What are you up to this weekend? Whatever your plans, it's quite possible they're not as fun as arts, music and food extravaganza Wilderness festival, taking place Thursday–Sunday of this very week. Hidden away on a private nature reserve in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, this boutiquey, eclectic event offers up woodland partying, outdoor hot tubs, brainiac lectures, horse-riding, delicious street food, long-table banquets (presided over by Michelin-Starred chefs Angela Hartnett and Raymond Blanc) and much more, alongside a stellar music line-up. And somehow, against all the odds, there are still a few tickets left – but be quick, they won't be available for long.
As noted, there’s a whole bunch of great musical acts on the bill: from rousing singer-songwriter Ben Howard to multilingual dance crew Ibibio Sound Machine. But a couple of performers truly stand out (and not just for their colourful sense of style): namely Björk, that Icelandic queen of heartfelt, orchestral electronica, and the ‘King of Funk’ himself Mr George Clinton. The former brings an incredible live show heavy on songs from ace new album ‘Vulnicura’ and the latter a Mothership’s worth of cosmic funk in conjunction with his legendary Parliament/Funkadelic crew. Unmissable stuff.
Seriously, what are you waiting for? Grab a ticket while you still can.
