Broadcaster, DJ and label head Gilles Peterson has announced that he will be hosting a new music festival called We Out Here in August.
The new festival sees Peterson teaming up with Brownswood and Worldwide FM for the 4-day event that will run from 15th – 18th August, in Cambridgeshire.
Taking its name from Brownswood’s stunning compilation celebrating London’s young jazz scene which featured the likes of Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective, Joe-Armon Jones, and Nubya Garcia and we’re hoping a few of those artist will be performing at the festival.
“What’s amazing about the scene here is that there’s so much legacy as well so much future” says Peterson “It really is about bringing all that together on one amazing site.”
We Out Here will be the third festival from Peterson, who also curates the Worldwide Festivals in France (Sète) and Switzerland (Leysin).
