Preview: Wild Fields, Norfolk’s first socially distanced festival

This weekend, the Norfolk Showground will be hosting Wild Fields, this year’s incarnation of 2019’s Wild Paths. It’s described as the region’s first ‘socially distanced’ festival, with help from Summertime Social, the Showground, and Norwich City Council to ensure safety. Guests are assigned a 3m by 3m ‘pod’ for the festival which can contain a maximum of six attendees.

Created by Benjamin Street, the festival features an impressive line-up despite COVID restrictions, including indie rock band Gengahr and alternative/indie band Another Sky on Saturday, and jazz band KOKOROKO and singer Jordan Mackampa on Sunday, amongst many others that you can see here. As well as those acts, Gail will feature on Saturday and Kitty Perrin will feature on Sunday, both being UEA students.
