Wilderness 2016 Review

My 6 year old son and I were given a last minute chance to spend Sunday at Wilderness Festival. No days spent choosing what to pack.  I just threw some sun cream, water, a couple of apples, a hoody, a small blanket and a couple of glow sticks in a bag and we were off for an adventure.  Read more…

Best Family Festivals 2015

CIAF 2014


Here are our top picks for 2015!

Whether a festival is good for you depends on what music you’re into and what other things you like doing at festivals, as well as the age of your kids. If you are new to festivals with kids, you may want to read our guide to Choosing the right Family-Friendly Festival.

We have included our affiliate links in the listings – if you click “Buy Tickets Now” you will go straight to the ticket page for your chosen festival. You will not pay anything for this but the festival will give us a small commission to keep Festival Kidz up and running – so please use them!

Wilderness Festival… Where the wild things are…

Review and pictures by Vicky Lane

This was our second visit to beautiful Cornbury Park the home of Wilderness festival. The organisers really couldn’t have found a more perfect place to have a festival. We were so excited and so grateful to be invited back after discovering what felt like a wonderful secret last year.
