The Oxfordshire based Wilderness Festival has secured one of the most elusive bookings of the season by announcing the iconic Icelandic songwriter Björk as their Friday night headliner. Following the release of ‘Vulnicura’ the songstress had only announced a string of New York dates and a selection of US festivals so far so the chance to see this elusive performer in the UK is a huge appeal.
Returning for its fifth year, Wilderness Festival features a wide range of attractions alongside its musical acts. The arts programme includes talks, debates, family magic and games plus theatre. Also recently announced, Ben Howard will bring the festival to a close as he headlines the Sunday night whilst George Clinton will top the bill for Saturday.
Other musical acts confirmed so far include Roisin Murphy, Nick Mulvey, Nils Frahm, Caravan Palace, Hercules & Love Affair, Brandt Bauer Frick Ensemble, Benjamin Clementine, Ibibio Sound Machine and Will & The People. Last year saw performances from Metronomy and Jessie Ware. Wilderness has been critically praised as a vocational experience as opposed to a simple event and was awarded the Best New Festival award in its second year.
