A festival for the entire family

The 2018 Wilderness Festival is ready to hit Wilderness running next month, offering an amazing selection of fine wine, good food and entertainment for the whole family.

Wine, cheese and a wide array of different food will remain at the heart of the festival for its third year in Wilderness, but a wider selection of other tastes will be on offer this year, like craft beers, gin, Witblitz and Mampoer.

Hosted at The Wilderness Hotel from April 13 to 15, this year’s festival has got a whole new set of treats up its entertainment sleeve this year, including a visit from national songwriter, singer and guitarist,  Jesse Jordan, who will be making his first ever performance in the seaside village. He’ll headline 25 hours of music provided by local artists producing the sort of sounds that have made the Wilderness Festival so attractive to visitors in the past. There will also be a live radio broadcast from the festival presented by Marq Roelofse.

For those who prefer new cars and bikes and the sounds of engines to those of guitars, the organisers have a surprise that will be like music to their ears – a new experience for this year’s festival is the opportunity to enjoy displays of the latest Audi and BMW vehicles and motorcycles, as well as new offerings from Peugeot and Citroen.  

Another attraction for visitors to the Wilderness Festival will be the varied art and craft exhibits, ranging from woodwork to leather goods. And while mom and dad are busy wandering from stall to stall, tasting, enjoying the sounds, and having a good time, their children will be entertained in a fenced-off area where the entertainment includes pedal carts, a jumping castle, face painting and target paintball shooting.

Tickets for adults include a wine tasting glass and access to free tastings.
