Wide Awake is coming to Brockwell Park in June
Wide Awake is a new one-day festival coming to London, and it takes place on Friday 5 June 2020.
Their promise is to bring together a mix of “leftfield indie, post punk, electronica, techno and jazz.”
There’s a taste of all that in their first line-up announcement. Performers include (alphabetically): black midi, The Comet Is Coming, Crack Cloud, Daniel Avery, Drab Majesty, Dream Wife, Girl Band, Goat Girl, Lena Willikens, Los Bitchos, The Mauskovic Dance Band, Minimal Violence, Proteus, Shame, Sheer Mag, Snapped Ankles and Surfbort.
More will be announced in the coming months too.
Early bird tickets are currently a very reasonable £27.50, and they’re on sale right now.
Importantly the unveiling of the festival also comes with a green, sustainable manifesto. For example, Wide Awake have committed to a ban on single use plastic across the site, use only ethically-sourced food vendors and only allow biodegradable stage effects.
Marcus Weedon is the festival’s director, he says: “We’re thrilled to be putting on an event with an ethos that doesn’t really exist at an outdoor festival in London at the moment.”
