Though it was delayed, thanks to a belated “freedom day” in the UK, festival season felt pretty special coming off the back of a year off in 2020. This year, as the period expands to the whole summer, so too does this electronic music affair in the woods just outside London.
Not only is Electric Woodlands back for its second year, it’s also doubled in size; now a two-day camping event at Bygrave Woods on July 1 and 2. Plus, it promises a 50/50 split between men and women playing on the lineup this year, so it’s an excellent choice.
Speaking of the lineup, Electric Woodlands have just added a whole host of new names to add to their already stacked lineup. Joining the fun are Paul Woolford, Sigala, Friction & Linguistics, Koven, Nia Archives, SUAT, This is Inja and Gentlemans Club.
The main stage will be hosted by Worried About Henry (Day 1) and DnB Allstars (Day 2), so you can expect the likes of Hybrid Minds, Sub Focus, Shy FX, Wilkinson appearing across the weekend.
Over at the second stage, you’ll find acts including the legendary Annie Mac, Hannah Wants, and Example; and on stage three you’ll get killed sets from Darkzy, Flava D, Skepsis, David Rodigan and many, many more.
Electric Woodlands is kicking off its second year in Bygrove Woods in Baldock, which is just 30 minutes from London. Plus, you’ll get an extra cool woodland setting to really make the journey in July worthwhile.
It’s easy to access, with shuttle buses carrying attendees to the event from Stevenage station. Plus, once you’re there, you’ll have plenty of spots to buy some quality food and drinks for when you need a rest from cutting shapes.
For a two day camping getaway for a reasonable price (£99), it’s unlikely to get much better than Electric Woodlands. Find more information and book your tickets here.
