We Are FSTVL announce huge batch of acts for 2017 line-up

Now entering its 5th year, We Are FSTVL has garnered a growing reputation as one of the UK’s most celebrated dance festivals – winning ‘Best Dance Event’ at the 2016 UK Festival Awards. The May Bank Holiday weekender takes place annually in Upminster, and features a huge diverse selection of acts, and upon announcing Phase Two of the 2017 line-up, this year looks to be no different!

Beats and bass are bolstered by the announcement with some of the boldest names in the urban world set to play the Essex stages, including Dizzee Rascal, Katy B, Giggs, and Wiley. These acts will keep with the tradition of mixing grime and garage, with drum & bass and dance, as they joined a stellar cast with the likes of Carl Cox, Duke Dumont, and Tchami already announced.

For the first time at FSTVL, camping shall be available from the Friday, with five special ‘We Are House Party’ sessions set up to match the main stages. Legendary Ibiza superclub Space will be hosting their own arena at the event, as will UK house label DEFECTED, whilst D&B brand UKF will bring the best in heavy beats and bass.

Tickets for this huge weekend are already selling out fast with the final release of Phase Two tickets now on sale, so don’t miss out on this must-attend event! Tickets, as well as the full line-up can be viewed here on the official We Are FSTVL website.
