A popular festival has been crowned the UK’s Best Dance Event.

We Are FSTVL, which attracted 25,000 festival-goers this year, won the prize at last night’s UK Festival Awards ceremony.

This comes as the festival, which is held in Upminster, saw record-breaking ticket sales in the lead up to its fifth edition due to take place between May 26 and 28, 2017.

A spokeswoman for the festival organisers said: “We’re extremely proud and humbled to be picking up our fifth award in four years with last night’s Best Dance Music Festival accolade at last night’s UK Festival Awards.

“We’d like to thank the hundreds of thousands of people that voted around the world, the countless huge support we receive from the best fans in the business and the great local residents, council, authorities and agencies that make this show very special. This award is for you all.” This year, We Are FSTVL announced camping facilities for the first time and teamed up with Pop UP Hotel, Tangerine Fields and Morning Gloryville to offer a range of glamping and more modest sleeping options.

The first acts of this year’s line-up have already been announced with Wiley, Armand Van Helden, Basement Jaxx, Carl Cox, Dixon, Duke Dumont, Hannah Wants, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, MK, Wilkinson, Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Solomun, Sven Vath and The Martinez Brothers confirmed.

Headlining acts are due to be announced next year.
