Disclosure’s Wild Life Festival won’t return in 2018 as duo work on third album

Disclosure have told fans their Wild Life Festival will not return in 2018 due to the duo working on their third album.

Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence first held the event at Shoreham Airport, near Brighton, in 2015, with it running every year since. Past line-ups have included the likes of Fatboy Slim, Jess Glynne, Eric Prydz, George Ezra, and more.

In an Instagram post, the pair said: “Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like Nas, Ice Cube, and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada, and AJ Tracey, stack them up against a host of flawless DJs like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and Armand Van Helden and throw parties with Elrow is literally a dream come true.

We embarked on a new journey three years ago by launching @wild_life_fest at Shoreham Airport with our close friends, Rudimental. We’d not long finished touring our asses off of debut album, Settle and that inaugural year of the festival in 2015 allowed us to embark on our next chapter with the release of second album, Caracal. Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like Nas, Ice Cube and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada and AJ Tracy, stack them up against a host of flawless DJ’s like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and Armand Van Helden and throw parties with Elrow is literally a dream come true. However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019. Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times we’ve ever had as Disclosure, we’re hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon.

“However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019.”

Last year, Disclosure announced they would be taking a “time out” from music, posting a handwritten letter to Twitter. In it they wrote: “This year, we are only going to do a few special things”, citing Wild Life Festival and “a few other bits we can’t mention just yet”.

The duo rose to fame with their Mercury Prize-nominated debut ‘Settle’ in 2013. It featured lead singles ‘Latch’ and ‘White Noise’. They last released an album with 2015’s ‘Caracal‘, which featured collaborations with the likes of The Weeknd, Lorde, Sam Smith, Miguel, and more.
