Wilderness Festival 2016 (Official Aftermovie)

Posh is the name of the game at Wilderness Festival . Flaming bicycles, lobster bakes, simmering barbecues, massage tables shaded by trees and elegantly dressed revelers pepper the grounds of Cornbury Park in Wilderness' whimsical 2016 aftermovie. Equal parts posh and party, the festival's diverse offering treats the festival experience as a regal celebration, one that stretches far beyond high-powered musical headliners. 

One of our favorite festivals for fancy dress , Wilderness' aftermovie invites us to consider what's in store, with a pause through a clearing in the trees. We then join the mailman as he leaves his (adorable) post office, and beckons us to join his traipsing through the grounds. He delivers mail to campers, and we end up right in the center of gastronomical delights, wood-fired hot tubs, and stilt-walkers and snare drums dancing in jubilant parades. Minimal screen time goes to shots of musical headliners, unlike the general arc you'd see in the average festival aftermovie. Instead, this gorgeously crafted piece trains the lens on the festival's fashionable, jazzy, fun-loving crowd. 

Released just as we're all longing for those lingering summer days, (and dying to see another legendary "Saturday Night Spectacle") this aftermovie beckons us to join the ride and get excited for next year's festival, which pulls into Oxfordshire's Cornbury Park between August 3-6, 2017. Tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks.
