We Are Fstvl 2016 Preview
The award winning We Are Fstvl returns to Airfield Of Dreams at Damyn’s Hall, Upminster for the bank holiday weekend in May with the biggest names in electronic dance music and the World’s leading club brands and labels. 50,000 festival revellers will descend on the festival site for 2 days that will host over 200 artists including 90s beat pioneer Fatboy Slim, Steve Angello, Sub Focus and the comeback kid Craig David amongst many other huge names on the bill.
Even with the festivals rise in popularity We Are Fstvl has still remained true to their underground roots allowing for figureheads from all around the electronic scene to curate their own label-based line-ups from Sven Väth’s Cocoon outfit to Duck Sauce’s Armand Van Helden.
The festival site split into 5 mind-altering, intergalactic, stylised areas all representing the many faces of electronic music. Die-hard techno fans will flock to the WHSE District area where they can expect co2 cannons and pyrotechnics painting the sky, but beware, the festival has pre-warned visitors to wear safety goggles and hard hats before entering the Techno Warehouse (safety goggles and hard hats has become normal festival attire – long are the days of hippies and naturists). Favela Fiesta, an area born from the crazy South American bunch that arrive at the festival year after year, will host an international and eclectic line up; mind blowing visuals and explosive pyrotechnics.
Hot tubs, palm trees, tiki heads and disco balls will complete the Disco Tropics VIP area and new for 2016, the Island Hideaway for those seeking refuge from the debauchery and tomfoolery of the main stages. All the areas surround the colossal main stage known as Ancient Realm – discovered after an exhausted crew member of the We Are family unearthed what first appeared to be a rock in 2015 to something a whole lot grander…an historic masterpiece nonetheless …hmmm.
We have been part of We Are Fstvl since 2013 and this year our Hippie Van and Graffiti Taxi photo booth were positioned in the main arena and Disco Tropics VIP area – with our festival floral photo booth in the exclusive VIP area sponsored by Claire’s accessories.
