Electric Fields have also announced that the second stage will be renamed The Stewart Cruikshank Stage in association with Tenement TV. Stewart, who passed away late last year, was a champion of new music throughout his long career as a radio producer at the BBC and beyond.

Electric Fields co-founder Nick Roberts said, "Stewart Cruikshank was a true Scottish music hero. He was part of the fabric of music radio in Scotland and the UK for 35 years, giving a much-needed platform to new bands from Scotland and bringing us the best new music from wherever he could find it. With the blessing of his wife Lorraine, we’re proud to acknowledge his exceptional contribution to our musical heritage by naming our second stage in his honour."

The site is approximately 90 minutes drive south of Glasgow / Edinburgh and 90 minutes north of Carlisle.
