Wide Awake Festival 2023 has revealed its first line-up announcement, with a diverse range of artists across several leftfield genres.

The diverse London event debuted in September 2021, and its third single-day celebration will be held in Brockwell Park on May 27th, 2023. 

Quickly establishing itself as a unique tastemaker, and previously featuring Shame, Black Country New Road, Yard Act, Sorry and many more, Wide Awake was created from a fusion of some of Field Day’s original founders and the minds behind some of London’s most iconic, small music venues (MOTH club, The Shacklewell Arms).

The new announcement has attached the explosive garage-punk band Osees, Ty Segall’s psych-influenced rock, Taiwanese act Sunset Rollercoaster, and Irish noise rockers Gilla Band amongst many others.

Although more waves of artists will be announced in due course, you can see the current bill below:

Wide Awake Festival Booker & Co-Founder, Keith Miller, has said: “There’s a feeling amongst us all at Wide Awake that the 2023 lineup is the most varied and interesting so far. Osees and Ty Segall are the types of catalysts that inspire a generation. “

“We’re lucky enough to also have the next gen with Glass Beams, Estella and a whole cohort of brilliant new acts we know you’ll all become massive fans of,” he continues. “And A Place To Bury Strangers represent everything about DIY music and that ethic. Wide Awake evolved out of a warehouse festival they played and we cannot wait to have them back.”

“The best thing? This is just the first announcement. We’ve got plenty more we’re really excited to share with you.”

The ambitious counter-culture takeover champions independence and also enforces a range of forward-thinking environmental policies, as per previous years.

Tickets for Wide Awake Festival 2023 are available now.
