Electric Fields announces first acts for 2017 festival


Electric Fields has made a Burns Night announcement that a host of the finest Scottish music acts of the modern era will be joining them for a weekend celebration of top class entertainment. Returning to the grounds of the 17th Century Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries & Galloway, Electric Fields will welcome Frightened Rabbit, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Arab Strap, And Yet It Moves, Crash Club and Brat and the Bonemen to this year’s event.

They are the first names on a lineup which will ultimately feature over 100 artists. Returning for another year are Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s, who will again curate their own electronica stage, and Tim Burgess will bring back his own curated ‘Tim Peaks Diner’ experience.

Over the past three years Electric Fields has welcomed everyone from seasoned festival veterans to tiny first timers. Mums, dads, teenagers and tots can all revel in the amazing atmosphere at one of Scotland’s best small festivals.

As well as a smashing musical lineup, Electric Fields will this year be expanding its food and drink offering with a curated Food Village, and a dedicated tent hosting EF’s very own Ale and Craft Beer Festival. This year will also feature comedy, spoken word and film. For the young ones, their “Our Kids Electric” area returns with a whole host of entertainment and workshops and an adventure playground.

Tickets are on sale now from £95 at the festival website.
