Hello weekend. This one's bringing 48-hours of indulgence, from posh festivals to cocktails at the Gherkin and a healthy dose of Alexander Skarsgård.More
If 'festival season' makes you cringe at the thought of mosh pits in the mud, then you should give Wilderness a try. Dubbed 'the world's biggest dinner party', its achingly sophisticated line-up spans restaurant pop-ups from Michelin-starred HIX, a '20s themed champagne tent (left) by Laurent-Perrier, theatre from the Old Vic and intellectual stimulation in the form of political debates and mindfulness workshops. Not to mention Bjork selecting the festival as the only UK fixture to tour her new album. Exclusive indeed.
