As different to the fashion following drug haze mud fests as you can find, this Buddhist even is a colourful, clean living celebration of life, which translates to a musical line up you haven't heard of and group yoga and meditation classes. The main aim of this festival is to help you live positively, and purposely, and thus be happy, and we could all do with a bit of advice on how best to achieve that. If you're not getting your answers via meditation there are also talks and sessions from Buddhist teachers and discussions on how to live well within today's society.

There are three things you need to be aware of: the strongest drink you'll be offered is a brew of chai and herbs, there's a no drug policy and it costs £20 for car parking. Supposedly in order to lower the festival's carbon footprint. Buddafield has been running annually for more than 15 years, usually mid July.
