Organisers of We Are FSTVL have recently announced dates for their upcoming 10th anniversary in August 2023, along with some significant growth plans.

To mark the milestone, the UK dance music festival is expanding from a two to three day event, and will showcase twice as many arenas as usual (8 in total), whilst also adding a dedicated camping village zone called ‘Neighbourhood’.

The team are promising the ‘most epic edition yet’ to wrap the summer of 2023, where festival-goers can expect one of the best audio-visual productions in the industry.

We Are FSTVL is usually curated by a number of industry-leading dance music brands such as Defected, Ibiza’s Circoloco, bassjam, and others, offering up an electronic mix of house, techno, garage, grime, bass music and drum & bass.

Whilst there’s no line-up for next year yet, 2022 acts included The Blessed Madonna, Deborah de Luca, Loco Dice, Michael Bibi, Jamie Jones, The Martinez Brothers, Armand Van Helden, Patrick Topping, Craig David, Carl Cox, Artful Dodger, DJ Luck + MC Neat, Andy C …and loads more.

Tickets & essential info

We Are FSTVL 2023 will take place at Damyns Hall Aerodrome in Upminster, Essex in London. Due to the expansion, the new calendar dates are now August 25th – 27th 2023 (2 days / 3 nights), scheduled over bank holiday weekend in the UK.

As we write this, tickets are about to go on general sale. For more information visit their website here.
