PREVIEW: El Dorado Festival @ Eastnor Castle, 30/06/2017 – 03/07/2017

The Verse’s Will Craigie previews El Dorado festival, taking place on the 30th June – 3rd July at Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire. 

One of the newest festivals to be held this summer, El Dorado is back for its second year and is turning Herefordshire into an Aztec-themed wonder of fantastic music and good times! Based on the beautiful grounds of Eastnor Castle, this is not your average festival. The line-up boasts a range of eclectic acts who are guaranteed to make you dance the hours away, such as Groove Armada, SG Lewis, and Shy FX, as well as old-skool garage heads Artful Dodger, grime upstart AJ Tracey, Jax Jones, and Redlight. The godfathers of hip-hop, The Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Melle Mel, and Scorpio’s Furious 5, will also make appearances. Hip-hop hippie indeed.

But there is also much more on offer at El Dorado. Feeling exhausted from the endless party tunes? Why not enjoy a yoga class or a massage from one of the mobile parlours. You will have earned it! Or, if you fancy a bit of sport, you and your friends can compete alongside real athletes in the Elympics! Pop into the old-skool circus for a nostalgia fix or enjoy the range of global street food available (hopefully fish and chips will be a part of the menu!). Try your hand at bloody pottery or splash some cash in the vintage bits ‘n’ bobs store.

Whatever you fancy, El Dorado is guaranteed to deliver. Start your summer here!
