Sat – Sun
Aug 6 – 7, 2022


Words can't begin to describe the magical feeling of attending a festival. The energy starts from the moment you buy your tickets. It sludges along during the months of anticipation and becomes palpable as you get ready and drive to the event. Now, imagine the festival is at a venue in London famously called the "The Airfield of Dreams." Oh yes, oh yes, the feeling intensifies.

Celebrating their 12th anniversary August 6 – 7, 2022, We Are FSTVL makes their triumphant return to the Damyns Halls Aerodome in Upminster, Essex. This hugely popular UK festival is situated on the central line, marking it as London's and the South East's largest dance music festival. Since its debut in 2013, We Are FSTVL has seen unprecedented growth. The stages have gotten significantly larger, allowing the capacity to increase dramatically. The fest's groundbreaking visual production has also improved drastically. Over the years, We Are FSTVL has won five awards, proving itself as one of the most prominent players on the dance festival circuit.

Claptone & Armand Van Helden - Live from Defected @ We Are FSTVL 2018

We Are FSTVL brings together some of the most established brands in dance music, with Defected, ABODE, and Glitterbox hosting full stage takeovers.

They've evolved into one of the United Kingdom's most popular electronic festivals. Its lineup spans multiple genres, from house and techno to garage, grime, and drum and bass. The fest will have over 70 of the greatest electronic artists across eight stages, each arena having its own distinct identity.

The festival announced phase 1 of its lineup, and it already proves that this year's music extravaganza will be its biggest yet. Phase 1 acts include chart-topping UK jewel Craig David performing his hybrid DJ and vocal TS5 concept, techno royalty Marco Carola, Desolate label founder Loco Dice, Italian sensations Joseph Capriati and Deborah de Luca, homegrown London favorite Michael Bibi, and the mythical Carl Cox. Playing alongside these impressive artists are some contemporary house and techno tastemakers such as The Blessed Madonna, Apollonia, Jamie Jones, Tale of Us, Sonny Fodera, and the New York pioneers Armand Van Helden and Jellybean Benitez. There are also the drum & bass stars Andy C, King of Rollers, High Contrast, Rudimental, Shy FX, and many more.

We Are FSTVL 2021 Highlights

There are several purchasing options for entrance into the festival. Fans can choose to attend either Saturday, Sunday, or go for the entire weekend (and unless you have pressing plans, it makes more sense to go for both days to maximize the experience). We Are FSTVL is offering a deal for a limited time – if you buy three tickets, you get the fourth one free! This kind of group deal is unheard of! Not only does it apply to general admission tickets, but also VIP tickets. So, if you appreciate the finer things in life and have at least three other friends to attend the festival with, then why not go big?

The VIP ticket comes with the expected upgraded bathrooms, shorter entry lines, and of course, a designated area for this lucky group to enjoy. However, We Are FSTVL also offers VIP ticket holders an exclusive lineup with sets that are only accessible to them. Early bird tickets are sold out, but tier one is available.
