DEFECTED London FSTVL organisers expect 10,000 partygoers to descend on Central Park in Rainham Road North for the day-long event this Saturday, September 14.

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."
