Music

Set across 4 venues, Good Vibrations Society celebrates a wide variety of musical delights.

Our Bloom stage opens out into a natural amphitheatre and offers three days of incredible music, taking you on a journey through Soul, Blues, Funk, Jazz, Reggae, Dub, Hip-Hop and Acoustic.

Head to the Shala for an afternoon of intimate performances from acoustic artists, world music and blissed out electronic beats.

Into the twilight and through to the early hours The Warren, our new afterparty venue, keeps the energy flowing with a nightly selection of DJs.

Finally the Community Centre will play host to intimate acoustic performances.

 

Sound

At Good Vibrations Society, we really care about sound. All of our music venues feature state of the art sound systems deployed and engineered by people that love sound just as much as us. As last year, the Bloom stage will boast Martin Audio’s flagship MLAc multicellular loudspeaker array with a heavyweight sub section for an impeccable audio experience.

Wellness

Good Vibrations Society offers a weekend of regeneration and deep connection for those that seek it out. Sitting at the heart of the event is an ethos of personal development, community and connection to nature, each other and to ourselves.

The Shala is our onsite wellness centre with daily workshops and activities. Surrounded by nature, this space offers learning, personal growth, connection and progressive conversation with an extensive list of activities including yoga, meditation, workshops, dance and ceremonies, free for all ticket holders.

Also on offer:

  • Healthy food drink options, including vegetarian and vegan.
  • Guided walks through the glorious Ashdown Forest.
  • Wild Swimming in our beautiful lake.
  • Conscious Music. 

Ecology

The Ashdown Forest is wholly unique, teaming with flora and fauna. Good Vibrations Society exists so that this land can be maintained, experienced and supported year-round.

We have regular walks through the Ashdown Forest as well as talks on ecology, conservation and creating a sustainable future in our community centre.

We are collaborating with local and regional charities concerned with the maintenance of the surrounding ecosystem.

Families

Good Vibes is a safe, welcoming space for adults and children to play.

We have family-friendly camping areas in both the Boutique and main camping spots and engaging play opportunities at our Hive kids area.

As well as an area to play and make friends, The Hive hosts workshops and entertainment, along with guided walks and foraging trips out into the Ashdown Forest.

Children under 5 can come for free and we are offering family tickets with a built-in discount.

Food & Drink

The Dragonfly is our onsite village pub.

Overlooking the main stage area and ran by The Hop Yard brewery, the Dragonfly offers a range of high-quality beers, wines and spirits in a beautiful environment. Our beer garden is nestled in the trees of our magical forest and offers drinks in proper glasses and views of the bloom stage.

We have a seated vegetarian restaurant and a wide selection of local and sustainable food stalls to cater for all tastes and tummies.

Camping at Good Vibrations Society

Good Vibrations Society is dedicated to creating an open, safe and inviting campsite environment.

There is plenty of room to form your community and enjoy the beauty of the Ashdown Forest.

We have free warm showers, drinking water, toilets and an onsite supplies shop courtesy of Harvest Supplies, the Ashdown Forest based organic health food shop.

This is the perfect environment to enjoy the weekend.

Camping is included with every ticket and through our partner, the Happy Glamper, we can offer reasonably priced Boutique Camping options.

Local hotels are within a short drive but on-site is where the real magic happens!

Caravans and camper vans are also welcome, with paid options for electric hook-up, wifi, toilets and warm showers.

Experiences

Dotted throughout the woods we have a diverse selection of tents offering small scale therapies, workshops and unique experiences to explore and connect with yourself and others.
