Stylist is hosting another sleep festival Restival after the success of our January event, and this time it’s digital.
Restival, a festival all about sleep, kicked off in style in January with a host of famous faces and expert-led talks helping us all sleep a little more soundly. The combination of non-stop social media updates, stressful jobs and pandemic-fuelled anxiety has led to sleepless nights for many. Restival was born with the aim of uncovering the secrets to a perfect night’s rest which is now more important than ever.
But if you missed our January event, don’t despair. Restival is back, and this time it’s digital. Join the Stylist team – and plenty of sleep experts – and learn more about sleep.
Restival is headlining The Great Feast of London on Sunday 5th July from 8-10pm.
