who came to the event will have seen the effort that went into building the Switchyard and the Electric City, as well as all the other touches around the site, such as the forest area. We’re gonna build on all of these things next year and add even more interesting elements to the mix.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by amazing feedback from the artists, people that worked on the show and most importantly you guys [the fans]. We can’t wait for EE 2014, we’re already putting the plans in place – booking the acts, improving the production and as soon as we’ve got some more news, you guys will be the first to know.”

The event, which saw more than 100 acts take to the stage, was criticised by residents in the surrounding area who lodged complaints about the noise level and music being played until 6am on two consecutive days.
About the issue, a spokesman said: “Eastern Electrics employed the leading industry sound management company, and will be meeting with everyone involved with the event to discuss the concerns raised by residents in September.’
