We can now reveal the stage breakdowns for our first ever London FSTVL...

The festival’s five stages will each be hosted by a branch of our family tree – Defected, Glitterbox, Classic Music Company, 4 To The Floor and DVINE Sounds – the ground-breaking imprints that form the extended Defected Records label family.

Headlining the Defected main stage will be house pioneers Masters At Work, Claptone, Dennis Ferrer, David Penn and a host of well-loved label residents including Sam Divine and Simon Dunmore as well as live performances from India, Julie McKnight and Shovell on percussion. Disco phenomenon Glitterbox will host Dimitri From Paris, Purple Disco Machine, London legends Horse Meat Disco and more, including live appearances from label newbie Fiorious and vocal powerhouse Teni Tinks.

Defected London FSTVL stage splits

The 4 To The Floor stage will dig deeper for house gems from the likes of Todd Edwards and London legends X-Press 2, CJ Mackintosh and Heller & Farley while Classic Music Company will showcase the left-of-centre sounds of Honey Dijon, Derrick Carter, Folamour and Sophie Lloyd to name only a few. DVINE Sounds will showcase the talents of Low Steppa, Amine Edge & DANCE, label head Sam Divine of course, alongside Jess Bays, Dario D’Attis and more. You now have less than five months to plan your festival manoeuvres!

After a series of sell-out shows at Printworks and Studio 338, Defected London FSTVL will bring together over 10,000 people to showcase the very best house DJs the world has to offer. The festival marks an exciting milestone for us as we celebrate our 20th birthday this year. While we continue to tour year-around all over the world, Defected London FSTVL will celebrate our hometown, showcasing pioneers of the London dance music scene and the international acts who love to play here.
