We Out Here is set to go out there, as the festival reveals its new location for 2023.

Since its first edition in 2019, Gilles Peterson’s festival has been hosted at Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire — the same site as the now-revived Secret Garden Party.

However today, the festival has announced that it will be moving across the South coast to Wimborne St Giles in Dorset.

The festival has also revealed dates, running across August 10-14 2023.

We Out Here’s new home features 400 acres of parkland filled with nature on the grounds of St Giles House.

The grounds feature a seven-acre lake, access to the River Allen and a slew of hidden woodland spots perfect for small stages.

Wimborne St Giles is 20 minutes from Salisbury by car and just over an hour away via a regular train service.

We Out Here will run shuttles from Sailsbury train station to the new site, along with the option of travelling via coach from major cities of the UK.

At this year’s We Out Here, the line-up included the likes of, KOKOROKO, Overmono, Emma-Jean Thackray, SHERELLE, Goldie and Gilles Peterson himself.

Tickets will be going on exclusively to prior We Out Here attendees on October 19.
