After a devastating cancellation in 2021, El Dorado festival is back bigger than ever for 2022, celebrating their 6th anniversary in style. Set to take place on 30th June to 3rd July at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, this year marks their first-ever 4-day long event, with an impressive line up of eclectic selectors, a whole new party area and integrated sustainability efforts.
Set to perform amongst the stunning scenery is Grammy award winning and multi-platinum recording artist Al McKay‘s creation Earth, Wind & Fire Experience – a set that no doubt will be filled with disco and funk classics. UK electronic pioneers Groove Armada will be performing their special live show too.
Skream, Midland, Derrick Carter, Gerd Janson, DJ Seinfeld, HAAi, Dan Shake, Moxie, and more will be providing unrivalled rhythms on the El Paradisco stage. Horse Meat Disco, Prospa, Ewan McVicar, Crazy P Soundsystem, CC:Disco!, Tibasko and more will be heading up the Mount Boom stage, alongside liquid DnB sensation High Contrast. For those that like it heavier, there’s also a special Jungle Cakes Takeover ft. Ed Solo, Deekline, Benny Page + MC Sye.
Over at The Nest, SHERELLE, Peach, LCY, Interplanetary Criminal, Dr Banana, Theo Kottis and more will be sending out some serious sonic waves, while Wilkinson, Hybrid Minds, David Rodigan and more will be on the Cirque Du Soul stage.
More than just a music festival though, El Dorado offers a huge array of world cuisines, as well as a varied programme of wellness activities, workshops and panels.
Aiming to offer the most vibrant and sustainable El Dorado yet, the four-day camping festival is working with C-Free who are assisting in the goal of becoming net-zero in the coming years. They’re also working with the Eden Forest project in order to help the local Madagascan community. That means with every ticket sold El Dorado will plant a Mangrove tree in Madagascar creating their very own El Dorado forest – nice touch.
