We Out Here 2023 is here! This weekend the legendary jazz festival will be taking place at its new home in Wimbourne St Giles, Dorset (10 -14 August). More info can be found here.

The scope of acts has grown this year as the festival celebrates 50 years of hip-hop, with Blackstar, Mos Def and Talib Kweli heading the anniversary.

Major names and upcoming acts, including Roisin Murphy, Ezra Collective, Knucks, Nubya Garcia and Sun Ra Arkestra, will headline alongside many many other acts, DJ sets and events.

The festival is officially sold out, but the organisers have urged you to check out their site for ticket returns.

This could be your final chance to bag a ticket for what promises to be a scorching weekend of pure jazz vibes, soulful soundscapes, classic hip hop and rap in beautiful new surroundings.

Check the official website for info on accommodation, tickets, and everything else you need to know for a beautiful sun-drenched bliss out in the sticks. I can’t think of anywhere else I would rather be. To quote Omar, “There’s nothing like this.”
