"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 2022?Wickham Festival 2022 was probably our best ever, thanks in no small part to four days of glorious sunshine with barely a cloud in sight. So much better than the rain and mud of 2021! The festival was headlined by The Saw Doctors, Levellers, The Waterboys & 10cc. This was the only 2022 summer UK festival show for The Saw Doctors and their first for almost 10 years! We returned to our normal (pre-pandemic) site layout with two main stage Big Tops and far less walking distance compared to 2021. For the first time ever our whole arena field and all our camping fields were grassed. No more straw stubble! That’s an extra 28 acres of wonderfully grassed fields. We had a wonderful weekend of magical music in beautiful scenic surroundings and can’t wait for 2023 to unfold!
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.
