The fifth season of Wilderness Festival 2015 closed on Sunday, following a weekend of blue skies and summer sunshine, eclectic music, gourmet food, wild swimming, inspirational theatre, learning, literature, arts, culture and rejuvenation. For four days, the Wild Ones became ancient mariners and merfolk, resplendent in sequins, feathers, glittering with every step, vintage aviators and goggled steampunk panthers and sovereigns in their finest regalia, enjoying everything that Wilderness had to offer.
The three headliners of Wilderness 2015, Bjork, George Clinton, Parliament & Funkadelic and Ben Howard provided special moments throughout the weekend. Friday headliner Bjork sparked an electrical excitement in the crowd as the Wild Ones awaited the lady of the hour, who appeared resplendent in a red Markus Wernitznig dress and mask by JT Merry. Her set opened in a flourish of dazzling fireworks for ‘Notget’, before continuing along a kaleidoscopic journey for the final celebration of her spectacular tour, a very special ‘Vulnicura’ festival finale, peppered with classic moments including ‘Hunter’, ‘Army of Me’ and ‘Hyperballad’ that culminated with the explosive ‘Mouth Mantra’, followed by ‘Mutual Core’, and closing with the epic ‘One Day’.
