The Big Outdoors - We Are ELCTRNC
Following the unprecedented sell-out success of its launch this year, We Are FSTVL is set to return to Upminster, Essex bigger and better for 2014.
Taking place over the May Bank Holiday, the festival will be expanding to two days and nights on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May and will be extending the site over two fields in Damyn’s Hall Aerodrome to allow for recently added infrastructure.
16 stages will play host to over 200 of the world’s leading dance music stars, with not one but two main stages and 20 event brand partners, including many of the previous year’s favourites and more. Having received critical acclaim for its progressive and ambitious line up for 2013, the We Are FSTVL team will be pulling out all the stops with another heavyweight line up befitting any serious international dance music event.
Production will similarly be taken up a level or three with a brand new set of stylised arenas and structures. Expect to hear more about The Tower of Light, FSTVL Avenue, Confetti Island, The Tunnel and the Pyramids over the coming months.
Important infrastructure additions will be made, with extended bars, toilets, car parking, entrance lanes and a vast transport hub being built to house a brand new national coach service, dedicated free bus to local towns as well more trains & tubes running later to aid site egress.

Download Festival took the gong for Best Major Festival on Monday 2nd December, beating the likes of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and V Festival at the UK Festival Awards that took place at London’s Roundhouse. From winning Best Line-up at last year’s awards, Download has brought rock and heavy metal music to the masses. Sheffield’s finest, Arctic Monkeys won this year’s Best Headline Performance for their mind-blowing headline set at Glastonbury. Seeing off competition from heavyweights, The Rolling Stones, Elton John and Foals, the quartet is finishing the year on a high.
