“Beyond Survival: Bear Grylls Takes On the Wild at Festival”

Bear Grylls’ Gone Wild Festival is making a triumphant return this year with two exciting locations: Holkham Hall in Norfolk (8-11th August) and Powderham Castle in Devon (22-25th August). The festival has already sold out for both venues, with only 250 family tickets remaining for an unforgettable family adventure.

Amidst a challenging time for the festival industry, Gone Wild Festival has continued to thrive, standing out as a unique and highly sought-after event. Despite the closure of 172 festivals since 2019, Gone Wild has managed to attract more and more families each year, offering a one-of-a-kind experience that goes beyond traditional music-led festivals.

Recent surveys have shown that only one in ten people plan to attend a festival this year, highlighting the difficult environment for event organizers (Stat from AIF). However, Gone Wild’s near sell-out status demonstrates its ability to exceed the expectations of its audience. With over 150 adventure activities, engaging entertainment, and a family-friendly atmosphere, Gone Wild sets itself apart from other festivals.

Founded by TV adventurer Bear Grylls and former Royal Marines Officer Oliver Mason in 2021, Gone Wild’s unique concept of combining a family adventure holiday with a music festival has resonated with attendees and driven year-on-year growth. This success has allowed the festival to expand from one to two sites.

Bear Grylls, Festival Co-Founder, expressed his pride in the festival’s message of family adventure, stating, “We set up the festival to inspire more families to be active outdoors together. Gone Wild is growing because it has a great team and fantastic, loyal customers who keep coming back. I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Devon and at our new venue in Norfolk.”

In a year where the festival industry has faced unprecedented challenges, Gone Wild Festival with Bear Grylls is standing strong and is on the brink of selling out, despite the closure of 43 festivals in 2024.

Oliver Mason, Festival Co-Founder, also expressed his pride in the festival’s resilience, saying, “I’m so proud of how Gone Wild has stood up during this tough industry storm. It hasn’t always been easy, but we’re totally committed to giving our customers the best experience when they come through the gates. We’ve expanded to two sites this year. Both events are selling well, and that’s a testament to the vision of this event, our fantastic team, and loyal customers.”

As the festival season approaches, Gone Wild is gearing up to deliver another unforgettable event, promising attendees a special blend of family activities. From high-adrenaline thrills like abseiling and water activities to inspiring talks from world-renowned adventurers Bear Grylls OBE and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the festival has something for everyone. Attendees can also dance the night away with live performances from top artists, including Sam Ryder, The Feeling, Jake Shears, McFly, and many more.

With only 250 family weekend tickets remaining, interested individuals are encouraged to act quickly to secure their spot. For those looking for a unique family getaway with more green time than screen time, Gone Wild Festival is the perfect choice. Let your children discover their wild side, embrace the great outdoors, camp under the stars, and get ready for four days of family adventure.
