“It was like a homecoming and I can’t wait to do it all again in 2019,” he said.

Event director Reece Miller said: “Following a record-breaking 2018, the British festival industry witnessed one of the greatest summers in its history.

“We Are FSTVL was fortunate enough to be one of those that had a great event with our largest ever attendance to date.

“We look forward to We Are FSTVL 2019 for our seventh edition, lucky number seven, where we’ve taken our time to construct our greatest, latest, biggest and best line-up of all time.

“The team at We Are HQ have two unbelievable new world exclusive stage arena concepts that will be showcased for the first time ever on our beloved Airfield of Dreams.

“We can’t wait to get cracking. Your summer starts right here.”
