Wilderness 2016

Wilderness 2016

at Cornbury Park, Charlbury

This event has been and gone.

Wilderness is back in 2016 so expect another fantastic weekend of music and entertainment. Robert Plant & The Sensation Space Shifters make an exclusive UK performance. Plus The Flaming Lips will be giving a UK exclusive performance of their classic album 'The Soft Bulletin'.

From the creators of Secret Garden Party, Wilderness carries the same hedonistic vibe but more chilled with a variety of workshops, banquets, spoken-word events and arts activities.

Instead of focusing purely on music - this festival is a lot more about food, entertainment and dancing - it’s a place to chill and explore your inner spirituality.

The location is like a relaxing sanctuary set in the Oxfordshire countryside based around a peaceful lake; it’s a revival of the medieval times.

Wilderness was named the best festival under 15000 in 2012 at the Live UK Music Business Awards.

The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips appearing at this event

Alternative rock outfit from Oklahoma City founded by the eclectic Wayne Coyne. The Lips are renowned for their spectacular, eccentric live shows, which include elaborate costumes, puppets, confetti and Wayne Coyne's man-sized plastic bubble in which he walks over the top of the audience. Following hit albums like The Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots and At War With The Mystics, the band continues to push boundaries. From self-releases on USB sticks engulfed in a gummy skull head and fetus, to tribute albums covering Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and The Beatles' Sgt.Pepper, to celebrity collaborations with their 'heady fwends' including Ke$ha and Nick Cave, the band seem to be forever productive and creative. Following a "greatest hits" compilation in 2018, they released their 15th studio album 'King's Mouth' in 2019, featuring narration from The Clash's Mick Jones.
