A bucket list performance for many artists, the lineup is always extraordinary, and this year will welcome headliners Coldplay, Dua Lipa, and SZA, with Shania Twain taking the Sunday ‘Legends’ slot. 

Along with a strong focus on sustainability and social consciousness, the festival offers an array of experiences, from theatre shows and poetry readings to interactive art installations and healing fields. VIP hospitality tickets provide access to restricted areas and facilities, and if camping amongst the sea of colorful tents and flags isn’t for you, opt for one of the site’s ultra-luxurious glamping suites.
