Located within the beautiful, natural setting of an 800 year old deer park in Oxfordshire, Wilderness Festival is regarded as one of the UK’s best boutique festivals. With a varying selection of music, exciting attractions to get involved in and a wealth of alternative entertainment, there is something for everyone at Wilderness.
This year’s carefully curated line up sees a diverse mix up of both big name headliners from across the globe and must see fresh talent. Alongside music, alternative entertainment includes talks, panel discussions, food stalls and more. But, sticking to the music for now, we’ve hand picked some of the must see acts for this year at Wilderness.
Wilderness Festival tickets are available from official ticket partner, Ticket Arena. On sale now.
Regarded as one of the most influential pop artists of the past 20 years, Robyn is set to headline the Wilderness main stage for a UK exclusive. Having accumulated four UK top ten singles, five Grammy nominations, a countless number of online streams - all this including the creation of some of the most memorable songs of the previous couple of decades, including ‘With Every Heartbeat’ and ‘Dancing On My Own’. The Swedish superstar returned after nearly a decade away with her new album Honey, that has appeared on multiple album lists of 2018. Robyn is a must see.
Making her distinctive mark on the underground electronic music scene, Honey Dijon is scheduled to bring her signature sound of Chicago house, New York classics and European influences to The Valley stage at Wilderness this year. Her winning charisma and funky style is set to win the crowd over, flowing in between house, techno and dance anthems. A funfilling addition to the Wilderness line up.
Bombay Bicycle Club
Having recently announced a UK tour after ten years since the release of their album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, Bombay Bicycle Club return with an exclusive UK festival set. After making a rather surprising statement that announced their indefinite hiatus back in 2016, the four piece indie favourites are back making new music and making a full return this year, with Wilderness being the first to witness the exclusive. Previously winning hearts among the english indie scene, with tracks such as ‘Ivy & Gold’ and ‘Always Like This’, Bombay Bicycle Club’s highly anticipated return is certainly not one to miss this year.
Voigtmann brings his unpredictable style to Wilderness Festival this year, playing at the stage The Higher Ground. Beginning his career by running London’s most underground and conceptual party Toi.Toi.Musik, Claus Voigtmann has now moved to a strong dedication to djing and music production, alongside a strong love for vinyl. Having performed at huge clubs such as Fabric London, and playing alongside Carl Cox in Ibiza, Voigtmann is certainly a riser moving swiftly within the electronic music scene.
With a residency that has lasted six years at legendary Belfast nightclub Shine, paired up with continuous shows at the likes of Panorama Bar, The Warehouse Project and Boiler Room, Cromby is certainly rising through the ranks. Cromby has released on Denis Sulta’s label Sulta Selects, and Pete Tong named his track ‘Retribution’ his essential new tune back in December. The future certainly looks bright for Cromby, and his set at Wilderness is definitely something to experience.
