Wide Awake festival will take place on 5 June in South London’s Brockwell Park.

Lena Willikens, The Comet is Coming, black midi, Daniel Avery, Girl Band, Goat Girl and more have been announced to play the inaugural Wide Awake festival in London. Taking place on 5 June, the new festival, organised by the teams behind venues such as MOTH Club and The Shacklewell Arms, seeks to promote a mixture of both band-led live music and electronic artists.

Wide Awake will also promote sustainable eco-activities during the festival with a ban on single-use plastics, a commitment to ethically sourced food and commitment to use only biodegradable stage effects and recycle all trader and back-of-house waste.

Further acts are due to be announced soon.
