We Are FSTVL will be placing a huge emphasis on production to create an unrivalled festival experience, never before applied to the UK dance festival market. Taking place over a sprawling 122 acre former WW1 airfield in Upminster, Essex – a 20 minute train journey from Central London – custom built structures will 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.

Founder and Creative Director Nikki Gordon is formerly from the team behind the TDK Cross Central, The Cross, The Key and the recent Luciano Cadenza Vagabundos show which took place earlier this year.

This event is for over 18s only.

There will be more information here when available.
