After our two day stop in Oxford we made our way to Wilderness Festival in Cornbury Park, a beautiful estate nestled in the Oxfordshire countryside. Now, I have to preface this by saying, I've only ever been to two or so festivals, so I'm not an expert by any means, but MAN was this festival AMAZING! Fun, music, art, literature, dancing, cabaret, good food, an outdoor spa, yoga, happy people of all ages.
The evening we arrived, we luckily snagged some of the last tickets for the lake-side spa. We took turns in floating in the hot tub watching the stars&moon, sweating in the sauna and swimming in the lake for two hours. It was pure happiness.
There were great bands, all the healthy food you could wish for and all the not so healthy drinks to balance it out. We watched a 10 metre tower of wood burn to the ground, danced in a forest, keeled over laughing at the kookiest cabaret ever, went to a lot of literary talks, saw theatre performances and listened to so much new to me music. Ugh, it's so hard to recollect all the things we've done and seen, but it's just been such a lovely experience. If you ever have a chance to go to Wilderness Festival, just do it!
Images by me, except the four fiery ones which I borrowed from the Wilderness website. Have a look at their beautiful gallery to get a much better impression of the festival.
