Who’s on the Eastern Electrics lineup for 2018?

Eastern Electrics day one lineup was announced on February 22 and came with the news that this year's festival is set to be a two-day event for the first time.

The Saturday event will be headlined by Jamie Jones...

...while Sunday sees David Rodigan take the top spot on the lineup, with two new additions AJ Tracey and 'People Just Do Nothing' stars Kurupt FM.

Easter Electrics Sunday lineup

Previous EE lineup highlights include Carl Cox, Groove Armada, Richie Hawtin and Mike Skinner of The Streets.

We reckon at least a few of these names could pop up again this year (we’ll keep you posted with the latest).

The festival has also announced its stage partners...

  • Eastern Electrics will host the Main Stage (makes sense)

  • Defected In The House will be in charge at the Club Stage
  • Edible are calling the shots at The Switchyard
  • Ministry of Sound are setting up shop in The VIP Area
  • Electric City will be home to Tropical Tea Party
  • And some very special headline guests will be found at The Star of EE Pub

Sunday's stage partners include Eastern Electrics, So Fresh So Clean, Matt Jam Lamont, Reggae Roast and South London Soul Train.
