Wilderness 2011

And so, whilst riots burst out into London streets we were granted safe haven into Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire — the setting for what has to be the most beautiful festival of them all, Wilderness. For those of you who haven't heard of it you soon will. To those of you who were part of it, well, what can we say... "shall we all do it again?"

The festival alchemists, who curate both The Secret Garden Party and Lovebox,  delivered a considered holistic blend of what makes a truly fine experience. For so many reasons it was the highlight of our festival season. Just have a look at what we're talking about.

We played host to many artists, ranging from the fledgling to the fledged and sometimes a mixture of both. We invited all: festival goer, festival worker, festival performer, and we were lucky enough to have some special moments with both our audiences and performers. Highlights include 1000 Mile Highway, Will and the People, Holloway Jug Band, Sharma, Muddy Lake and there was so much more. 

We'll be putting this one on our 2012 wish-list.
