Wild Paths Festival

Wild Paths is a multi-venue, city-wide music festival in the heart of Norwich; a weekend of events taking over all of the city’s best-loved music venues and showcasing an eclectic mix of emergent and established artists.


There’ll be music from the likes of Jose Gonzalez, Simian Mobile Disco (DJ), The Magic Gang, Franc Moody, Crazy P (DJ), Puma Blue, Ruby Rushton, Black Honey, Demob Happy, Anna Meredith and many more…


 Alongside the music there’s also Wild Paths themed after-parties, drinks and networking events, open bowling parties, live art instillations and discussion panels (featuring artists and key figures from the music industry - such as Radio1’s very own Phil Taggart).


You can treat your tastebuds at local food pop-ups scattered across the festival site and wet your whistle with an exclusive Wild Paths beer, a Wild Paths cocktail or even a signature festival roast (coffee). All brought to you by the best local independent retailers.


The festivals mission is to bring artists of national and international notoriety to Norwich, and to shine a spotlight over the city and all the talent that resides here.



Scheduled to run from the evening of Friday 18th October (2019) until the night of Sunday 20th October, with exclusive pre-festival parties on Thursday 17th October.
