Wilderness Festival

The Wilderness Festival takes place this year on 10-12th August at Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire. Set in the wilds of England against an exquisite backdrop of lakes, forests and parklands, Wilderness 2012 will offer a gastronomic banquet for all the senses, with quality food, spoken word performances, outdoor activities and creative workshops on top of all the music.

 

Tim Harvey, festival organiser says:

 

“For us, it’s important for friends and family to come along and use the weekend as a place to indulge the senses, relax, eat well, escape, learn and enjoy activities that aren’t so easily accessible in our day to day lives. We’ll be adding foraging in the woods, horse riding, food workshops, a bandstand, a new twist on wine tasting and plenty other new entertainment.”

 

The Beard Rock pinsticker's guide recommends Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Wilco, Spiritualized, Fatoumata Diawara, a bit of foraging and a visit to The Idler Academy.  And the 'Wild Swimming' looks like an ideal opportunity to surreptitiously rinse off your junk.  Tickets are on sale now.
