Electric Fields, Scotland’s most exciting new music festival, will return for its third instalment to the stunning grounds of the 17th Century Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries & Galloway, in August 2016.

Electric Fields 2016 will offer festival goers even more incredible music and time to enjoy the intimate, community atmosphere that made it such a hit with fans during its first two outings, by expanding to a full two days on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th August.

To celebrate the launch of this new, expanded format, Electric Fields is delighted to announce that a limited number of EARLY BIRD tickets – priced at £75 – will be on sale at 9am on Thursday 17th December.

With exciting headliners and dozens of fantastic artists yet to be announced, festival goers have much to look forward to at Electric Fields 2016.

A range of boutique camping options, high quality world cuisine, carefully selected real ales, new stages, lots of activities and games for kids and many more surprises – all in the incredible surroundings and atmosphere that have made Electric Fields the new summer highlight for music
festival lovers.

Electric Fields co-founder Nick Roberts said:

“We’re really pleased to be able to offer a full two day festival experience for the first time at Electric Fields 2016. Having two days means we can bring even more incredible acts here to the beautiful estate at Drumlanrig Castle. The future of Electric Fields is hugely exciting and we can’t wait to welcome everyone come August.”
