New London festival Wide Awake will kick off this September

Forced to reschedule it's inaugural year due to COVID-19 restrictions, it'll now take place on 3rd September.

Wide Awake festival has announced it’ll debut this September, after the 2020 inaugural year of the event was forced to cancel due to COVID-19 restrictions.

It’ll now take place on 3rd September 2021 at London’s Brockwell Park, with tickets from £29.50 on sale now.

The line-up includes black midi, Daniel Avery, Tinariwen, Dream Wife (pictured), Boy Harsher, Dr. Rubinstein, A Certain Ratio, Crack Cloud, Erol Alkan, Lena Willikens, The Mauskovic Dance Band, Scalping, Songhoy Blues and Tropical Fuck Storm, with more names set to be announced.

A new one day event, Wide Awake is the brainchild of some of the original founders of Field Day, and creators behind London venues MOTH Club, The Shacklewell Arms, The Waiting Room and Peckham Audio.

Marcus Weedon, Wide Awake Organiser and Founder of Jam Today comments: “We’re incredibly excited to finally be able to bring this very special show to London this September. It’s been a tough year for everyone, not least the festival and event industry, and we have been working very hard to ensure Wide Awake is brilliantly curated with the safety of everyone at the forefront. We cannot wait to open our gates and welcome both fans and artists in what is going to be an incredibly special event this year.”
