Through the Forest we walked, searching for our place to dance and let go. For a moment forgetting about the outside world and immersing ourselves amongst laughter, nature and friendship. Forbidden Forest was born. Founded in 2016, Forbidden Forest is a magical place where we unite to celebrate our love of music, nature and dance. Our stunning home, Belvoir Castle (meaning beautiful view) is located in hundreds of acres of lush forest, surrounded by rolling hills as far as the eye can see and steeped in history dating back to 1067. This magical eighth edition has grown to welcome a Forbidden Family of more than 30,000 gathering in the woods. Expect the best of the best talent across House, Tech House, Techno and D’n’B, with a line up of over 50 outstanding artists, providing a stand-out soundtrack for a forest rave like you’ve never experienced before. Forbidden Forest is set across four stages within four unique areas of the one-of-a-kind festival backdrop: The Bunker, The Manor, The Reactor and new for 2023, The Castle. Together with our Forbidden Family, we have created an environment where all are equal and all are united by the love of electronic music.
