Wilderness Festival

Taking place every summer in a nature reserve within the luscious Oxfordshire countryside, Wilderness gives as much attention to food, theatre, fitness and the great outdoors as it does to its music line up. Expect swirling trapeze artists, fanciful feasts, live theatre and much, much more.

Not only can you dance the days away to famous bands and DJs, you can try wild swimming in Lake Majestic, take part in muggle quidditch, play disco dodgeball, or find your inner chill at a specialist yoga class.

Cornbury Park (map) is an estate near *Charlbury, *Oxfordshire. It comprises about 5000 acres, mostly farmland and woods, including a remnant of the Wychwood Forest, and was the original venue for the Cornbury Music Festival and later the Wilderness Festival.

Wilderness Festival is known for its eccentricity. Fancy dress is the norm, you can do yoga in a yurt, there are huge dinners around long tables and the line up goes for the quietly cool over outrageous headliners. It’s not just about the music here – there are loads of things to do at Wilderness Festival beyond that main stage.

Make Wilderness a learning experience and spend some time in the debate area. A big teepee with lots of colour, this is a safe space for top speakers to talk everything from climate change to current affairs. Check the schedule and take a break from listening to the tunes to learn something new.

Forget the burger van and donut stand, at Wilderness festivalgoers go gourmet, at least at the Long Table Banquets anyways.

Forget the extra hot dog you just had and feel fabulous at the The F***Size Catwalk.

This show is all about giving the finger to diets and unrealistic body images and embracing everyone as they come. Run by the Anti Diet Riot Club, they’re delivering a healthy portion of self-love and confidence and everyone is welcome to strut, stride and pose on this runway.
