For many Grime and UKRap fans the festival offerings so far have been disappointing, in general, compared to other years. With many festivals opting to drop their grime focused stages the lineups have shifted towards more mainstream genres. However, Eastern Electrics festival has come with a sick lineup, Rinse FM stage partnership and an event Grime and Rap fans alike cannot dispute is going to go OFF!
Rinse FM is a staple station for the scene, pushing the sound to a massive audience and acting as a key player in the growth of popularity in UK urban music genres. Partnering up with Eastern Electrics festival they bring us a stage lineup which wipes the floor with nearly ALL offerings we’ve seen so far this year. Suspect, AJ Tracey and Kurupt FM are all people who could headline stages at other events but thats not how they do it at EE…they’re all thrown in on one stage amongst other MASSIVE names like David Rodigan, Ghetts and 67. But the hidden gem set is Grandmixxer b2b with Spooky; if you want to know what grime REALLY sounds like head to this set and you wont be disappointed.
Aside from the Rinse FM stage, Eastern Electric’s Sunday lineup will play host to big names across select genres; from Matt Jam Lammont, and his stage hosting talented acts such as Bassboy and garage kings Oxide & Neutriono, to the Ram Records stage which features some mad DJ sets from Bad Company UK, Dimension, Friction and the always live Culture Shock.
The Saturday of the event is no joke either, focusing on more House and Techno music you can expect to see genre toppers such as TQD, Eats Everything and Jamie Jones headline some insane stage lineups.
