The sun is out and London’s 2024 summer festival season is officially underway. This weekend three festivals will be taking over south London’s Brockwell Park: after Project 6 comes Wide Awake, an indie festival boasting a huge variety of names spread across all kinds of rock, pop and electronic music (the third Brockwell fest this weekend is Sunday’s Cross the Tracks).

Wide Awake is described as ‘one of London’s most forward-thinking and well-curated festivals’ – and this year, as always, it lives up to that billing. It’s headlined by Aussie psych legends King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, UK shoegazers Slowdive and Scottish arty-pop/hip-hop group Young Fathers. 

This year’s Wide Awake is shaping up to be the festival’s hugest edition yet. If you’re planning on going along (or would like to buy a ticket), here’s everything you need to know – from stage splits to the weather.
