We Out Here Festival Returns for 2024

We Out Here Festival, the brainchild of renowned curator Gilles Peterson, is set to return for its fifth edition from August 15th to 18th, 2024. Nestled in the picturesque setting of Wimborne St Giles, Dorset, this year’s event promises an unparalleled fusion of musical genres and artistic expression.

Headlining the festival are two powerhouse acts: André 3000, following the release of his innovative flute-led album ‘New Blue Sun’, and the soulful virtuoso Sampha. These top-billing artists set the tone for a lineup that spans the spectrum of contemporary music.

With over 100 acts now announced, We Out Here continues its tradition of musical diversity. Hip-hop enthusiasts can look forward to performances from the likes of Black Thought and CASISDEAD, while electronic music fans will be treated to sets from Floating Points, Joy Orbison, and drum and bass pioneer LTJ Bukem.

Jazz, a cornerstone of the festival, is well-represented with performances by the legendary Dee Dee Bridgewater and the rising Moses Yoofee Trio. The addition of poet and performer Kae Tempest adds a captivating lyrical dimension to the programme.

We Out Here isn’t just about the music – it’s an immersive experience. The festival features a variety of specially curated spaces, including the dynamic Rhythm Corner, the intimate Lemon Lounge, and the tranquil Sanctuary relaxation area. For those seeking enlightenment beyond the beats, there’s a talks tent offering engaging discussions on various topics.

This year’s edition also celebrates significant milestones in the music industry, including the 10th anniversary of London imprint Wisdom Teeth, marked by a special back-to-back set from Facta and K-Lone.

As Peterson himself puts it, this lineup might be their “most wide-spanning and eclectic yet.” For music lovers seeking an adventure that stretches far beyond the mainstream, We Out Here is not just a festival – it’s a pilgrimage.
