Brand new one day event We Are FSTVL is set to launch next year.
The festival season is more crowded than ever, with the summer of 2012 witnessing more failures, call offs and rain-sodden disasters than fans might care to remember. However as long as new events keep popping up, Clash will hold off signalling the demise of the great British outdoor event.
We Are FSTVL is a new addition to the festival calendar, and it seems to have more ambition than most. A one day dance event, We Are FSTVL will take place on a 122 acre site at Damyns Hall Aerodrome, a functioning former WWI air base in Upminster, Essex.
In all, more than seventy acts will perform at the festival, with organisers currently plotting ten bespoke structures and arenas. Amongst the themes areas on show, We Are FSTVL will boast Cocoon Heroes (featuring Sven Vath and Ricardo Villalobos), Kehakuma, Crosstown Rebels, Secret Sundaze and more.
Each stage has been carefully thought through, often using unusual designs. Mulletover, for example, are planning to host a rave in a crop circle with appearances scheduled from Kerri Chandler, Joy Orbison, Huxley, and Waifs N Strays.
Early bird tickets are on sale now.
We Are FSTVL takes place on May 25th.
