The number of arrests made at a major dance festival this year fell to its lowest since 2021.

We Are FSTVL was held at Damnys Hall Aerodrome, Upminster, over the bank holiday weekend from August 25 to 27.

Thousands flocked to the event, which was headlined by electronic music stalwarts The Prodigy. There have so far been no reports of any major incidents.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson has told the Recorder that there were more than 26 arrests made overall, one of which was in relation to an assault of an emergency worker.

The majority of these arrests - 13 in total - were made in connection with drug dealing, he said. He added that six people were arrested after they were found to be in possession of class A drugs.

Carrying a false ID reportedly led to two arrests, and one person was arrested after being caught with counterfeit currency.

Two other arrests were said to be made after assaults, and one after a minor driving offence.

The number is marginally lower than the 29 recorded last year and the 30 in 2021.

There are no further updates on the charges or bail of those arrested currently.

The festival has announced that it is set to return next year at a different time, taking place between May 24 to 26 in 2024.
