In an exhilarating announcement, TV survival expert Bear Grylls has unveiled an impressive roster of musical acts and speakers for the upcoming Gone Wild festivals in the picturesque settings of Norfolk and Devon. The announcement has sparked a ticket-buying frenzy, with availability now down to the final 30%.

Set against the stunning backdrops of Holkham Hall in Norfolk and Powderham Castle in Devon, the Gone Wild festivals are fast becoming the UK’s premier destinations for families seeking adventure, music, and a break from the everyday. This year’s line-up promises to be the most exciting yet, with Eurovision’s own Sam Ryder, the iconic McFly, and the dynamic Dick & Dom DJ Set leading a stellar cast of performers.

But Gone Wild isn’t just about the music. The festival offers over 100 free family-friendly activities designed to challenge, entertain, and inspire. From the adrenaline-pumping Gone Wild Assault Course to the tranquility of wild swimming, there’s something for every member of the family to dive into. And with children’s meals starting from just £5, it’s an adventure that won’t break the bank.

Norfolk’s debut and Devon’s return festivals will not only feature chart-topping music but also a lineup of motivational speakers, including Bear Grylls himself, the intrepid Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and rugby legend Alix Popham, among others. It’s a chance to hear from those who’ve pushed the boundaries of human endurance and been inspired by the natural world.

The daytime entertainment is just as thrilling, with Mr Motivator set to get hearts racing and Horrible Histories ready to provide a dose of laughter and learning. And for those who’ve ever dreamt of encountering dinosaurs, Dinomania’s ‘live dinosaur’ experiences are sure to be a hit.

Bear Grylls shared his enthusiasm for the festivals, emphasizing the aim to bring families closer to nature and each other. “It’s about sparking imagination, building confidence, and having a ton of fun in the great outdoors,” Grylls said, inviting families to enjoy everything from fire lighting to mudslide adventures.

Oli Mason, co-founder of Gone Wild and former Holkham employee, highlighted the festival’s inclusive spirit, noting, “Adventure should be for everyone, regardless of age or budget. We’re here to offer that in a safe, tech-free environment.”

With four-day family tickets starting from £495, offering a saving and including a tent pitch for a family of four, the festivals are accessible for all. For those preferring a touch more comfort, a variety of glamping options are available, ensuring everyone can find their perfect base for a weekend of adventure.

As tickets continue to sell fast, families are encouraged to secure their spot at what promises to be the most unforgettable family adventure of the summer.
