Wanderlust’s signature mindful triathlon, in partnership with adidas, comprises a 5k run or walk, a DJ-powered 90-minute outdoor yoga class presented by Liforme (hosted by Adriene Mishler and leading health guru and author Julie Montague; alongside Jonelle Lewis and Mona Lisa Godfrey, with Goldie on the decks), and a 30-minute guided meditation (led by Michael James Wong). You’ll also enjoy live music and DJs, artisanal vendors and local foods. TV presenter and host Will Sebastian will be the EMCEE for the day.

Adriene (pictured) will teach yoga alongside Julie Montagu on the main stage as part of her ‘Find What Feels Good’ tour. This is a rare opportunity to take a live class with world-renowned, US-based yogi Adriene in the UK.

This must-visit festival brings together a huge number of activities in a larger setting in the stunning outdoors with more experiences than ever, including cooking demonstrations, licensed bar and immersion zones, and the new Wanderlust Speakeasy – an intimate and casual lecture series venue, which offers the opportunity for festival goers to immerse themselves in the inspiring ideas of thought-leaders.

Speakers include Coco Tiekle on ‘The Beauty in Breaking’ – sometimes life throws us curve balls and we feel broken, but Coco draws on her own experience with loss, grief and mental health to show how to use this experience to come back more beautiful than before. Emily Clare Hill on ‘Bring the Art of Yoga to your Everyday’ (how to connect with the peace and calm that our practice installs when our outer environment takes its toll) and Gaur Gopal Das, the monk, personal coach, lifestyle and motivational strategist will be speaking on ‘The Secrets of Success’ (using examples from his life to enrich listeners with his timeless wisdom).

The new Tea Garden is an idyllic flower garden providing an escape from the business of life, whilst offering a series of open-air talks from inspirational mindful leaders, including plastics and sustainability from Lottie Bowser, yoga when pregnant from Katie Stockdale, Intuitive Eating from Pandora Paloma and Japonisme (forest bathing) by Erin Niimi Longhurst.

Wanderlust 108 regulars include the Kula Marketplace, showcasing 60 local craft vendors including clothing, jewellery, handcrafted items and a hugely diverse offering in new wellness products, plus a retail adidas x Wanderlust store experience housed in a 12m geodesic dome.

Local and organic food vendors include the return of The True North Café presented by Pollen + Grace offering both sweet and savoury choices and the option to pre-order Wanderlust’s signature picnic lunch, the Wanderbowl (pictured). Served in a biodegradable bowl, the Mexican-inspired vegan Wanderbowl features Mexican black beans and avocado with smoky roasted sweet potato, corn and coriander salsa, beetroot sauerkraut and a creamy chipotle dressing along with a Pollen + Grace Super Square, one piece of fruit and a refreshing drink. They'll also have their signature Beetroot Quinoa + Tahini Abundance Box and banana bread bar available.

Find Your True Fork presented by California Walnuts is also new for 2018 and will appeal to foodies who want to do more than eat at Wanderlust; festival goers can sign up for classes and presentations about healthy eating and ways to prepare delicious food, and will be introduced to new cooking techniques and products. Jasmine Hemsley, author of new book East by West, is among speakers and will be talking about the Ayurvedic philosophy of eating to nourish, sustain and repair.

Ayurvedic Garden presented by OMNOM provides a beautiful calm space where festival-goers can sit, talk, relax, learn and experience ayurveda. Every half hour OMNOM will have expert ayurvedic consultants speaking on the basics of the science behind the body. Meet with them and discover the ancient secrets of a healthy, happy life. An interactive quiz helps festival-goers identify their ayurvedic type. A special tri-doshic ayurvedic meal, as well as a range of ayurvedic mocktails and herbal teas, is available alongside healthy food-related products taking inspiration from different world cuisines and knowledge from ancient ayurveda, to revive the vitality and energy that the body craves. A combination of different stalls and boutiques will share ways to live naturally and achieve radiant physical, mental and spiritual health.

Alan Steel, managing director, Wanderlust says: “Wanderlust’s mission is to help people find their true north – to cultivate one’s best self. We do this by gathering experts, practices and recipes for living to lead people’s journey towards a mindful and inspired life. Fostering community sits at the heart of the Wanderlust mission and this year the festival is a true representation of the London wellbeing community.”
