When is it? Aug 5-8.
What is it? Wilderness isn’t just about spot-on sounds. It has a beautiful swimming lake. It plays host to Letters Live, the cult performance strand where unanounced actors like Olivia Colman and Benedict Cumberbatch read out epistles by distinguished cultural and political figures. It also holds famous long-table banquets from top chefs.
Who’s playing? Jamie xx, Loyle Carner, Rudimental, Georgia, Mahalia and more.
Why go? Wilderness is consistently one of the UK’s best festivals, but even if you just went for the beautiful lake alone, you'd have a good time.
