Looking for the very best family-friendly festivals this summer? Well, add Wildflowers to that list as our 3-day festival of sound and colour returns bigger and better than ever! 

Wildflowers takes place at Hobbledown on August 16th, 17th and 18th 2019 and is the ultimate feel-good family festival. 

Featuring live music, interactive theatre, music and dance workshops, walkabouts and circus entertainment, there will be a jam-packed line-up of alfresco fun throughout the 3 days. 

There will also be craft stalls, street food stalls, 2 bars, and of course our famous paint throwing finale.

The Line Up  


The Gents – Feast your ears and eyes on the cheeky nonsense that is the Cockney Gents. Sing along to your favourite pop tunes in the cockney style with your very own Gents Kazoo. 

Beato Burrito – Trio of acoustic musicians who will be wandering around Hobbledown performing an eclectic mix of pop songs in a Mariachi style. 

The Cash Cows – Energetic and infectious act reworks our favourite tunes from across the last century in a quirky style that keeps us guessing. It’s upbeat, happy, dancing music in a skiffle, rockabilly, jazz style.
