For those in the know FARR Festival has, for the last two years, quietly been making noises in the festival circuit as one to watch. 2011 saw the likes of Lee Foss, Julio Bashmore and Ewan Pearson tear apart the secluded Bygrave Woods in Hertfordshire for what was one of the best Boutique festivals of the summer. This year will be no different with stages by Sancho Panza, Just Jack, Flux and Ransom Note vs Society hosting some of the finest up and coming and established DJ’s and live acts that electronic music has to offer.
Headlining in a rare festival appearance is, long standing resident and musical curator of Saturday nights at Fabric, Craig Richards alongside Miguel Campbell, Eats Everything, George Fitzgerald, jozif, Waifs & Strays and Huxley. Expect a high caliber of electronic music with representatives from the best of underground House, Techno, Disco, Drum n Bass and UK Bass music.

As if the main event wasn’t enough, the ground breaking Eastern Electrics festival has now disclosed is afterparty information…
Since the move from the original Clapham Common site to the never-used before Area 12 on the Greenwich peninsula, it seems only natural that Proud2 (at the 02) has been chosen as the official Eastern Electrics afterparty venue.
Housing one of the world’s most powerful audio soundsystems courtesy of Martin Audio and its famous Body Sonic dancefloor, Proud2 will be the perfect place to carry on the madness. In conjunction with the ever popular Junk Department and Just Jack promotions, Eastern Electrics have announced four special headliners to spice up the proceedings in the form of Art Department, Tale of Us, Thugfucker and Mosca, with the promise of many more to come…
