We Are FSTVL is perhaps the most exciting new festival of its kind around. Launched with a bang in 2013 as a brand new 15,000 capacity dance festival promising to bring together the biggest names in electronic dance music alongside some of the world’s leading club brands and labels in a remarkable setting, they did not disappoint, taking out the 'Best New Festival' gong at the first time of asking at the UK Festival Awards.
The inaugural festival played host to over 70 acts across 10 stages and arenas over one magical day, and the 2014 edition is twice as big, stretching to two stupendous days in the English sun. Taking place over a sprawling 122 acre former WW1 airfield in Upminster, Essex, We Are FSTVL is more than just an expansive world class line-up, placing a huge emphasis on production value to create an unrivalled festival experience never before applied to the UK dance festival market. Custom built structures give each arena its own distinctive identity to create a series of parallel worlds. Expect to see an arena made entirely out of shipping containers, a 2,000 capacity beach arena inspired by a tiki paradise and a secret crop circle rave, each with its own set of LED video walls, state of the art lasers and Funktion One Sound systems. Plus prepare for unexpected twists and surprises nestled away such as dress-up boxes and play areas for those who want to blend seamlessly into their fantastical surroundings, flashmobs and bespoke never-before-seen design details, making We Are FSTVL a game-changer on the UK festival scene.
