Everyone at Electric Fields is happy to announce the first wave of the 2018 lineup! We’ve pulled together a mighty fine lineup to help us celebrate our 5th birthday and are delighted to be welcoming a collection of some of the most exciting bands and artists from around the world to a pocket of idyllic Scottish countryside.
We’re welcoming three HUGE headliners led by the mighty Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, for what will be one of the most intimate festival shows of Noels career and we can’t wait. Indie legends James (Thursday night headline) will be bringing their back catalogue of anthems, while Leftfield will close the party on Saturday night with whats set to be a truly memorable live set.
Alongside the big guns we have some of the most exciting artists from around Scotland and further afield with the likes of Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers, Teenage Fanclub, Ezra Furman, Shame and a ton more.
As well as an amazing musical line-up, we can also reveal that after a smashing debut last year, Scotland’s finest wordsmiths Neu Reekie! are back to showcase the best in spoken word on their own dedicated stage. To celebrate their fifth birthday in style, EF18 is set to expand its entertainment offering where people can expect to laugh out loud at an extended comedy and cabaret programme. One of Scotland’s most respected venues, Sneaky Pete’s, returns for another year with a curated lineup of groundbreaking electronic music.
