Into The Wild Summer Festival 2014: Review

Held during the Bank Holiday Weekend on August 22nd-25th 2014, Into The Wild Summer Festival was a truly relaxing adventure and a great alternative to busier, larger Summer Festivals - with a serving of food for the soul on top!

Into The Wild Festival Festival 2014

Last Spring I felt a strong desire and intention to start exploring the world of Summer Festivals. This was rather out of character for someone who, a little embarrassingly, at the age of 33 has consistently managed to avoid most of the UK large Summer Festivals. The one time I braved going to one before, I hated bits of the experience so much, it made me wonder why people put themselves through it. Being the daughter of a woman who hated camping, I have no practical skills to bring to life my lovely fantasy of natural living in the fields and navigating vast expanses of muddy territory amidst drunken folk will never become appealing to me. But, to my delight, it seems that every year more and more much smaller, quieter, manageable and family friendly field gatherings keep popping up! These were the kind I had my eye on this summer.
