Electric Fields is to relocate for its 2019 event, festival organisers have confirmed.
The event, which was due to return to Dumfries and Galloway’s Drumlanrig Castle, will now take place at Glasgow’s SWG3 over the same weekend (4th - 6th July).
“After spending the past 5 years putting on a quality outdoor music festival we found the rising costs this year have led us to reimagining how Electric Fields takes place for 2019,” says festival director, Nick Roberts. “Although we leave Dumfries & Galloway with a heavy heart our new venue offers a very exciting opportunity for us to flex our creative muscle and put on an outstanding show in the heart of Glasgow. We will have our full line-up joining us, excellent food and drinks and of course tons to do for little ones with Our Kids Electric. We look forward to seeing faces old and new in July.”
Artists due to perform at the festival include The Vaccines, Iceage, Heavy Lungs and Friendly Fires.
