Defected Records has announced details of its first ever UK festival, set to take place this September.
Masters At Work, Honey Dijon, Derrick Carter, Horse Meat Disco, Dimitri From Paris, Dennis Ferrer, Todd Terry and Sam Divine are amongst the first DJs confirmed to be playing at the one-day event. The 10,000-capacity festival will take place at east London's Central Park and will spread the lineup across five stages.
Defected London FSTVL, which takes place on September 14th, is the latest in a series of events organised to mark the label's 20th anniversary.
"London is our heartland and we wanted to stick our flag firmly in the ground on home turf," says label founder SImon Dunmore. "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."
