A stellar cast, including André 3000, Black Thought, and Sampha, is set to grace the We Out Here festival, as announced by NME. Scheduled to run from August 15 to August 18, the festival is primed to unfold in the coastal county of Dorset, within the village of Wimborne St. Giles. Spearheaded by renowned DJ and record label owner Gilles Peterson, the event is lauded as an “award-winning weekender” and will showcase performances by other luminaries such as Louie Vega, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Gilles Peterson expressed his excitement on Instagram, stating, “We at @weoutherefest are overjoyed to share our most wide-spanning program yet; threading together some of the world’s most important musical pioneers, emerging talent, and some incredibly special performances.” Peterson teased additional announcements and highlighted the return of popular festival features like the Lemon Lounge, Love Dancin, Brawnswood & Hennessy Corner, along with family and wellness programs, the Talks Tent, Record Store, and lake swimming, promising an unforgettable weekend.

The anticipation for André 3000’s performance is palpable, with fans eagerly wondering if he will revisit his OutKast days or focus on tracks from his critically acclaimed album, New Blue Sun.

While the festival is expected to showcase diverse musical experiences, rapper Tony Yayo expressed his desire to see André 3000 return to his roots and deliver the iconic rap style that gained him acclaim. Yayo suggested that New Blue Sun didn’t resonate as expected because fans, including himself, were anticipating the classic OutKast-style raps. Despite differing opinions on the artistic direction, Yayo acknowledged André 3000’s uniqueness and significance in crossing over in the Atlanta rap scene. The debate continues on whether fans prefer the artist playing the flute or spitting classic rhymes, but one thing is clear – the We Out Here festival promises an eclectic mix of musical performances and experiences for attendees to cherish.
