Taking place this Saturday and Sunday at the Field of Dreams at Upminster’s Damyns Hall Aerodrome, it promises to be a weekend packed with the best in energising dance music.

The Main stage will see superstars Carl Cox, Steve Angelo, Gorgon City, Seth Troxler and many more working the decks over the May weekend. With a total of eight stages pumping out the best electronic music, from thumping house hits to drum and bass bangers in the hospitality tent.

VIP ticket holders can enjoy the likes of MK and Mark Knight in the VIP Village on Sunday, who returns after a stellar set last year.

Taking advantage of the explosion of quality street food and pop-up restaurants across London and the south east in recent years, We Are’s street market will be serving a range of world cuisines across breakfast, lunch and dinner to hungry music fans.

Karl Peppitt, who went to the festival last year, said: “It’s great having such a fantastic line-up on my doorstep.

“Last year Fatboy Slim finished off the weekend with one of the best performances I have ever seen.

“I’m really excited to see what the festival brings this year.”

At the time of going to press, Saturday tickets were close to selling out, with a limited amount remaining for the Sunday also. For full details visit
