This weekend saw us at the world class WE ARE FSTVL in London’s Upminster and boy did they come through. For two days the crowd were kept rocking by a roster of artists that truly brought the heat, both in sunshine and in vibes.

Over more than 5 main stages and countless offshoots, the choice of music was endless. Whether it was Basement Jaxx bringing the old school anthems, Duke Dumont warming us up for Ibiza or Giggs sending us wild on that Batman bar, the vibes were set.

Craig David never fails to amaze with his half DJ/half vocal TS5 and had everyone at Terminal 1 chanting his hits. Marc Kinchen even gave us time to reflect on the recent atrocity in Manchester, by releasing hundreds of red balloons as a symbol of rememberence during his set.

The sun kept shining and the people kept coming, an endless sea of revellers gave the place a feel of a small city and we must say the organisation of the whole thing was on point. Regular buses took everyone from the main station down and waiting times were kept to a minimal. No one wants to hang about in a queue for longer than required and WE ARE FSTVL made sure to keep it moving.

Not only was the music lit, the style was just as impressive. Everyone took it as an opportunity to either strip down.. or dress to impress in festival ready attire. We at STOA, of course never leave the house without swag and this weekend was no different. Check our IG to see what we had on.

Well We Are FSTVL, what can we say.. you well and truly kicked STOA’s festival season off in style.

We are looking forward to creating more content as the summer festival season rolls on.
