In a four-star review of Wide Awake 2023, NME wrote: “Though the festival’s “counterculture” credentials feel a little more dubious (the expensive, Brewdog-stocked bars, and various other big brand presences around the site hardly scream rebellion) it’s certainly true that Wide Awake succeeds in pulling together a completely unique bill that stands out in a very crowded field.”

Meanwhile, Young Fathers made history last month by winning their third Scottish Album of the Year award with the LP ‘Heavy, Heavy‘.

This is the first time that any artist has won the award more than twice with Young Fathers winning back in 2014 for ‘Tape Two’ and in 2018 for ‘Cocoa Sugar‘.
