GOOD VIBES ONLY
Lovefit Festival unfolds in the laid back, fun and informal setting of the beautiful Kent countryside over three blissful summer days. It’s all about non-pretentious fitness, fun in the sun and foodie treats set to a soundtrack of summer tunes – it all makes for a truly magical weekend.
Seeking to escape city life and find rejuvenation in nature? Then why not try SUP (stand-up paddleboard) yoga on the lake, hot tubbing in the dreamy sanctuary spa, wild swimming, hot yoga in the Fierce Grace yurt or chill out in the swinging tree hammocks.
If you’re a sweat-seeking adrenaline junky, there’s blood-pumping Rambo sessions, obstacle course training, beach volleyball, an outdoor Rebel1 spin studio and box jumps, battle ropes and kettlebells in the Forest Gym – set against a background of live music from the LoveFit DJs. I’m getting FOMO just thinking about all the incredible array of classes on offer!
But the main stage is really where it’s at with some of our favourite Instagram stars: Carly Rowena, Charlotte Holmes and Kim Hartwell leading the sweat sessions. Plus Ministry of Fitness, Broga and even Mr Motivator will be strutting his stuff in his infamous spandex. (If that’s not a reason to catch a train down to Sevenoaks, then I don’t know what is!)
Lovefit Festival offers a unique mix of music from stars like Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay, SG Lewis, Nike’s yoga trainer and stellar DJ Jessica Skye and Radio 1 star Danny Howard. The aim of this festival is to lose yourself in the moment and we can’t think of a better way to do that than dancing deep in the enchanted forest.
As for tasty edible treats, there will be a huge selection from some of the leading foodies around. Meat eaters, vegans and vegetarians are all catered for so think burgers, falafel wraps and pasta protein boxes from Fit Delis; specialist vegan döner and vegan baklava by What The Pitta; amazing frozen coconut yoghurt from FroByJoy; totally instagrammable fruit bowls from House of Acai; and a world of organic smoothies, juices, flapjacks and soups from Strawberries and Greens.
There will also be cocktails from Wonder Bars made using fresh fruit and berries in place of refined sugars, plus skinny Prosecco, gin, tequilas, a gluten-free beer on offer.
SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS
Camping out in nature is all part of the festival experience, but for visitors looking to upgrade to something a little more VIP, LoveFit has partnered with the Pop Up Hotel who specialise in boutique-style glamping accommodation, from bell tents through to deluxe tent houses.
So picture the scene: you and your BFF looking out across a rolling green estate covered in glitter and flowers garlands, as the sun sets on an endorphin-filled day and beats pump out across the forest – doesn’t it sound like the dream?
So what are you waiting for? Buy your Lovefit ticket and we’ll see you in the forest!
