After a mega edition in 2021, Wide Awake Festival is coming back to Brockwell Park even bigger and better for 2022. Not only are the dates shifting to the May Bank Holiday, the fest is doubling up to two days. There’ll be an emphasis on electronica on the Friday, with Bicep headlining and the likes of Caribou, Optimo, Leon Vynehall, and Working Mens Club also hitting the stages. Primal Scream will be topping the bill for Saturday, playing their seminal album Screamadelica in full, with Fat White Family, The Horrors, Connan Mockasin, Fatoumata Diawara, Faye Webster, Floating Points, Kevin Morby, Overmono, The Comet Is Coming, Yard Act, Amyl & The Sniffers, Curses, Nation of Language and more also playing.
Wide Awake’s Positive Policy, which helps change the way live music events impact the environment by banning ban single-use plastics, providing eco-toilets and ethically sourced food, and only permitting biodegradable stage effects, will be implemented for 2022 as well.
Fri 27th & Sat 28th May 2022
