We Out Here has finalised its 2023 line-up and revealed a handful of new stages set to debut next month in the festival’s new location in Dorset.

From August 10 – 14, We Out Here heads down to a new 400-acre countryside location of Wimborne St Giles in Dorset for its next edition after three years in Cambridgeshire.

Over 300 artists have been added to this year’s line-up, which this year includes Ezra Collective, Knucks, Róisín Murphy, Nia Archives, and Blackstar topping the bill.

In a finalised version of the line-up, new names added include Illa J, Steam Down, Blue Lab Beats, P Money, and more, across the festival’s four days, fusing jazz, grime, soul, electronic, and beyond.

“Just one month to go until we’re back together again for We Out Here, it’s exciting to share the long list of great talent we have performing across the weekend,” says Gilles Peterson, founder of We Out Here.

“Bonafide legends and some of the most exciting emerging talent. Can’t wait to see the whole community come together again and welcome everyone to our new home!”

We Out Here has also revealed a slew of new stages heading to its Dorset location this year, as well as the comeback of its roller rink which is set to become a dancefloor by night.

This year, We Out Here is partnering with Liverpool’s Melodic Distraction radio broadcasting live from the site all weekend, while Near Mint Record Store will be up and running selling vinyl from independent labels and stores.

Another new addition, the Blue Moon Cafe, will make space for ambient sounds in a new chill-out area. The new site, which also features a lake similar to its old location, will include a new sanctuary space with soothing selections.
