Having picked up trophies for Best New Festival 2012, Best Medium Sized Festival 2013 and Best Dance Event 2016 at the UK Festival Awards, it’s unsurprising that the demand for We Are FSTVL has reached new heights. Back for the 6th instalment, the guys over at We Are have cemented even more astronomical headline acts for the May event.
Kicking off 2018 with a bang big enough to shake off those January blues, Upminster-based festival heroes We Are FSTVL have announced Drum and Bass titans Pendulum as part of the Sunday headliners line-up – they’ll be joining already announced Eric Prydz, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, and MK.
The multi-award winning festival have also revealed leading Techno DJ Ben Klock and talented electronic music duo Bicep, plus stage partners Oscuro London, and Paravana Project for their sixth celebration of Electronic and Grime music culture.
Making their We Are FSTVL debut, music heavyweights Pendulum are a band who need little introduction. With over 15 years in the game, Rob Swire and the boys have helped revolutionise live electronic music and successfully conquer the world of Drum and Bass, they’ll be bringing this sound to the field on Sunday 27th when you can expect a DJ set of epic proportions.
Another name with legendary status, Berghain resident Ben Klock is welcomed to We Are FSTVL for the first time and joins the likes of already announced Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Green Velvet, Mall Grab and Enzo Siragusa on the HYTE stage.
An ever-present force within the Techno movement, his intense and powerful sets have made him the most in-demand DJ-producer in recent years – his set at We Are FSTVL on the Saturday is one not to be missed.
After a killer year with the release of their self-titled debut album and some established DJ sets under their belt, Northern-Irish duo Bicep make their long-awaited We Are FSTVL debut on the Main Stage on Sunday. Having defined the sound of a generation, their hotly anticipated DJ set is sure to pack a punch.
