Festival: Wilderness

The brainchild of the people behind Secret Garden Party and Lovebox returns to Oxfordshire this August
Festival: Wilderness

9th – 11th August

There  aren’t many festivals that combine panel debates, nature retreats and wood-fired hot tubs with an enormous wealth of talent from the worlds of circus, music and theatre. However, Wilderness Festival does just that.

It is the brainchild of the people behind the success of both the Secret Garden Party and Lovebox music festivals. As Wilderness enters its third year in the picturesque parkland of Cornbury Estate, Oxfordshire, the festival will certainly aim to maintain and further solidify its reputation awarded to it by the readers of the Live UK magazine as the the UK’s best festival with a capacity under 15,000 in 2012.

Australian duo Empire of the Sun headline in what is an exclusive UK festival performance, and their first UK date in just over three years. A perfect headline act in the care-free, relaxed environment that the festival offers. Other acts performing include Noah and the Whale, Rodriguez, Ghostpoet, King Krule and Martha Wainwright, alongside the BBC Sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka and the 2013 Brits Critics Choice award winner Tom Odell.

Tickets are £139 for the weekend w/camping – see website for more details.
