The Innocent Smoothie Festival

Come the second Bank Holiday weekend in May we’ll be hitting innocent unplugged, a free, off-grid festival in a secret magical forest location free from, gulp, social media and WiFi. Heck there isn’t even any traditional electricity. But don’t worry, a silent festival wouldn’t be much fun so all power will be generated by solar power or people power (pedals to giant hamster wheels in case you’re wondering).

Expect great music from headline acts such as The Correspondents and Norman Jay, lycra-legged dance-offs with old school classic Mr. Motivator, inspiring speakers like Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh, Liberty London Girl blogger Sasha Wilkins and journo Grace Dent. Other activities include Laughter Yoga, a Morning Glory rave, exploring the woods with Fergus the Forager, creating herbal elixirs at the Abandoned Apothecary and a wood-fired spa with hot tubs, saunas and massages.

We are also promised lots of foodcarts serving delicious, locally sourced food throughout the weekend, a big banquet in the forest and the odd smoothie. Oh, and just for the record, anyone who’s caught dabbling on their devices will have to accept a penalty challenge so best get the social media in before you arrive. #offgrid anyone?

innocent unplugged, 23rd – 24th May, somewhere near Sevenoaks. Full details here
