7 August 2021 / Kenwood House, Hampstead, London
One-day wellness and music festival with a Balearic spirit
Launched in 2021, Beat Retreat is a one-day music and wellness festival in London, merging the best beats with great food and calming wellness therapies.
Announced in April 2021, Beat Retreat's debut was set for Saturday 7 August 2021. The tranquil setting of Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath was chosen to guarantee the perfect backdrop for a day of healthy pursuits, such as yoga, stretching, mindfulness and meditation along with holistic talks and seminars from cutting-edge wellness practitioners. All the above is in the service of fostering an environment where attendees could break free of the walls built up in recent times and get back into nature.
Of course, no all-dayer is complete without a wide range of food and beverages. Beat Retreat’s food and drink offerings focuses on all the wholesome and locally sourced selections that the discerning healthy hedonist requires.
