Wide Awake festival booker and co-founder Keith Miller said in a statement: “There’s a feeling amongst us all at Wide Awake that the 2023 lineup is the most varied and interesting so far. Osees and Ty Segall are the types of catalysts that inspire a generation.

“We’re lucky enough to also have the next gen with Glass Beams, Σstella and a whole cohort of brilliant new acts we know you’ll all become massive fans of. And A Place To Bury Strangers represent everything about DIY music and that ethic. Wide Awake evolved out of a warehouse festival they played and we cannot wait to have them back,” he said.

“The best thing? This is just the first announcement. We’ve got plenty more we’re really excited to share with you.”


NME‘s Ben Jolley reviewed this year’s festival, praising in a four-star review its “mix of new names and electronic dons” for making “another stellar line-up in the capital”.
