A festival free from drugs, alcohol and junk food is being introduced to the UK as a very different kind of festival experience.

People of all ages (under-18s go free) and dogs on leads are welcome to go along and play in the New Forest by the Solent at what is being dubbed as ‘the UK’s healthiest clean-living festival’.

Escape from the city

PhotographicBlonde_RF_Recce_22The time at RAW FEST is about sharing information, sparking conversation and inspiring change within an open forum environment.

It’s a chance to unplug from city life and get a massage, take a nap, eat vibrant food, explore, engage in a fun activity or just relax and enjoy! 

‘Clean and vital living’

Led by Ko Kawashima and founded by Lia Aquila, RAW FEST’s message has expanded to include many walks of life, from those with a contemporary mindset to families, business men and women and anyone who is curious about ‘clean and vital living’.

The retreat and festival will be taking place at Pylewell Park Manor and grounds in the New Forest, Hampshire. Camping is included in the ticket price and glamping is available at an additional cost.
