El Dorado Festival 2017


El Dorado Festival 2017

Six years ago Kanye West stood on an Eastnor stage ranting, it would later be written, about authenticity and Hitler. It was step, if only a small one, to becoming the self-anointed Biggest Rock Star On The Planet. It was Kanye. In Ledbury.

Last summer there was a new boutique music festival at Herefordshire's picturesque deer park and El Dorado, curated by Cirque Du Soul, brought with it the likes of Kano and Elf Kid, Basement Jaxx, and DJs including Blonde and Tensnake.

From June 30 to July 3, the lost world of El Dorado will be back at Eastnor. Headlining 2017 are Groove Armada and Shy FX.


They said: "El Dorado satisfies every curious soul’s lust for adventure. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire, the resplendent park is transformed into a treasure trove of hidden realms for music lovers. It’s a place where curious revellers can explore their beautiful surroundings with plenty of extra-curriculars on offer.

"This year’s chapter is set to be even more spectacular than the last and features over 80 live acts and DJs across seven stages, with two new stages added for 2017.Expect shows from contortionists, acrobats, trapeze artists, fire breathers, and stilt walkers, all under the watchful eye of the El Dorado Ringmaster.

"There’s even more mischief and mayhem onsite with the B.Y.O Inflatable Party, body painting, fortune tellers, skinny dipping, karaoke, blind dating and a pie face showdown."

Weekend tickets £132, day tickets £61.33.
