London all-dayer Wide Awake has cancelled 2020's event

London all-dayer Wide Awake has cancelled 2020's event.

The festival was set to take place at Brockwell Park on 5th June, with sets from Metronomy, BEAK>, Black Country, New Road, Squid, The Murder Capital and loads more.

A statement explains: "Due to the continued spread of Coronavirus and the current public health crisis, unfortunately we have to confirm Wide Awake has been cancelled this year. We support any decision taken in order to avoid additional pressure being placed on both The Health and Emergency Services whilst these organisations continue fighting on behalf of us all on the frontline of the crisis. So whilst we are unable to go ahead with this year’s debut event be assured, we will be back."

"United through an honest love of music," they add, "the Wide Awake collaborators will be looking at alternate ways to play host to live/live streamed shows in the coming months to support the Wide Awake artists - watch this space."
