Best of May: We Are FSTVL

After their record-breaking sell-out success of last year, We Are FSTVL 2016 returns this month presenting their biggest and best line-up yet. Over the spring bank holiday weekend of the 28th-29th May, the Airfield of Dreams at Damyn’s Hall in Upminster will play host to over 200 artists across 16 different stages.

The festival began in 2013 and is former winner of Best New Festival, Best Medium Sized Festival and Best International Festival. This success is reflected by the calibre of talent on display this year. The main stage will be dominated by leading names including Fatboy Slim, Steve Angello, DJ Fresh, and Sigma among others.

Beyond the headline acts, the festival boasts a myriad of DJs and producers from across EDM, from the drum and bass legends SHY FX and Sub Focus at the UKF and Hospitality stages to well-known deep house producers such as Tchami, Disciples and Shadow Child at the MK Area 10, Defected in the House, Used + Abused and Cocoon stages. We’re seriously looking forward to soaking up this variety throughout the weekend.

 

 

The festival has five different ‘realms’ on offer including both its VIP and XCLSV packages, with their own exclusive Glitterbox, Clockwork Orange Music, Pukka Up and Cuff stages. Since its inception, the festival has retained a reputation for its theming and it appears that this year will not disappoint. With over 30,000 people attending last year, we can’t wait to see what Essex’s tour de force of electronic music has in store this year.
