Wilderness 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.
All roads now lead to Season Nine. The treats in store are numerous. On the bill: 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.
