“..Electric Fields has established itself as an essential part of the Scottish music calendar… everything that a small festival should be.”
“..this small festival has set a marker for the others aiming to
stand out on the Scottish festival market. Magnificent.”
“..the boutique festival that is getting more and more popular..
enjoying praise from all quarters.”
“An amazing experience all round and one of the friendliest
events I’ve been to.”
Jim Gellatly, The Sun
“There are three elements required to form a perfect outdoor music festival – an eclectic and exciting line-up, a friendly atmosphere and being able to sit down without getting caked in mud. Electric Fields in Dumfries and Galloway had all three.”
“..fast gaining a reputation as a must-attend event
on the musical calendar..”
Dumfries & Galloway Standard
“[Electric Fields] has earned its right to be one of the anticipated events of the summer for years to come."
"..fast becoming one of the highlights of the summer.. at less than £100 a ticket this festival is a bargain when you consider the acts on display.."
“Their reputation for good food preceded them and that family friendly, community atmosphere they boast about was executed wholeheartedly”
“While there's a definite family-friendly atmosphere there's still
some serious partying going on..”
