We Are FSTVL has just announced its entire line up and tickets are on the cusp of selling out entirely. Well, with a line up like this, who could really be surprised?
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. Eagerly boasting a star studded line up featuring the absolute crème de la crème in every electronic music genre imaginable, the May Bank Holiday festival is redefining what a weekend in London should be.
Returning for its 5th year, and the first time the festival is opening up the option to camp, We Are FSTVL is nestled in the heart of Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Upminster. The event boasts an eye-watering 30 stages, so whether you’re into the kind of smooth tropical house you might find on Majestic, or you prefer the 178 BPM relentless drum and bass you’d find at Warning, the festival is able to cater to your every need.
It’s an near impossible task to cater to such a wide variety of tastes, but the organisers have pulled out all the stops this year, and it’s really proven it, with tickets selling out two months before the event begins.
Bringing the touring TS5 showcase full circle to his prime vibe-hunting ground, Craig David, the voice of UK R&B and garage, joins some of grime’s forefathers with Wiley, Giggs and Dizzee Rascal bringing the London sound.
Carl Cox, Armand Van Helden, Kink and Seth Troxler are all guaranteed to draw in half of the entire festival’s crowd to their sets, so be sure not to miss all four of these show stopping acts throughout the weekend.
Take a look at the after movie from 2016 below (unless you didn’t manage to get a ticket this year, otherwise you’re just teasing yourself.)
