Eastern Electrics Festival reveal the plans
Eastern Electrics Festival reveal plans for high-jinks at this year's Electric City with Flash Daddy, Tropical Tea Party, Magic Door, and the Funk School Disco
With the clock ticking until the doors open for the 2015 edition of Eastern Electrics Festival, the infamous party starters announce the full schedule of non-musical high-jinks set to take place on Saturday August 1st. Taking the madness to a next level, the EE crew are going all out with extra curricular activities, with secret raves and mischievous glitter-doused fun with Magic Door gang, plus Tropical Tea Parties, Funk School Discos and even the worlds first uglyproof photobooth Flash Daddy. With over seven years experience creating the baddest parties in the capital, Eastern Electrics this year will deliver full on debauchery and dress-up antics soundtracked by the house, garage and techno elite.
Unadulterated fun is the theme of the day, as Okuru Events present a paradise of light and colour with their Tropical Tea Party. Part rave and part cocktail bar, TTP bring a carnival vibe with palm tress, flamingoes and Hawaiian shirts. There’ll be no shortage of glitter as Birmingham faves Magic Door head to Hatfield with their brand of psychedelic disco, party experiences notorious for fancy-dress fun and guest DJs in secret locations.
For a souvenir like no other visit swag lords Flash Daddy at the ‘worlds first uglyproof photobooth’ for a makeover packed with gold, leopard print and spandex, plus a photo memory to take away. And for ravers wanting to get glam, lippy ladies Miss Lippy are armed with glitter pallets and paint brushes for all your beauty needs. Back to the music, By The Rivers bring a reggae and ska twist to the Electric City, plus Funk School Disco revitalise their parents vinyl collections with a spin on nu-disco and classic sounds.
