Wilderness Festival

Wilderness Festival is a family friendly affair with a huge musical lineup to suit all tastes.  A nod to old school origins. The programme is inspired by the landscape and the natural world and as such is a true celebration of the wild, of adventure and of wilderness itself. Dive in the lakes, roll in the grass, ride a bike through the forests, camp under the stars and then dance like there’s no tomorrow to some of the mightiest sounds on the planet. After all, that is what Wilderness is all about.
