Electric Fields co-founder Nick Roberts said:
“We’re really proud to be nominated for Best Small Festival after only the third year of Electric Fields. We love the size of the festival and the very special community atmosphere, which is all down to the lovely people who come and join us at Drumlanrig Castle. To be up for Best Toilets is great as well, that’s the one all the festivals really want to get. We can’t reveal the 2017 line-up just yet, but I can say that we’re rather excited about who we’re talking to at the moment. We can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
This summer’s Electric Fields was praised by fans and media alike, with a world-class line-up of 91 local, national and international artists playing across two days, topped by career-spanning headline performances from The Charlatans and Primal Scream.
Electric Fields is just a 75 minute drive from Glasgow, 90 minutes from Edinburgh and within easy reach of the north of England. As well as all the great music, attractions such as Boutique and Family Camping, The Real Ale Festival, high quality world cuisine and the Our Kids Electric children’s area make Electric Fields a truly special, all-round festival experience for music lovers of all ages.
