2022 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 2021?Wickham Festival 2021 was headlined by Van Morrison, Deacon Blue, Fairport Convention & The South. The ever-popular SAS Band appeared, this time around featuring Graham Gouldman of 10cc, Steve Harley of Cockney Rebel, Tom Robinson, Toyah, & Madeline Bell. Other notable acts included Nick Lowe, Moya Brennan, & Eddi Reader. With so many festivals cancelled due to COVID-19 it was challenging to put on our event with so much to consider. Amongst many changes we more than doubled the size of our arena. These changes were further complicated by a deluge of rain and problems with our planned open-air stage. Despite all this we had a fantastic weekend of music last August and can’t wait for 2022 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.
