2019 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 2019 and can't wait to put this into action.
What happened in 2018?Exceeding all previous ticket sales, Wickham Festival 2018 was headlined by Squeeze, Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel. Other notable acts included Kate Rusby, Show Of Hands, The South, John Illsley of Dire Straits, and The Undertones. It really was a festival of incredible performances made all the more enjoyable by glorious sunshine over the whole weekend. We extended our late night comedy tent for those that still had energy after the music. This was headlined by Tom Walker a.k.a. Jonathan Pie.
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 17 years since we began. But who knew Wickham Festival was a hotbed for talented movie making? Here are some of our favourite videos.
