About Us

“I really wanted to bring to the UK a festival that celebrates the elements of UK club culture, and the community that surrounds it, that I have been lucky enough to be a part of over the years.” – Gilles Peterson

Having taken our name from the 2018 Brownswood compilation; a calling card for London’s bright-burning young jazz scene, We Out Here Festival sees integral members of the movement alongside legendary icons, genre-spanning DJs and young improvisers alike for four days of music in one of the UK’s most beautiful, landscaped festival sites.

Joining the musical dots between soul, hip hop, house, afro, electronica, jazz and beyond, we showcase both outstanding live music and some of the best record collections in the world. We also place an emphasis on high quality food and drink offerings, arts and cultural offerings, crisp sound and production, family activities and wellness: all to compliment quality-led musical curation. 

Come join us for a Worldwide Family Gathering in the heart of Cambridgeshire this August.

SITE ACCESS AND PARKING

We Out Here is held at Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire. The site is a farmland site with varying topography and ground conditions so an all-terrain wheelchair or pushchair will be required.

All routes in and out of venues, campsites, and various areas of the site will be wide enough for wheelchair access, however there are areas of the site with limited access due to slopes and rough ground. Stewards will be available to assist as far as possible. 

We are predominantly an open-air event and weather conditions can dramatically affect the ground conditions, so make sure to check the forecast ahead and consider preparations you may need to make and any extra equipment that may be necessary.

Accessibility parking will be next to accessible camping and check in with an easy route into the festival for all accessible customers. Insert link to customer map with clear illustration of location of accessible camping / parking / check-in. 

Parking can be booked, free of charge, by emailing us on info@weoutherefestival.com

If you are being dropped off, the accessible car park will also act as a drop off point for customers wishing to check in via accessible check-in.

Signs and staffing will direct you to the right place.

ACCESSIBLE CAMPING

Accessible camping will be next to accessible parking with an easy route into the festival for all accessible customers. Insert link to customer map with clear illustration of location of accessible camping / parking / check-in.

The accessible campsite welcomes tents and live-ins. Group sizes are limited to 6 people. If you are a group larger than 6, you are welcome to use the facilities of the accessible campsite, but will need to camp in the general camping area. If you plan to bring your live-in, please email us so we can ensure we have plenty of space for your requirements. Please note that you will not be able to park your car within the campsite due to H&S regulations.

There will be a wheelchair charging point, wheelchair accessible toilet and wheelchair accessible shower available. 

The accessible campsite is monitored by festival staff to ensure it remains a calm and quiet space where those with access requirements can feel at home and take a break from the festival as needed.

Please email us on info@weoutherefestival.com to discuss any specific camping needs.

ACCESSIBLE FACILITIES

We will have a 24 hour welfare and medical team available to support all customer needs. There will be a fridge available in the medical tent to keep any medication cool for the duration of the festival.

There will be accessible toilets available across the site. Please visit either the Campsite Hub or the Info Point where you can pay a deposit to sign out a RADAR key for the duration of the festival if you don’t have one of your own.

Approved assistance dogs will be permitted into the site, provided appropriate certification from the owner. Please email us for more information. 

Lowered bars, with large-print menus will be in place.

Free drinking water will be available across site from designated water points. 

Seating is available in different areas across the site.

Whilst the site offers plenty of open spaces, it is important to note that crowds may build up in certain areas. For those with mental health, emotional or sensory issues, the sounds, lights, smells and crowds of a festival have the potential to be difficult. Spaces such as Welfare, Info Point or the Accessible Campsite are available as respite. 

Festival staff will be available to assist.

Please email us on info@weoutherefestival.com to discuss any specific requirements.

GENERAL, LIVE-IN AND FAMILY CAMPSITE FACILITIES

The General and Family campsites are side-by-side and just a short walk from the public car park and arena (depending on where you’re camped 5 – 20 minutes). 

The family campsite is suggested as a more child-friendly space, furthest from the arena, however there are no facilities or parking specific to this campsite.

The Live-in campsite is close by General and Family and also only a short walk to the arena. The Live-in campsite is open to powered vehicles or towed trailers with obvious sleeping facilities that require no further infrastructure to be used for the purpose of sleeping (eg. tent). Cars/trucks may be used as towing vehicles, but are not permitted as stand alone ‘live-ins’’.

MEDICAL

We have a 24 hour fully equipped medical centre with an experienced and qualified team based in the arena. If you’re feeling unwell, or have taken a tumble, pop in and the team will be happy to help.

Get to know the location of Medical once you arrive on-site.

Whilst the site offers plenty of open spaces, it is important to note that crowds may build up in certain areas. For those with mental health, emotional or sensory issues, the sounds, lights, smells and crowds of a festival have the potential to be difficult.

All our welfare staff are there to offer you a safe haven when needed, bring good vibes and make sure you are back enjoying the festival in no time. Use them. 

We’ve developed some top tips for how to look after yourself and others that might be useful – please refer to the Accommodation section of this page. 

TEEN, YOUTH AND CHILD SAFETY

Under 18s are categorised as below and will have wristbands that distinguish them from adults.

  • Teen: Age 15 – 17
  • Youth: Age 10 – 14
  • Child: Age 9 and under

Adults responsible for teens are encouraged to monitor them closely. Adults responsible for youths and children are required to accompany them at all times. 

Any Youth or Children (14 and under) enjoying the Family Zone should be supervised by their designated responsible adult. This area is not designed as a crèche or child-minding service. Youth or teens (Aged 10+) may participate in activities for teens without a responsible adult present unless the activity/workshop leader requires adult supervision.

Big crowds can be overwhelming for children if they get separated from you. Make sure your children know what to do if they get lost – speak to a member of staff in the Family Zone, Welfare Tent, or any member of security. Make sure your child has your phone number on them so that we can contact you as soon as they are in our care.

Found children will be taken straight to the Welfare Tent where the team are trained in child safeguarding (all will have been recently DBS checked) and can offer a safe place for under 18s to be cared for.

The welfare team can also offer helpful information on request on issues such as protection of children’s hearing, keeping your child safe at the event and other useful guidance if you are unsure of anything.

All bars operate the Challenge 25 Policy.

LOST OR MISSING PERSONS

If you have lost your child or friends, speak to a member of security or head to the Welfare Tent where they will be able to help reunite you with your loved ones.

If you find a lost child or vulnerable person, please take them straight to a security guard or the Welfare Tent.

The outlets for alcohol sales on site are all managed by experienced staff that are aware of the necessity to sell alcohol responsibly.

All bars will look for wristbands when selling alcohol and not sell to anyone wearing an under 18 wristband. However, they will not rely on wristbands alone to determine the age of someone.

Sustainability & Environmental Awareness

Minimising the environmental impact of We Out Here is a core focus for the whole team. Please help us keep the land beautiful and this event sustainable with the following guidelines: 

What can I do to minimise my environmental impact at the festival? 

  • We have partnered with TunedInTravel – a carbon neutral coach company. Please consider this and other public transport options before driving. Customer travel has the largest impact on the events carbon emissions. If public transport isn’t a viable option we encourage festival-goers to arrange car-pools where possible.
  • If you plan on driving and have any spare seats to offer out, or if you are looking to jump in a fellow festival goer’s spare seat, please register for an account with https://liftshare.com/uk for easy, organised car-pooling.
  • Please bring a reusable bottle to be refilled at available water stations on site. At We Out Here we have a no single use plastics and no glass policy; reusable metal bottles will be on sale at our merchandise stands and on site bars will stock water in aluminium cans.
  • Please do not bring glitter to the site with you. It’s always great to sparkle at festivals but not at the cost of micro plastic damage to our oceans and wider environment. 
  • Pack thoughtfully before your journey; consider excess packaging and minimise what you bring – leaving anything you don’t need at home – in order to reduce waste and make leaving no trace easier for everyone. 

What are We Out Here doing to minimise their environmental impact?

  • Danley sound systems are some of the greenest sound systems available, taking up approximately ¼ of trucking space and power requirements (vs. standard line array systems) due to their efficiency. Danley speakers also maximise use of both recycled materials and rare earth materials in manufacturing.
  • We will be holding our food and drink concessions to the same standards with reusable cups used across all bars on site. No straws, plastic cutlery, polystyrene or any other single use plastics will be permitted on site in any capacity.
  • Our bars and concessions will offer a number of vegan and other products chosen for their sustainability.
