The Horrors, Sorry and Dream Wife are among a host of new bands added to the second edition of London’s Wide Awake festival.

The festival, which debuted last September in a one-day event in Brockwell Park featuring IDLES, Shame and more, will return over two days later this year.

Wide Awake 2022 was first announced in December last year with headline sets coming from Bicep and Primal Scream (performing ‘Screamadelica’ in full), while other acts performing include Caribou, Working Men’s Club, Yard Act, Chubby and the Gang, Fat White Family and loads more.

Now, a host of new bands have been added to the event, which runs across May 27th-28th in Brockwell Park.

See the full list of added names below.

Reviewing the debut edition of Wide Awake, DIY wrote: "A sense of joy is palpable as the sun beats down on South London."
