Following up from last months big announcement Eastern Electric, the underground house and techno festival has added another 30 acts set to play over their 6 arenas this August. Generating the most excitement will surely be the reunification of eclectic German threesome Moderat, the combined tour de force of Modeselektor and Apparat that featured in so many end of year lists in 2009. This time they’re back with a new album of fresh material and are promising a spectacular live show to coincide with the launch of the new album we revealed last week. Further to the electronic supergroup other hotly anticipated names added to the roster include the introduction of internationally renowned Sasha making his EE debut, the meteorically rising Maya Jane Coles the “Baron of Techno” himself, Dave Clarke and the hugely hyped Luke Slater alter ego Planetary Assault System. With a plethora of other talent also joining the roster this summer looks to be a big one for Eastern Electrics and here at DT we think August can’t come soon enough!
