Once again we at The Idle Man HQ are teaming up with We Are FSTVL for another year to provide you with line up announcements, style advice and the opportunity to win two weekend tickets to the festival next year. Read on to find out how.
With 2018 now well and truly underway, we can all start to look forward to the festival season in the coming months. Although it might seem slightly too early to be discussing festival news, this seemed too good to miss. The guys over at one of our favourite events of the summer, We Are FSTVL, have just announced some huge new additions to this years weekend line up. Brand new stages, artists and some of the biggest names around the world in music were announced today and we can’t wait.
The line up announcements have just taken place and we could not wait any longer to tell you all of the insanity that will be taking place over the May bank holiday. The We Are FSTVL team has brought in some of the biggest and best arena stage hosts including Circoloco, Defected, Paradise, Glitterbox, ABODE and Disturbing.
The five time award winning dance music show, We Are FSTVL has grown year upon year, proving itself as one of the biggest players on the dance festival circuit since its inception in 2013. With the dawn of 2018 heralding We Are FSTVL sixth edition, the UK’s most celebrated dance festival (Best Dance Event at 2016’s UK Festival Awards) continues to grow, combining innovative stage designs and mind-blowing production with a varied mix of genres from across the dance music spectrum.
Representing a strong techno contingent for phase one, Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriati, Loco Dice, and Seth Troxler also join the star-studded bill, Drum & Bass royalty in the legend Andy C, Jump Up Superstars SASASAS and DJ EZ representing the bass heads.
After taking their FSTVL House Party to Ibiza earlier this year, We Are FSTVL will ensure the spirit and sound of the White Isle will be present and correct with the addition of DC-10’s revered club night, Circoloco. As the island’s pinnacle event series since the summer of 1999, Circoloco has since then cemented itself as one of the best party brands in the world, having played host to a selection of DJs with legendary status.
For Saturday at We Are FSTVL, they welcome regular Circoloco fixtures Seth Troxler, Jackmaster and Matthias Tanzmann along with veteran artist Joseph Capriati who recently smashed his own record with a 25 hour and 30 minute marathon DJ set.
The second mega club brand to be welcomed back to We Are FSTVL will be French trio Apollonia to provide you with the grooves you’ll need for the Sunday. They will be joined by major player Richy Ahmed, who has been systematic in pushing the UK house music sound worldwide, prolific NYC DJ and producer Danny Tenaglia will bringing more than 30 years of dance music knowledge and wisdom, whilst up-and-coming underground DJs and Paradise residents, Detlef and Latmun. The Paradise stage looks set to ensure non stop dancing throughout Sunday.
The iconic Terminal 1 stage will hold Carl Cox, Eric Prydz, and Marco Carola playing together in the UK for the first time ever. Preparations are already very much underway to extend the capacity of the stage for what will be We Are FSTVL’s biggest main stage of all time. If you thought the main stage was big last year, then this year is going to be even bigger.
Finally a strong grime presence will be provided with Mostack, Kojo Funds, Yungen, Yxng Bane and Lethal Bizzle as well as underground talent in the form of Mall Grab and TQD. 0161 native and Manchester favourite Bugzy Malone will also be heading up the grime arena, joined by internet roadman sensation Big Shaq.
On That Note
Personaly, we can’t wait for We Are FSTVL this year and with these new additions, we have a feeling it’s going to be the best year yet. Stay tuned on how you can win two weekend tickets to We Are FSTVL through The Idle Man.
