DEFECTED London FSTVL will bring together over 10,000 people to showcase the best house DJs that make the London label an enduring authority in dance music.

Established in London 20 years ago, the event marks an exciting milestone for DEFECTED as it celebrates its 20th birthday this year. While DEFECTED events continue to tour year-around all over the world, DEFECTED London FSTVL will celebrate the label’s hometown, showcasing pioneers of the London dance music scene; Ivor Novello winners X-Press 2, ex-Ministry Of Sound resident and mix maestro CJ Mackintosh and prolific producers and label heads Heller & Farley represent London’s dance music history of the last 35 years.

This 2019 one-day FSTVL is gearing up to be the perfect summer closing party in the UK’s capital with some of the world’s most respected house DJs.

Owner and Founder of DEFECTED Records, Simon Dunmore, said: “London is our heartland and we wanted to stick our flag firmly in the ground on home turf. The cultural and musical diversity in our city grows ever stronger and we are proud to bring people together through music.  With it being our 20th anniversary this year, it just felt like the right moment to do our first London festival.”
