Defected is set to host its first ever FSTVL in the capital this September at Central Park in East London. Defected London FSTVL aims to celebrate the best in house music from the UK and beyond, inspired by its array of sub-labels. Taking place on Saturday 14 September 2019, the one day event will feature five outdoor stages, hosted by the brand’s label imprints; The Defected stage, Glitterbox, Classic Music Company, 4 To the Floor and Dvine Sounds.
Established 20 years ago, the event marks a milestone for the brand as it celebrates its 20th birthday this year. The independent label has been at the forefront of the house music scene globally, with over 600+ singles released to date producing some of dance music’s biggest tracks. It has also been at the forefront of modern club-culture through its nights at London clubs, Ibiza, Croatia and across the world.
Owner and founder of Defected Records, Simon Dunmore, said: "London is our heartland and we wanted to stick our flag firmly in the ground on home turf. The cultural and musical diversity in our city grows ever stronger and we are proud to bring people together through music. With it being our 20th anniversary this year, it just felt like the right moment to do our first London festival.”
