We Are FSTVL recently announced further names to their 2019 line-up, including Solomun, Yungen, MK, Notion, Nina Kravitz and more. With a host of underground house, techno, electro and urban names gearing up for the May Bank Holiday, headliners include Chase & Status, Basement Jaxx, Craig David and Andy C. In addition, Ultra’s techno and house brand, Resistance was recently announced to host their very own arena for the first time at the event.
Returning for its seventh edition, We Are FSTVL is heading back to Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Upminster from 24 – 26 May 2019, bringing together artists in house, bass, techno, UK grime, and D&B.
Wez Saunders, Managing Director, Defected & Glitterbox said: “As the only partner to have been ever present at all, seven editions of We Are FSTVL, we are delighted to be returning to work, once again, with our friends at We Are FSTVL with both Defected and Glitterbox brands. Our line ups for 2019 are arguably our biggest and best at the festival to date. We cannot wait to perform on both Saturday and Sunday to a selection of the 90,000+ attendees across the weekend.”
2019 headliner and DJ/producer Andy C said: "Headlining We Are in 2018 was a huge highlight for me. It was like a homecoming and I can’t wait to do it all again in 2019!"
Following a wildly successful summer in Ibiza, which saw the 9-week residency pick up 'Best Ibiza Night' at the 2018 DJ Awards, Resistance will be heading back to Europe to host a stage during the seventh edition of the UK event.
The inaugural partnership will showcase sets by (A-Z) Adana Twins, Ben Klock, Dixon, Green Velvet, Maceo Plex, Nina Kraviz, and Solomun, with more set to be announced.
Bolstering their underground credentials, We Are FSTVL will see Yungen added to their We Are Bass stage on Sunday. With over 50 million streams on his track ‘Bestie,’ the South London MC is possibly becoming one of the hottest names on the international urban scene. He will be joining performances from James Hype, Nathan Dawe, Notion and Tom Zanetti along with recently announced Andy C, Hype & Hazard and Craig David.
Saturday 25 May will see the addition of MK, the Detroit-born house producer whose consistent innovation within the genre has seen him achieve significant commercial success throughout his career. He will be joining the likes of Camelphat, Skream, Mason Maynard and Latmun.
