In The Woods
In The Woods is an intimate festival which has retained all of its charms, including an extremely small daily capacity of just 1,000 festival-goers. The organisers call it "a party for friends, just better..." and when you see what's on offer and where it all takes place, you appreciate that this description is more than fitting.
The main draw for many is the away from it all setting, the magical ambiance and the reasonably priced local ales and food. What more could you want to escape and de-stress for the weekend? For others, the fact that In The Woods is known for showcasing the latest talent in music is enough to bring them back year after year.
This independent festival really is a gem and one of a kind. It has music across 2 stages, workshops and art installations throughout the forest. The Line of Best Fit sums this festival up perfectly for us: " For those who like to embrace spontaneity and stumble upon new obsessions, it's a dream come true."
