We Are FSTVL Causes Chaos For Upminster

It was a story for two tales, including superb DJ performances and transport carnage for what is now the biggest two day dance festival in the United Kingdom. Upminster, Essex played host to over 200 DJ’s at We Are FSTVL’s third year, but it ended with a bitter taste as thousands of festival-goers were left stranded in what has been described as “something from a horror film” after its transport systems failed on Saturday night.We Are FSTVL 2015

The fairly inexperienced festival organisers have apologised to all those caught up in the chaotic scenes which were caused by a lack of taxis and overcrowded shuttle buses. Party people decided to walk along narrow country lanes to depart the site, causing massive safety fears. The site was situated around 2 miles from the closest train station in Upminster.

Unfortunately, the nature of the incident caused fights and saw people injured.

A spokeswomen for the festival has said: “We are extremely disappointed by the issues of Saturday night which meant customers had a very frustrating end to what had been a very good day overall and apologise to those frustrated by the traffic issues. We amend and improve our transport plans every year and this year will be no different.”

Some of the world’s biggest electronic artists headlined various stages at the festival, including Steve Aoki, Knife Party, Steve Angello, Carl Cox, Loco Dice and many more, putting on a spectacle for the adoring English fans. Those who made it to the main stage for closing sets were gifted to an array of fireworks and pyrotechnics that rivalled festivals all around Europe.

If the festival can come back with a safer and guaranteed transport system, their 2016 edition of We Are FSTVL will be sure to continue in growth and be a fantastic event.
