As well as bringing some of the most high-in-demand live and electronic acts to the fold, the ever-progressive Wilderness Festival also champions some of the most important and innovative topics through their live debates, workshops and talks, with the latest edition of the festival being no exception. As well as incredible performances from the likes of pop sensation Robyn, the return of indie greats Bombay Bicycle Club, Groove Armada, Tom Odell, Eats Everything, Honey Dijon, Tom Grennan and more, this August festival is also the place to feast on some of the hot topics taking priority right now.
A brand new Audible Live stage features talks and debates from some of popular culture’s greatest minds, and the opportunity to hear the likes of actor, director and #MeToo whistleblower and advocate Rose McGowan offer her thoughts on current affairs, as well as one of the nation’s favoured television presenters Dermot O’Leary, comedians Adam Kay and Luisa Omielan, high-esteemed authors Scarlett Curtis, June Sarpong MBE and so many more offers the exclusive opportunity of insight. On top of this, the curation of a House Of Sublime stage is a brand new space fitting the purpose for all to experiment with the freedom of self-expression, as the ever changing world of gender politics is given an all important platform. Expect the art of drag, the most flamboyant of comedic acts, nu-burlesque and the most innovative of arts from some of the most incredible LGBTQ+ of young creatives.
