Keith Miller, Wide Awake Co-Founder and Booker, said: “We’re so delighted to finally nail down King Gizz! It’ll be ten years since I first saw them in the Shacklewell when they hit the main stage. We’ve tried to bring them over every year, and they were our most requested acts from our fans survey. I caught them up at Manchester Psych Fest in September and it was unreal. You will not be disappointed!”
