10 Things Do To At Wilderness Festival

 In Inspiration

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!

Catch A Headliner

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.
