Wickham Festival News

2017 is around the corner and we wish you all a Happy New Year

Tomorrow will be your last chance to save £40 on every adult season ticket to next year’s Wickham Festival.  We’re assembling an incredible line up for 2017.  They’ll be many welcome returns for the likes of The Levellers, 10cc, Seth Lakeman, Eliza Carthy, Show of Hands, and Oysterband …

As always they’ll be many debuts from a wide range of artists.  To celebrate our 10th birthday at Wickham we wanted to include artists that you might expect to see at a carnival delivering music with passion that will get you on your feet …

We’ll be supporting local artists and have not yet announced any of these acts.  Our friends at Key West Studios are working hard to bring you the very best Hampshire has to offer.  We are committed to supporting local bands and don’t think any other event will showcase all the talent we have on our doorstep.  Will Winters Hill make a welcome return?

So with our usual mix of established artists, debut acts you haven’t seen before, and local bands … we’re counting down the days to Wickham Festival 2017.  We’ve been voted Britain’s best festival for a capacity under 15K and are rated by the Guardian as one of the best boutique and family friendly festivals …

We wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and hope you’ll join us next summer.

    The Longest Johns … Yaay!!Windjammer would be an incredible addition to the line up. Pretty please 🙏🏻😊

    Manran !! 👍

    Reckon you still have room for Xander and the Peace Pirates🤞

    Was surprised how far down the poster Martin Stephenson and the Daintees are, but I s'pose it's a good few years since the amazing Boat to Bolivia. Top of my list for certain, followed by Jim Moray, Katherine Priddy and The Men They Couldn't Hang.

    Please please can we have The Outcast Band

    Finbar Fury for Sunday ?
