The elusive shindig returns after taking a fallow year in 2015, and will be bringing a whole host of excellent new music to a secret woodland location in Kent.

In The Woods is celebrating its 10th year this year, and is co-directed by Charlie Andrew, winner of this year’s BRIT Award for Best Producer. As in previous years, the festival curators have focused on booking a line-up that features artists still very much in the development stage of their career; avoiding big hitting headliners and over wrought production in favour of breaking new talent.

The line-up for the festival, which takes place between 2-4 September, has thus far been kept under lock and key with tickets almost selling out with little or no information revealed. Until now that is.

The following names are confirmed to play across both main stages on Saturday 3 September. 

Let's Eat Grandma
Will Joseph Cook
Dreller
Bad Sounds
Jennifer Evans
Sevdaliza
Shame
Bruce O Yates
Elderbrook
Weaves
Wovoka Gentle
Strong Asian Mothers
Roseau
Francobollo
ILK
Matt Woods
Willie J Healey
Adam Betts
Jorja Smith
Trim

The second In The Woods line-up announcement will follow in the coming weeks and will feature the weekend's headliners and special guests. A very small handful of tickets for the event remain on sale here.
