If you thought the perfect small London day festival didn’t exist, think again. This hidden gem is about to blow your minds with environmental integrity, an awe-inspiring range of acts and a great sense of community. With a polite 50/50 gender balance on their line-up Wide Awake is more than just getting out of bed for gender equality too. Catch the action on Saturday May 27 at Brockwell park.

It won the Best Small Festival award at the BandLab NME Awards 2022. And 2023 is set to be another belter with Caroline Polachek, Shygirl, Black Country, New Road, Coucou Chloe, Jockstrap and Joy Orbison joining the ranks of over 40 acts gracing seven stages. Last year stages were a very short and easy walk away making it ideal to catch all the action. Not only physically close knit, but this festival is also emotionally close knit too – so much so that one of the main stage acts Viagra Boys have previously crashed at festival director Keith’s now notorious garden shed – coming in as the second band to do so, the first being the iconic Amyl and The Sniffers. Founders of the festival Bad Vibrations and LNZRT are behind the great totems to music MOTH Club and The Shacklewell Arms too, making them important scenesters and scheduling first class wizards of the underground. What more could you want?

Environmentally, Wide Awake are keeping their eyes trained on the material products of running a festival – that means a promise to leave no trace behind: no litter, no landfill, just a squeaky-clean park to enjoy. Additionally single-use plastic is banned, biodegradable stage effects are being deployed and food will be ethically sourced. All waste from traders will be recycled too. Hands clean, we are left to enjoy the day and night with no eco-anxiety as we party on down at this high-flying mini festival. See you in the crowd.
