Wilderness Festival 2022

04 August to 07 August

About Wilderness Festival 2022

Wilderness festival 2022 is the four-day festival combining live music, arts, wellbeing and an array of theatre, artisanship, late-night parties, outdoor pursuits and culinary experiences in the Oxfordshire countryside.

Wilderness Festival 2018 (Season Eight) was an all-guns blazing tour of the arts, a paradise studded with secrets and surprises. From Olivia Colman & Ben Kingsley performing with Letters Live to Justice and Chic on the Main Stage. George FitzGerald & Peggy Gou taking The Valley by storm to an intimate Kamasi Washington jam. Secret bars and hidden treasures were around every fork in the road. Relive the glory with our Festival Film.

At Wilderness Festival 2019 (Season Nine), the treats in store were numerous. On the bill were: Brit and Grammy nominated seismic Swedish starlet Robyn (UK festival exclusive), Bombay Bicycle Club (UK festival exclusive) and the mighty dance duo Groove Armada. Add a serious dose of dancefloor hijinks by way of four mega new music venues and an even more packed menu of arts, games, participatory weirdness, mass gatherings, orchestral ecstasies, special commissions, talks, takeovers, feasts, comedies and good old Wilderness classics.

Explore a community where genres are redefined, identity is turned on its head and arts from across the spectrum sit side by side. London’s most respected institutions bring bespoke works: The Royal Academy of Arts, Southbank Centre, The Roundhouse and The RSA. Life-enhancing and decadently surreal. All with a good chance of streakers.
