Ricardo Villalobos tops the lineup for We Are FSTVL
A new event will begin on May 25th in Upminster, Essex called We Are FSTVL.
Among the list of players, Ricardo Villalobos headlines the 1st festival, accompanied by Sven Väth, DJ Sneak, Guy Gerber and more!
The forthcoming event will encompass a former World War I airfield (a total of 122 acres), with a total capacity of 15,000 people and about 70 DJs playing on 10 different stages. The action starts at 11:00 AM and runs until 2:30 AM the next morning, decked out with custom structures designed to give each stage its own unique feel. Examples include a "secret crop circle rave" and a "tiki paradise," all equipped with Funktion One sound systems and LED walls.
We Are FSTVL programming is full of house and techno, as every stage is managed by a different label or promoter. Cocoon Heroes will bring Ricardo Villalobos and Sven Väth, while DJ Sneak and Supplement Facts boss Guy Gerber will head up the Kehakuma stage. Crosstown Rebels has the largest presence so far, with Damian Lazarus, Art Department, Dixon and a live set from Mathew Jonson, among others. From New Jersey, Kerri Chandler will play the otherwise UK-centric Mulletover stage, also featuring Joy Orbison and Huxley. Other highlights include '90s house legend Marc Kinchen, up and coming UK duo Dusky and PBR Streetgang, with more stages and gigs to be announced in the near future.
