What to expect from north Cornwall’s magical music venue in 2018
Home to critically acclaimed and multi-award winning Leopallooza Festival since 2007, The Wyldes has built a rock-hard reputation for creating unforgettable experiences for adventurous music lovers. The custom-made event site, hidden away in a valley near Bude, is also a popular wedding venue, and the location for the Live in The Wyldes live music extravaganzas, featuring some of the biggest names in music.
The Wyldes also boasts some impressive green credentials that will impress ethically minded audiences. The site has been created and maintained using recycled and sustainable materials, sourced onsite where possible from the green fields and woodlands that cover the 100-acre site. It follows a 0% landfill policy across all events, with 90% of waste recycled and 10% made into fuel pellets. The Wyldes are working with Shelterbox and 1% For The Planet across all their events.
This year’s Live in the Wyldes season kicks off with Brit Award winning singer Paloma Faith. Returning to Cornwall after a popular Eden Session performance in 2015 Paloma will bring her eccentric, retro style and soaring vocals to wow locals and visitors. Spending 8 weeks in the top ten, and scoring Paloma her first UK number one album, ‘The Architect’ was propelled by the poptastic single ‘Crybaby’ and the stunning single ‘Guilty’. As one of the only British female artists this decade to have her last three albums go double platinum in the UK, her new album is currently on course to become her fourth in a row.
Live in the Wyldes co-founder Sam Dunnett said: “Off the back of some really well-received performances last year, we’re excited to enter our second year of Live in The Wyldes. A couple of us in the team have been lucky enough to see Paloma play live so we know for a fact that she will bring a really exciting show to the South West this summer.”
