My Top 5 Oxfordshire Festivals this Summer

As we start to see rays of sunshine stream across Oxfordshire fields and feel the warmth of spring on the landscape, my mind starts to dream of my ultimate summer day out – a festival in the sun.

Luckily we don’t need to look further than our very own county, to catch big name acts and artists perform in 2024.

Here are my top 5 Oxfordshire Festivals not to miss in 2024...

Kite, 7-9 June 2024

KITE is a fabulous festival of music and ideas that takes place at Kirtlington Park in Kidlington, just north of Oxford city. Headliners haven’t been announced yet, but if last year is anything to go by, think era-defining icons, contemporary stars and emerging talent driving the music scene forward, across four stages.

Focused on alternative music, KITE draws from indie, folk, soul and musical traditions from around the world. Music to make you dance, to help you think and lose yourself in the moment. From intimate shows allowing you to get up close and personal with artists to open arenas where the biggest acts in the world can spread their wings.

There will be talk about the major forces shaping the world we live in, today and in the future. Together, you’ll explore answers to big questions relating to power, our planet, technology, identity, living and culture. In-depth interviews and keynotes will sit side by side with discussions and debates where you, the audience, get to have your say.

Wilderness, 1-4 August 2024

A shimmering four-day party like no other, this multifarious gathering in the wild of Cornbury Park is back for a deluxe and divine thirteenth edition. Unleashing stellar artists from around the globe to perform amidst a magical nature reserve, Wilderness is an incandescent celebration in the most blissful of settings. Michelin-starred chefs, performers, professors and practitioners. Stadium headliners meet backroom bar bands, newly discovered acoustic talent sits beside mighty electronic virtuosos.

Designed to nourish, to thrill and to inspire, Wilderness has evolved, delivering a glittering, heady dose of glamour, excitement and escapism - with a generous side of the surreal. You’ll find performances across the most epic and intimate of dance floors, from atmospheric and left-field hideaways to the euphoric Valley and the mighty Wilderness Stage. There’s a new and extended comedy programme; an increased focus on pursuits in the wild; a lineup of culinary experiences which continues to surprise with its scale and ambition; more to discover within the parades, walkabout theatre, interactive artworks, and micro-venues and the most glamorous themes to date.
