Breaking News: The Charlatans to co-headline Electric Fields

Scotland’s most exciting new music festival just got even better with the news that The Charlatans will join the Primal Scream as headliners for the third instalment of Electric Fields, with over 40 more artists added to the line-up.

Those much-loved survivors of the Madchester era will be able to draw on an amazing back catalogue of hits – including Weirdo, Can’t Get Out Of Bed, The Only One I Know, North Country Boy and One To Another – to produce a truly wonderful festival experience for those attending the event at the picturesque 17th Century Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries & Galloway.

Electric Fields, which takes place on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 August, having this year expanded to two days for the first time, have also added Wild Beasts, Steve Mason, Sugarhill Gang, C Duncan, The Go Team and Admiral Fallow to the line-up.

publicPreviously announced acts include genre-defying indie outfit Everything Everything, corduroy-clad electro-archivists Public Service Broadcasting (pictured) and many more (full line-up below), including The Twilight Sad, Erol Alkan, Model Aeroplanes and Joy Orbison.

“We’re delighted to welcome another of the biggest bands in the country, The Charlatans, to headline alongside Primal Scream at Electric Fields,” said festival co-founder Nick Roberts. “They have such an incredible body of work, including one of my favourite albums of last year, Modern Nature.

“We’ve been working hard on creating an incredible lineup, with a whole host of amazing artists from all over the world as well as some of the finest local acts around. We’re looking forward to the most exciting and diverse Electric Fields yet.”

With the expansion to two days, Electric Fields has added boutique camping and a dedicated family camping area to the weekend’s options. The Real Ale tent, top-notch world cuisine, activities and games for kids, and many more surprises will only add to the overall experience.
