As our part of the planet starts to tilt back towards the sun, thoughts begin to turn to summer.

If you’re joining us this summer you can expect a transformative experience at ALSO20.  Now in our seventh year we're established as the festival where ideas run WILD.  All in 50 heavenly acres - on the banks of a lake.

We'll email you over the next few months to help you design the weekend that will work best for you.  ALSO encourages you to plot your own course through our highly curated festival, with 250 events over seven stages and three days to choose from.  Ideas run through everything we do, a bit like letters through a stick of rock. You’ll find headline talks, intimate double-talks, talk-walks, demos and tastings, all bringing life enhancing information and ideas to brilliant life. Our music programme glitters - packed with new bands, up and coming artists and exciting audio adventures. Expect exceptional food across the festival and bold immersive banquets - the festival getting together for a Balearic Brunch Sunday Lunch, and the joys of food and drink celebrated with events that explore food trends and cocktail culture. Want wellness? We have wild swimming, wild walks, wild foraging, wild running because we have learnt everything’s better in nature - so much so that your time with us at ALSO is a transformative three day nature fix.

Sustainable as it’s possible to be. Immersive experiences throughout so everyone gets to try something new. A strong spine of dance throughout all our programming and a sound proofed bunker made of straw for those who want to dance all night. And If you’re tempted to supercharge your camping experience we offer the best festival glamping deal in the country with our Hippy Heights Hotel, far away from the bunker overlooking the lake.

No wonder we were picked as one of Conde Nast Travellers’ Best Festivals in the World in 2019.

Launch line up coming soon. Theme announced February. Full Line Up end of March.  Dining, immersive, workshop programme opens beginning of April.  Time to Get the Gang Together….NOW.
