If Burning Man and Coachella decided to elope and run off together to the English countryside the result would be akin to the Wilderness Festival, a unique blend of music, pioneering live performances, talks, debates, theatrical spectaculars, health and wellbeing and culinary delights. Audible UK was right at the center of the four-day festival this summer, hosting a live audio-first stage that celebrated the power of the spoken word with engaging and insightful talks, debates, discussions and performances.

Leading talent headlined the Audible Live Stage, such as director, actor, activist and #MeToo advocate Rose McGowan, TV presenter and award-winning radio presenter Dermot O’Leary, Sunday Times best-selling author and comedian Adam Kay, and Sunday Times best-selling author Scarlett Curtis, among many others.

Of course we recorded these exciting discussions and performances. The Audible Original, Audible Live from Wilderness Festival 2019, is available to listeners in the UK, Australia and Canada. Dermot O’Leary’s interview of producer John Lloyd from the Audible Live Stage will be included in his new Audible Original People, Just People, launching this fall.
