We Out Here festival has announced its first-wave line-up this morning.
The Gilles Peterson co-curated festival, which is in partnership with his label Brownswood and radio station Worldwide FM, is returning for its second edition. The four-day event, which runs from the 20th until the 23rd of August, brandishes an exciting multi-genre lineup.
At the head of the lineup is the legendary saxophonist Archie Shepp - who will be performing with a big band. Further jazz-orientated billings include Detroit's Underground Resistance, London's bastion group Ezra Collective, rising star Greentea Peng as well as the energetic collective Steam Down.
As part of the electronic offering at the festival, highly respected producer Floating Points will be performing all night long in the forest as well as the much-loved DJ Mr. Scruff plus DJs of the moment such as Josey Rebelle.
The festival will also sport rising talent, with artists such as Kinkai, Numb Mob, Kiddus, Iman Houssein and Waldo's Gift all performing.
