London’s premier festival for alternative sounds is back in Brockwell Park next year, and they’ve just announced a ridiculously good new wave of acts for the 2023 lineup. Joining the already-announced likes of Gilla Band and OSEES at Wide Awake will be hyperpop genius Caroline Polachek, leftfield techno wizard Daniel Avery, pioneering producer Oneohtrix Point Never and experimental club artist Shygirl. It’s all happening on 27 May 2023 in South London. Tickets are on sale right now.
