What’s on at Bear Grylls’ Gone Wild Festival?

So what Bear Grylls style fun can you expect?

Gone Wild Festival (26 to 29 August 2021) won’t be for the faint-hearted – festival goers who enjoy chill out zones, poetry reading and henna tattoos can find their fun at one of Devon’s other events. The schedule has been put together by Bear to challenge families over an action-packed weekend.

It includes kayaking on the Exe Estuary, Be Military Fit family group workouts, a purpose built obstacle course, abseiling and climbing. There will also be instructors from the Bear Grylls Survival Academy who will teach children and adults essential survival skills such as shelter building, fire lighting and campfire cooking.

Gone Wild Festival headliners

A festival wouldn’t be a festival without music and Gone Wild has attracted some brilliant headliners. Already confirmed on the music stages are the Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight and the Ministry of Sound Orchestra

As the sun goes down over the castle, festival goers will be able to eat delicious locally sourced food from some of the finest chefs and street food vendors from across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Then they can dance the night away to live music and DJs, laugh with well-known comedians, and share stories around the campfire. 

Festival charity

The festival will also be supporting families and military personnel with a Devon connection. Ten percent of all proceeds from general admission tickets go directly to The RMA – Royal Marines Charity to support serving and former Royal Marines and their families.

This charity exists to help the entire Royal Marines family and are strong believers in once a Marine, always a Marine. They offer a range of services from financial assistance to advice on finding a second, meaningful career and anything in between.
