We Out Here Festival announces new home and new dates for 2023

The idyllic site at Wimborne St Giles is located 20 minutes outside of Salisbury...

Following the success of We Out Here’s spectacular third edition back in August, today the festival announces its brand new home in Wimborne St Giles, Dorset for its anticipated 2023 return.

The Gilles Peterson-curated festival is excited to embark on a new chapter in an idyllic new site; unfurling within 400 acres of lush parkland in the South-West of England. Having previously taken place in Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire for the last three editions, We Out Here is giving its audience a new nature-filled sanctuary to escape, unwind and explore together for 4 days. 

Located 20 minutes west of Salisbury, St Giles’s grounds consist of a vast wooded parkland through which the River Allen flows, feeding a seven-acre lake in the heart of the site. A seemingly perfect destination to switch off from the outside world and become immersed in We Out Here’s live offering and family atmosphere, other features of the site include acres of woodland walks and tucked away fields, 1000-yard avenues of Beech, and hidden forest clearings primed to explore the music within.

As well revealing its new home, the festival is also announcing a new set of dates for next summer. The forthcoming edition will now take place 10-14th August 2023, 2 weeks earlier in the calendar than this year’s August bank holiday dates.

The festival will run regular shuttles from the train station to new site, as well as coach travel from major cities around the UK. 

2023 tickets will be going on-sale exclusively to prior We Out Here attendees, on Wednesday October 19. The festival line up will be announced early next year.
