Gilles Peterson’s new festival We Out Here have released a diverse line up with artists predominantly from the UK jazz and European club scene. The line up brings to life Peterson’s 6 Music radio show featuring live performances and DJ sets from artists both established and emerging.
Peterson has carefully selected artists whose work is redefining jazz. Rhythm section’s Bradley Zero, Mr Scruff and Tenderlonious will play DJ sets that twist modern preconceptions about funk, house, and jazz, while afrobeat ensemble KOKOROKO and solo instrumentalists Nubia Garcia and Moses Boyd will perform live.
The line up showcases a range of DJ sets with Detroit veteran Theo Parrish and Gilles Peterson himself taking the headline slots. The London label Whities presents Tasker b2b Minor Science and an exciting collaboration between Full Cycle’s DJ Die and Addison Groove has been announced. Objekt, Call Super, and Skee Mask, amongst others will bring the finest European techno and house to we Out here, while newcomers from the UK will also be given a platform at the festival.
Doc’n’Roll Film Festival will have a spot showing music documentaries about British subculture whilst organisations Something’ Else & Brownswood and Commune will be showcasing films and art throughout the weekend. There will also be the opportunity to browse the records and CDs brought by the Rough Trade team and the Near Mint x Discogs Record Fair. In addition to this, the Rough Trade tent will host album signings and Q&As during the festival. There are plenty of family activities on offer making We Out Here a festival suitable for children. Workshops teaching a range of skills, from printmaking and illustration to African drumming, will be provided to keep children entertained.
