Vintage Festival relocates to join forces with Wilderness Festival

This year's Vintage Festival is not able to operate as a stand-alone event so the organisers of Wilderness Festival have offered to host an incarnation of Vintage, as part of their own celebration within the Cornbury Park site in Oxfordshire.

Existing Vintage ticket holders will be offered the chance to exchange their festival tickets or claim a refund.

The Vintage experience at Wilderness will allow ticket holders to enjoy the entertainment on offer from the two festivals and two of Vintage Festival's flagship nightclubs, The Torch Club and Soul Casino, will transfer to a dedicated Vintage area within the Wilderness site.

Wayne Hemingway, co-founder of The Vintage Festival said: "Delivering something as ambitious as Vintage is a real challenge and there have been some seemingly insurmountable barriers, with economic and climatic hurdles being at the fore.

"However, we are resourceful and creative and with Wilderness kindly letting us "lodge" with them this year, the show still goes on. In the three years since starting a concept with this breadth of content we have experienced hiccups along the way but have always triumphed in the face of adversity and still left thousands of people with wonderful memories of an uplifting weekend. We hope you will join us this year and help us create another magical experience."

The Wilderness programme includes a Future Cinema festival takeover of Bugsy Malone, long table banquets from chefs Yotam Ottolenghi, Valentine Warner and Fergus Henderson + St. John.

The music line-up will see Rodrigo y Gabriela performing with the C.U.B.A orchestra, Wilco, Spiritualized and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings. There will also be talks and debates from cultural institutions and a lakeside spa complete with champagne bar and wood-fired hot tubs and a series of Late Night Parties.
