2021 Line Up
"A fun filled weekend for all the family"
About Wickham FestivalWickham Festival is a 4-day music & arts festival held every August in a stunningly beautiful rural location near the historic village of Wickham in Hampshire. With live music on four stages plus a host of other entertainment, Wickham is rated by many as one of the safest, most relaxed and family-friendly festivals in the UK. We were voted Best UK Festival, capacity under 15000 at the Live UK Music Business Awards in October 2015. This January we won the Best Festival category in the local Culture Guide Awards. Each year we introduce new ideas and keep what works, so please get involved on our social channels to send us feedback ... good or bad. We already have some great plans for 2020 and can't wait to put this into action.
What happened in 2019?Wickham Festival 2019 was headlined by Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, Level 42 and The Proclaimers. Other notable acts included two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee / GRAMMY Award winner Graham Nash, Judy Collins and The Kiefer Sutherland Band. We honestly felt this was our best ever line up and yet again exceeded all previous ticket sales. As ever we aimed to make improvements over our previous events so upgraded The Village Stage size and added new screens to give it equal billing with The Valley Stage. We tried new attractions like the very popular silent disco. We added 28 acres of wonderful grassed fields so all camping was on grass. With Wickham Festival 2020 cancelled due to Covid-19 we can't wait to get back on track and bring you Wickham Festival 2021!
We’re somewhat overwhelmed by the videos that get posted on YouTube after our events. They capture some wonderful memories and we can’t thank you enough for your creations. We’re not quite sure how we’ve managed to establish a regular audience with such a friendly outlook. We salute everyone that has visited us in the 18 years since we began. But who knew Wickham Festival was a hotbed for talented movie making? Here are some of our favourite videos.
