2015 saw the creation of a new genre of festival, as Wildfire Adventure Camp came to prominence as the world’s first “Questival” at a secret location in the south of England. Word spread like wildfire and all 500 tickets sold out quickly as a fearless band of like-minded souls shunned the trappings of everyday life to participate in a series of communal activities that tested their strength and character and challenged their mental resources.
Set in a stunning forest location, Wildfire is a 1950's style adventure camp by day, where leaders will encourage campers to take part in a huge array of activities across the site. This ‘Questival’ requires you to leave your modern day lifelines at the door (no electronic devices allowed, not even cameras), with a focus on immersing yourself in sunny days of fulfilment. Revellers will be lead by camp leaders and a spectacular show team for a weekend of immersive theatre, music and adventure. As darkness falls and the sun goes down, Wildfire is transformed into a hedonistic utopia of rich music and unabashed revelry as the team behind LeeFest curate a diverse music programme.
This trailblazing event captured the hearts and minds of the media who dubbed Camp Wildfire as the ‘Worlds first questival’ and the ‘Ultimate digital detox’
