Speaking about the festival, Andy C said: "We Are Fstvl 2018 will be like a homecoming for me. It’s the area where I grew up, went to school and still live today.

"My first ever rave experience at 13 years old was held in a derelict barn about half a mile from the festival site! This is where it all started for me and I can’t wait to perform at a show of this magnitude on my own doorstep.”

More acts from the 300-strong line-up will be announced later in the year.

We Are FSTVL 2018 takes place from May 26 to May 28 in Upminster's Damys Hall Aerodrome. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased here
