It’s about making Your Wilderness even more colourful, thrilling, vibrant and spine-tingling. You are in safe, (experimental) hands…All roads lead to the Wilderness. See you there.



Born in 2011 out of an unlikely pairing of teams behind Secret Garden Party and Lovebox, Wilderness is a refined concept event that feels like a cross between Glastonbury and Glyndebourne.  The extensive programme of talks, debates, workshops and luxury communal dining is arguably a greater part of Wilderness than its music and arts adventures.  From wild swimming to perfume making, Sunday services at an atheist church to holistic therapies and spa treatments, Michelin-star gastronomy to opera production—everything about Wilderness radiates sophistication, adventurous spirit and unashamed intellectualism. An elegant and smart musical line-up is guaranteed and so is significant damage to your bank balance.

Music highlights: Bjork, Ben Howard, Caravan Place, George Clinton, Ibibio Sound Machine, Hercules & Love Affair, Nick Mulvey, Nils Frahm, Parliament & Funkadelic,Roisin Murphy
