We Are FSTVL is an award winning dance festival launched in 2013. The festival brings together the biggest names in electronic dance music alongside some of the world’s leading club brands and labels, in a remarkable setting. Playing host to over 70 acts across 10 stages and arenas over one magical day, We are FSTVL really sets itself apart from the competition.
Not content with hosting an expansive world class line-up, We Are FSTVL places a huge emphasis on production to create an unrivaled festival experience. Taking place over a sprawling 122 acre former WW1 airfield in Upminster, Essex, 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.
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, all making We Are FSTVL just that bit different from other festivals.
