Dedicated New Music Blog
So, we’ve already had Chelsea, shall we highlight a clubnight/festival in Essex..if we are indeed to tour the UK based on TV shows (though don’t judge the event on the terrible TV show, it looks a fine lineup). Anyways:
Introducing We Are FSTVL, a brand new 15,000 capacity dance festival launching in 2013 which promises 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. Taking place on Saturday 25th May 2013, the inaugural festival will play host to over 70 acts across 10 stages and arenas over one magical day from 11am – 2.30am.
Not content with hosting an expansive world class line-up, 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, 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.
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 set to be a game-changer.
