There will be 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.

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 & Sustainability from Lottie Bowser; Yoga When Pregnant from Katie Stockdale; Intuitive Eating from Pandora Paloma and Japonisme (forest bathing) by Erin Niimi Longhurst.

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 legendary Wanderbowl. 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 infamous banana bread bar available: moist paleo banana bread with a choice of toppings including peanut butter, coconut yoghurt and raspberry compote.

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.
