Electric Battlefields Festival will host Friction, 1991, Mollie Collins, Sami Kubu, DJ Lady Lola, MOK, UHURU and more at the Newhaven Fort, 22nd July 2017.
Electric Battlefields Festival, aptly named after the Fort’s history, will play host to a new and exciting Dance Festival in one of the most unique settings. The Victorian Fort will be bought to life with Light and Sound whilst festival goers dance amongst old WW2 cannons on the parade ground surrounded by the impenetrable Fort Wall.
Electric Battlefields will celebrate the best in New Music from Electronic Artistes including the hotly tipped Mollie Collins and 1991, both of which are playing festivals up and down the country. As we are keen to showcase the best in new music we have partnered with ACM (The Academy Of Contemporary Music) and Brighton dance record label Nightshift Records who will be showcasing some of their best artistes.
Headlining this perfect blend of new Producers, DJs and Live Electronic Music Acts is Brighton Superstar, Drum and Bass Legend and BBC Radio 1 host Friction. Friction is one of the most relentless and respected DJ / Producers in the world, deemed by Pete Tong himself as “one of the big dogs”.
Electric Battlefields is the first in a series of festivals raising the profile for the Newhaven Fort. The venture into creating new and exciting events within the historical landmark will bring a brand new audience to enjoy The Fort in new and exciting ways. We are positive that in years to come these festivals will make The Newhaven Fort a must see place for both it’s events and historical value.
Electric Battlefields will be filled with up to 900 Electronic and Dance Music fans from all around East Sussex, most of which will have never heard of The Newhaven Fort before. With it’s tight confines we have the opportunity to create some of the best boutique music festivals in the South East, making these the must attend festivals in years to come.
