London’s Wide Awake festival has announced new additions to their 2024 lineup, including big names such as Young Fathers, Squid, Ben UFO and Helena Hauff

Wide Awake takes place in Brockwell Park on 25 May. Featuring a wide mix of genres from post-punk to pop to electronic, the festival tends to showcase up and coming music that has just broken through. The festival also prides itself with line-ups that have an equal gender split and 2023 saw it work further on a sustainable ‘Positive Policy’, which was set up to change the way live music events affect the planet.

The new lineup announcements include Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers, UK post-punk favourites Squid, beloved DJs Ben UFO and Helena Hauff, electronic pop legend Alice Glass, and Australian rockers C.O.F.F.I.N

Also new to the bill are The Babe Rainbow, The Dare, Decius, Etran De L’air, Crumb, Eartheater, Upchuck, and YHWH Nailgun to name a few, with yet more electronica and experimental pop artists still to be announced. 

The new acts join the recently announced headliners King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
