Among the artists expected to attend Sundance London are Lake Bell, Mike Birbiglia, Jimmy Carr, the Eagles, Barbara Kopple and Peaches, as well as Sundance Institute President & Founder Robert Redford, who said, “We would hope for Sundance London to be another 'Sundance' experience – lively, culturally relevant and fun. We look forward to engaging with audiences as we discover new voices, new points of view and new perspectives.”

The 2013 program of 18 features and nine shorts includes a new UK spotlight and continues to focus on new work by indie filmmakers and to explore the interplay between film and music. Twenty-three films will make their international, European or UK premieres at Sundance London. Ten are by female filmmakers and six are by first-time feature filmmakers.

Sundance London will host several live music performances and events including already announced headliner Peaches, with more to come. Among the 17 acts at Sundance London 2012 were Tricky and Martina Topley-Bird, Placebo, and Rufus and Martha Wainwright. The film and panel program is listed below.
