The Big Retreat Festival
One big, wonderful weekend in Wales
Tell me more: Welcome to The Big Retreat Festival: three uplifting, unforgettable days to relax, reflect and rebuild. Welcome to bands, books, inspiration, energy and calm – to an adventure for all five senses. Welcome to yoga, fitness, invigorating sea air, and a chance to leave the world behind on this stunning, unspoilt western edge of Wales. Your hosts will have left nothing undone to help you find your feel good!
The Big Retreat Festival is committed to catering to all tastes and filling your days with feel-good magic. So, it offers over 200 carefully curated events, experiences, workshops and talks in eight key areas included in the ticket price. From experiences you may have enjoyed before to discoveries that will blow your mind.
The main stage, overlooking the beautiful Cleddau estuary in the fresh open air of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is the feel-good heart of the festival.
A wide range of workouts, live music, comedy, meditations and inspiration from incredible headliners awaits. Try the latest trends in wellness, movement and mindful moments from some of the industry's top experts, including Maude Hirst, Dylan Ayaloo, the one and only Mr Motivator and comedy duo The Scummy Mummies.
By night, the dark sky turns into a celestial ceiling of activity with headline bands including Reef and Toploader taking to the stage. If you’re looking for a soulful reset and reconnect, then the Soul Space is for you. Want to know your Hatha from your Kundalini? How to make your singing bowl sing? Discover your limits and surprise yourself with a breathwork session in an ice bath. Or turn up the heat with a fire walking session, craft a mandala or discover the magic of a cacao ceremony.
