Gilles Peterson launches We Out Here, his first UK festival

A four-day Worldwide Family Gathering in Cambridgeshire.

Gilles Peterson, Worldwide FM and Brownswood Recordings have announced a new UK festival running from Thursday 15th – Sunday 18th August 2019. We Out Here takes its name from the 2018 Brownswood compilation that’s become a calling card for the recent UK jazz renaissance, so the forthcoming lineup will no doubt be full of its contributors. Billed as a festival for clubbers and families, the programme promises to cover the full breadth of DJ and live talent that orbits Gilles’ universe, with the community values of its creators at its core.

We Out Here builds on Gilles’ annual summer and winter festivals in France, as well as the London awards evening to become his first UK festival adventure and biggest live music project to date.

Location and lineup will be announced 6th February. Sign-up for pre-sale tickets at the We Out Here website.

Watch Gilles unpack the impact of Lonnie Liston Smith’s album Expansions.
