Returning for it’s fourth year on 28th and 29th May 2016, We Are FSTVL is back, starting the summer with another exciting line-up featuring some of the biggest names in electronic dance music. A winner of multiple awards the event is going from strength to strength hosting over 200 DJs who will play to 50,000 festival goers. As the festival continues to grow 2016 sees a brand new set of stylised arenas and structures which include some of the industry’s biggest known brands. Split in to six zones we see the some of the world’s biggest DJs and producers take to themed stages.
As the temperature begins to heat up and sun shines strong the likes of MK will present Area10 on Saturday with Hannah Wants, Catz n Dogs and Oliver Dollar who will be taking over the Ancient Realm tent. If you’re a techno head then Cocoon with Sven Vath will be seen in the dark techno warehouse alongside Richie Hawtin on the Sunday. Regular visitors to our site will recognise Glitterbox, Do Not Sleep, Defected In The House, Cuff, Paradise and Cocoon. Guess what, the popular Ibiza residents are all taking over at We Are Fstvl. Popular names including Andrea Oliva, Sam Divine, and Sonny Fodera who play venues such as Amnesia and Ushuaia on the White Isle will be dropping beats in the Defected tent. Amine Edge & Dance who ripped up the dancefloor in Sankeys during the Ibiza 2015 season will be seen alongside Sirus Hood in the Cuff tent. Jamie Jones who featured at the highly acclaimed Paradise night at DC10 in Ibiza invites Music On legend Marco Carola, Solomun, Hot Since 82 and Richy Ahmed to name a few to make in my opinion the best line up.
A Uneek Ibiza favourite Fat Boy Slim who we have previously interviewed, plays the main stage alongside other headliners including Steve Angelo, DJ Snake, Tchami and Disciples. Established in Essex We Are FSTVL is taking place at the Airfield of Dreams at Damyn’s Hall, Upminster. Accessible in just 20 minutes direct from Central London. Travelling to the festival is easy and event organisers have set up regular shuttle buses to help attendees access the site. This UK festival kicks off the summer season offering you world class acts with a very reasonable ticket price.
