About

Summer sounds & outward bounds


Somersault is a festival with a new vision. A true summer holiday experience packed full of music, adventures and the best of outdoor living. Somersault is back for 2015 after its sell-out debut saw a previously unimagined festival concept come to life.

Created by the team behind the award-winning Wilderness Festival, Somersault promises five days of stripped-back happiness and blissful outdoor life. With seaside escapades, field trips, trekking, mountain biking, horse riding, surfing, craft and culture, wellbeing and yoga and other excursions augmenting the international music programming.

Long table feasts from headline restaurant partners sit alongside landscape theatre and outdoor spectacles. A riverside wellbeing area nestles close to a secret forest glade where late night parties hum. Alternative circus and street theatre meet international music stars. Archery, falconry and survival camps beside volleyball tournaments. The scope of what’s on offer is truly vast.

Somersault’s home is a magical, rambling corner of North Devon. A mystical garden punctuated with lakes, 18th century temples, breath-taking viewpoints and the river Bray. Rolling hillsides, majestic trees, endless skies. The perfect place for camping out under the stars, for adventure, exploring, outdoor pursuits, tree-climbing, nature-loving and seaside adventures. Castle Hill is just 19 miles from Croyde – North Devon’s epic sandy surf beach and village steeped in old-world charm.

Our festival vibe is special: inseparable from that uniquely west coast, laid back state of mind. Our partners Surfers Against Sewage are a huge influence and champion our environmental values. The environmental charity protects the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches via community action, campaigning, education and scientific research. They offer a fantastic presence at the festival, co-ordinating off-site surf escapades and curating an onsite programme of music, art, talks and plenty more.

Relax in nature and revel in the Somersault vibes. Your five-day holiday starts here.
