See you next May in Brockwell Park

Wide Awake, South London’s best festival for leftfield music, is back for 2023. It’s becoming a bit of an institution in Brockwell Park, and it’s only getting stronger, with the first wave of acts confirmed for next year including Gilla Band, OSEES, Ty Segall, Arooj Aftab, A Place To Bury Strangers, Sunset Rollercoaster and more.

It’s all happening on Saturday 27 May 2023 at Brockwell Park in South London. Tickets are available now at an early bird rate – grab yours now before the price goes up.

Here’s the complete lineup for 2023 so far: Erol Alkan, A Place To Bury Strangers, Arooj Aftab, Habibi Funk, Sunset Rollercoaster, Gilla Band, Lebanon Hanover, OSEES, Ty Segall, Glass Beams, Madmadmad and Σtella. There’ll be loads more to come.

We’ve had a great time at Wide Awake before – check out our coverage from 2022 and 2021 for a flavour of what it’s like to experience the festival.
