10 Things Do To At Wilderness Festival
Happy Friday! It’s a bit miserable outside so I’ve been dreaming of warmer days in golden fields with good food, great music and awesome friends. Getting out to a local festival is a great way to recharge the batteries and disconnect from the day to day.
Last week we headed to Charlbury in West Oxfordshire for Wilderness Festival, a four day extravaganza of music, arts, food, wellbeing and creativity, all set in the stunning back drop of Cornbury Park.
There are so many things to see and do at this Oxfordshire festival, so we’ve put together a list of the top 10 thing to do, to make sure you get the full Wilderness experience!
Listen to talks on climate change, sustainable economics and how to be the change you want to see in the world.
Catch local bands and artists at stages across the site. Low Island from Oxford, opened the main stage on Saturday this year.
Make a flower crown, try your hand at blacksmithing or whittle a spoon in the Green Crafts Village.
Wilderness is renowned for it’s food scene. Awesome food trucks, brilliant dining tents and incredible feasts await.
Start the day with yoga in the wild, unwind with a relaxing massage or chill out in a lakeside hot tub.
Cricket, But Not As You Know It
The Wilderness fancy dress Sunday cricket match is a must see for festival goers. Themed teams compete, this year fact v fiction, with characters including Brexit, Yoda, Flat Earth, and a dinosaur.
Take a dip in the beautiful lakes that lie at the bottom of the Wilderness valley surrounded by old oak trees and bull rushes.
Break A Record
Each year the Wilderness crew attempt a new World Record, this year they managed the most people spooning in one go.
Wilderness always curates a brilliant line up of musical acts and this year was no exception. Bombay Bicycle Club were spine tinglingly beautiful on Friday night, and Robyn was phenomenal on Saturday with a set jam packed with crowd pleasers and brilliant staging. Shingai from The Noisettes played a captivating set on Saturday at The Level, and festival goers queued up to see Erol Alkan work his magic on the decks in The Valley on Friday night.
Wilderness offers so much to immerse yourself in, but also gives you the space and freedom to just enjoy being outdoors. Lounge by the lake or sit back under the dapple shade of an old oak tree and take in the weird and wonderful world of Wilderness.
