HiFields Festival doubles in size for year three


HiFields is set to be one of the best one-day festivals East Anglia again this Summer.

The Cambridgeshire Music Festival taking place at Dullington Polo Club will be expecting over 1500 music lovers to enjoy a day of electronic and live music on Saturday 8th July. The growth this festival has seen is huge with 500 attendees in 2015 and over 800 last summer, this year the capacity is almost doubling in size again.

Previously the event has focused solely on house music, but this year with the inclusion of another electronic music tent hosted by BPM Live offering breakbeat and drum & bass, as well as a live music stage (the famous “Wigwam” from Strawberry Fair) hosted by Twisted Melon, revelers can expect much much more; including pop-up food stalls, a fully licensed bar, arts and crafts, a fairground, an enormous graffiti wall and a few surprises along the way.

The HiFi x Effect tent will host top notch house and techno with Josh Butler headlining. From the North of England to dance floors across the globe, Josh Butler has made serious headway with his high caliber house sound and were are super excited to have him on board this summer. Supporting Josh will be brands from across the UK; including Effect, HiFi, Mixology, Proxy London, Safari and the YAYA from Norwich. 

The headliners for the BPM Live tent are Hospital Records DnB heavy-weights Nu:Tone and Hugh Hardie, both hailing from Cambridge who will be joined on the line up by a 20-piece orchestra “Symphonica” feat. scratch master DJ Rasp, playing a medley of dance music tracks throughout their very unique set.

The intention of HiFields has and always will be to showcase and encourage local music performers and DJs, whilst offering them the opportunity to play on a stage with todays established artists in front of hyped festival crowds.

Early bird tickets have now sold out and Second tier £25.00 are available at www.hifields.com

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
