We Out Here continues to take audiences on a comprehensive journey into the electronic world with their offering of DJs.

Founder and curator, Gilles Peterson, said; “We’re so excited to be announcing the 2021 plans for We Out Here, and are eager to safely reunite with live music once again in whatever way is possible. Festivals are a crucial part of the musical ecosystem, and we are so proud to stand by and support this majority UK based line up. Through the challenges of this year, there has also been incredible creativity, with our community coming together digitally for the 2019 edition. Next year, we can’t wait to get to work rebuilding and reuniting to do the things we love.”
Alongside the musical programme, We Out Here also presents a carefully curated programme of activities including films, talks wellbeing, discussions and discovery sessions.
