Wilderness Festival is fast approaching, taking place at Cornbury Park from the 7th to the 10th of August. Many impressive live acts are set to play through the daytime such as London Grammar, Metronomy, Jessie Ware, Sam Smith, Burt Bacharach, Mount Kimbie and Submotion Orchestra, which is already making the weekend look like an extremely promising affair. But when the sun goes down, what is there to do in the Wilderness?
Well… After dark the village halls and wooden lodges become dance floors and juke joints, with each night taking a different theme. Two stages and other areas will host all the late night revelry that goes on at Wilderness Festival, and the first is the Pandemonium Stage that will see a number of hot to trot names in house and disco playing through the night until the sun rises once more. Here you can see the likes of Eats Everything, Tom Middleton, Psychemagik, Greg Wilson, Mark E and many more.
The Styx Stage will also see plenty of night time mayhem as Rumpus, Shangri-La Superstar, Artful Badger and Chris Tofu all perform to the nocturnal beings that will be wandering round the site. Also appearing here are The Turbans, Swing Patrol, Tako Lako and much more.
Further into the night you have Petersham Playhouse who are hosting The Juke Joint where you will be able to find the finest blues, R&B and roots accompanied with Mama Gris Gris’ herbs, potions, spells and midnight moonshine. Finally the hedonistic world of ‘The Box’ will be transported from New York that will host an avant-garde party that we can’t wait to step into.
All these adventures, activities and destinations will be open through the entire night, every night to satisfy even the most notorious party animals, ensuring Wilderness Festival is not just a daytime affair.
