We Are Fstvl 2014 – Sat Review [Review]

We Are Fstvl took place over the bank holiday weekend of May 24th-25th.  Based in Upminster in Essex, the festival is only in it’s second year. The first day after checking into the hotel and getting to the site we arrived around 4pm, with the sky filled with clouds and rain about to descend we weren’t going to let that ruin our fun. The site itself for the festival had got increasingly bigger, and so it seemed had the VIP where you could go and relax and pamper yourself with MK taking over in the tent.

I spent a lot of my time in the Hospitality tent on the Saturday. Being a D&B fan I got to see some of the best DJ’s play everything from liquid to jump up. I was especially excited to see Shy FX, Friction, High Contrast and Camo & Krooked who played tune after tune mixing in some Grime tunes in the middle such as ‘German Whip’.

I ventured over to Defected In The House too who were really successful at the festival last year made a return where we sam Kenny Dope, Nick Curly, Sam Divine and more spin to a happy and packed crowd. Oliver $’s and Guti got a really good crowd reaction over at Defected.

The two outdoor stages were not affected by the rain and mud as festival goers could not miss the big names headlining at the Big Outdoors – We Are Elctrnc and the Main Stage. We Are Elctrnc saw the likes of Knife Party, Chuckie, Hard Rock Sofa and more take to the stage and make everyone forget about the miserable weather.

The main stage saw brothers Disclosure who have shot to fame play an early set along with heavyweight in the game, Mary Jane Coles. The headline acts Richie Hawtin and Matador closed the main stage leaving the festival goers smiling and ready for day two.
