Veuve Gets Hyperreal At Wilderness

Veuve Clicquot announces a twist to this year’s Wilderness festival and invites you to its “hyperrealism experience” in the rural idyll of Cornbury Park in August. Abigail Park

The debut sees Veuve Clicquot bring its creative, bubbly outlook to several festival locations. From 3rd to 6th August its famous yellow label will flutter in Cornbury Park amid Wilderness’s  own special mix of rousing live shows and experiences. Veuve Clicquot’s fun brand of hyperrealism will see champagne fans mingle with nature through the creative prism of tech, music and performance. In the picturesque setting overlooking the lake, guests can relax inside or out, as an extension of the surrounding landscape the space will be full of hanging foliage and vibrant pop-art inspired fruit adorning the bar.

The Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar will host numerous performances from visual dance piece Kimatica, who use body movement and interactive technology to amp up the surreality. Adding to Kimatica’s colour will be Veuve Clicquot’s signature Yellow Label and Veuve Clicquot RICH, a refreshing champagne dedicated to casual over-ice consumption. Food can be enjoyed at the Long Table Banquet with renowned chef Nuno Mendes, executive chef at Chiltern Firehouse and Taberna do Mercado, who will be creating a unique menu complemented by Veuve Clicquot’s Yellow Label on arrival.

 “It’s a perfect mix of foodie, arts and music, with a beautifully scenic backdrop, and all within a family setting,” said Nuno Mendes in his tribute to Wilderness. “I’m excited to be back and look forward to hosting a banquet this year.”

Elsewhere, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label will be available from five separate bar locations, including the Spa Bar and in Boutique camping. Wilderness festival headliners include the sparkling Two Door Cinema Club on Friday, Bonobo brings the heat on Saturday and the ever-now icon, Grace Jones on Sunday, her first ever Wilderness appearance.
