More artists announced for 2020

Over this weekend we’ve updated our website with another batch of artists within our Line Up section. There’s some great new additions we’re excited to welcome to Wickham Festival 2020. As ever there will be several debut performances as well as those that have entertained us before.

What’s more, if you buy your tickets now we continue to be cheaper than Cambridge Folk Festival, Cornbury, Larmer Tree and Beautiful Days amongst others.

    Thea Gilmore I last saw her in Austin at the 2004 SxSW. Excellent artist. Her husband, Nigel Stonier is great too.

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

    Tuneless Choir?

    Did you ask Rob Clamp Music back? Really enjoyed their set!

    Great line up .

    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.

    Manran !! 👍
