Chefs Tom Aikens and Tom Brown are joining the foodie line up at Wilderness 2019

Popular music and food festival Wilderness has unveiled its foodie line-up for 2019, and it’s all sorts of impressive.

Taking place in Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire from 1-4 August, Wilderness will see several top chefs and popular restaurants join the crowds. One of the main draws will be chef Tom Aikens, who runs the Tom’s Kitchen group. You’ll find him in The Dining Room, which sees a collection of cool restaurants come together to cook up a storm. Aikens will be hosting the Long Table Banquets on the Sunday of the festival, serving up a menu which will be revealed on the day.

Festival guests will have plenty of dining options to choose from

Elsewhere in The Dining Room, several of London’s hottest restaurants will be making an appearance. You can expect to find the likes of Smokestak, 12:51, Hicce and Le Bab, while Pizza Pilgrims will makes its debut as part of the festival’s Field Restaurants, joining returning favourites Café Murano, Petersham Nurseries and Patty & Bun.

Sabor's Neives Barragán will cook a six-course tasting menu

If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, you can join the Chef’s Table, where six-course tasting menus will be served alongside a helping of lakeside views. Chefs that will be taking over the kitchen include Nieves Barragán of Mayfair’s Sabor and Great British Menu star Tom Brown, who owns Hackney’s Cornerstone.

Wilderness has thought about those who don’t eat meat too, with plant-based street food traders such as Arancini Brothers and Buddha Bowls showing up to serve the crowds.

The festival is well known for its Instagrammable aesthetic

Just in case you forgot, Wilderness is actually primarily a music festival, and the stellar line-up of musical acts doesn’t look like it will disappoint either. Headliners for the festival include the likes of Swedish pop sensation Robyn, as well as indie pop band Bombay Bicycle Club and electronic music duo Groove Armada.

Tickets for Wilderness Festival start from £168.50 per person, plus a booking fee. Find out more about the festival at
