Gilles Peterson present first edition of We Out Here Festival
If you have no plans for the weekend, I have one for you. The best festival line up this summer, with wicked sound, fresh and popping live bands and DJs, mixing everything this website ate for dinner: jazz, soul, funk, reggae, afrobeat, electronic, bass, etc
Tomorrow, Gilles Peterson, Worldwide FM, and Brownswood Recordings present their first ever UK festival: We Out Here, a Worldwide Family Gathering.
For the first edition of their brand new festival, Gilles Peterson curates an absolutely stellar lineup. Spanning jazz, soul, house, disco, funk and much more, it features a mix of talented DJs and refreshing live acts sure to blend beautifully with the dreamy Cambridgeshire setting.
Festival takes its name from the 2018 Brownswood ‘We Out Here’ compilation that’s become a calling card for the recent UK jazz renaissance, so the forthcoming lineup will no doubt be full of its contributors. Billed as a festival for clubbers and families, the program promises to cover the full breadth of DJ and live talent that orbits Gilles’ universe, with the community values of its creators at its core.
This event builds on Gilles’ annual summer and winter festivals in France, as well as the London awards evening to become his first UK festival adventure and biggest live music project to date. The Wicked Sound wishes them a great success.
