Electric Fields – 30/08/18 to 01/09/18 – Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway

Take a trip to the idyllic Scottish countryside to celebrate the last weekend of the summer. Nestled in the shadow of a castle and surrounded by stunning foresty, Electric Fields has everything.

In 2018, Scotland’s fastest growing small festival returns with a not so small line-up which boasts legendary Oasis mastermind, Noel Gallagher heading up the bill.

Also taking the top spots for EF 2018 are indie heroes James and experimental dance anthem makers, Leftfield. Add a sprinkling of shoegaze from the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Ride and The Horrors, throw in some fresh new art-pop from Ezra Furman, The Oreilles and Flamingods and top it off with some good old-fashioned indie sing-along style from The Coral and you’re really cooking with gas!

Electric Fields is a safe and family-friendly festival! With lots of things to keep kids entertained, as well as Drumlanrig Castle’s huge adventure playground which is just a short 5-minute walk away. As part of the standard ticket, Electric Fields have a dedicated Family Campsite, so you can take the little ones along and avoid the warm cider canned carnage of the regular campers.

Sounds perfect, right? Get your tickets for Electric Fields 2018 for a mere £115 for an adult, £49.50 for Teens (13-15 years), £22.50 for children (6-12 years) and free for under 5’s.



The Orb – 13/10/18 – Riverside, Newcastle

Hot on the heels of critically acclaimed new album ‘No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds’, longstanding electronic titans The Orb are pleased to announce a 6-date UK tour this Autumn, in celebration of 30 illustrious, fun-filled and envelope-expanding years. The celebratory shows will feature a 30thAnniversary Greatest Hits set highlighting the best of The Orb, alongside debuting tracks from their brand new album.

Really, The Orb should need no introduction, but in essence, they’re a rotating cast of members helmed by Alex Paterson that began in 1988 and still thrives to this day. They were there since UK acid house day one, providing a unique ambient take on the musical milieu and soon rising to chart-topping, huge-venue-headlining prominence.

Always exploring the outer reaches of sound, over the years, The Orb’s humour-tinged, ne’er boring palate has encompassed ambience, electronica, house, techno, dub, global sounds and, in recent years, also embraced hip-hop and minimalist composition.

They’ve released 17 albums plus EPs, singles, compilations and live recordings, influencing countless other musicians along the way.
