As Summer peaks, waves of grain blow confidently in the breeze and the leaves on the trees are yet to turn. A time to be thankful. A time when music and wellbeing become as important as the harvest and the seasons themselves.

Imagine an intimate place with infinite possibilities. Thought provoking and green thinking, with vegan eating and off-kilter sounds. Find a hidden bar for cocktails and dancing in the warped woods, among the ambient beats and the trees at Rookery Nook.

Hear Faithful Johannes weave spoken word into aural pleasure and Badger juxtapose melody and existential crisis in The Big Blue Tent, while the dark-wave electronica of Holy Braille lurks in the shadows with Vigilance State (amongst many more); surreal, dystopian and ancient lore.

Get delicious burgers, coffee, smoothies and pastries near the wishing tree (hang a wish on a magical branch). Relax, unwind and open your mind. An ancient orchard marks a peaceful zone. A secluded campsite is idyllic and quiet. The further you walk, the quieter it becomes.

A weekend of music, wellness and exploration in a magical garden somewhere in County Durham (the location will be revealed when you buy your ticket). There’s no place like Holme.

Holme Music and Wellness Festival takes place from Friday 8th-Sunday 10th July in County Durham.
