Welcome to the Wilderness, Welcome to Wilderness Festival!
This festival has everything and has its roots firmly in what true festivals should be! Whether it be well known music, new music, amazing food, literary experiences, arts & crafts or the late night shows from the famous Box (from Soho, London via New York) you are truly in for something special.
And if that wasn’t enough there are a few things that will transform your four days from magical to mind-blowing…
The Lakeside Spa, Dynamic yoga, Wilderness cooking school, Sanctuary workshops and boutique camping to name but a few! The entire suite of goodness can be found here

What They Say…
It’s the biggest middle-class love-in of the year, and for 2014 Wilderness is set to deliver more ukulele-twanging, sustainably sourced sausage-scoffing fun than ever before. The festival’s capacity has been upped (although we’re promised the site layout means that won’t be noticeable) and so has the quality of the headliners, with London Grammar, Metronomy and legendary ivory-tinkler Burt Bacharach among the big names on the bill – Time Out.
What We Say…
Set amidst rolling fields, pretty woodland and a big lake complete with waterfall and rowing boats Oxfordshire’s Wilderness Festival has made a name for itself as the ultimate music-loving foodie’s weekend attracting. It attracts around 15,000 middle-class yet free spirited individuals who will come with an open-mind to experience all there is to experience.
The festival delivers big on fun and big variety with the focus is on quality rather than quantity.
NEW for this year – Victorinox Edition tents
Brand new to 2014, Wilderness Festival will be offering Victorinox Editions collection tents. They have been designed in collaboration with Christopher Raeburn for fashion, utility and sustainability – all the key areas covered off! These products are limited-run pieces, (nice nice) combining exceptional design, sustainable fabrics and innovative manufacturing techniques. The range features an exclusive neon cross & shield camouflage print – made to stand out rather than blend in – and are available exclusively via the Wilderness Store here. Our advice… get ’em whilst you can!
As you can see above its safe to say you’ll never lose your tent (or be tempted to leave it behind) again. This unique Technical Sprayway tent is easy-to-assemble, perfect for two, features a sleek engineered design and is one of the most modern compact tents available.
