    Good things come in threes!  After announcing Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets plus John Otway & Willy Barrett for Wickham 2020 weve another artist announcement coming tonight.  A clue:  English indie-pop band, much requested by you, our audience.  Any guesses?

    Comment on Facebook

    Hmmm. Well most of the guesses so far have been wide of the mark. The band describe themselves as English indie-pop but maybe a better description would be to liken them to Molotov Jukebox, Electric Swing Circus, Holy Moly and the Crackers, Police Dog Hogan...

    Still got my fingers crossed for Midge Ure ❤️💜 Go on Wickham....you know you want to 😘

    Hope it’s S Club 7

    Still hoping for Hipsway 🤞🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 If I post often enough perhaps you’ll give in for some peace and quiet!!

    Travis. Now they would be a great addition to an already fantastic lineup.

    The Correspondents Caro Emerald Jamie Berry Feat The Speakeasy Three Dead south ( i wish but Canadian ) Caro Emerald Don Johnson Band

    Its Steps isn't it? I knew you'd give in one year if I kept going on about it!

    It’s not Fake Thackray is it??? 😀

    That'll be the Kooks then.... Where's my prize?

    Blur , The Smiths, Florence and the Machine, Gorrillaz, Lilly Allen, The Stone Roses, Pulp, The kooks, Keane, Jamiroquai, Noisettes, Kate Nash, Lighning Seeds, The Vamps, ok i am out of UK indie pop bands..🤔

    Dodgy? But would like to see the Divine comedy.

    The Dubliners!!

    The ballaugh’s Mike Wade 😍

    We’re hoping for Tears for Fears or Wilko Johnson not really Indie pop though!

    Forget Otway & Co and book The Slambovians!!!!!!!

    Gotta be The Lightning Seeds. Superb last time

    What’s that coming over the hill is it a monster. No it’s the Automatic.

    Since no-one's mentioned The Wonder Stuff yet, I will. Edit: oh, someone did. As you were.

    CoCo and the Butterfields flight brigade

    The Magic numbers the feeling the Lightning seeds scouting for girls KEANE

    Pulp, Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine or The Smiths.

    Alabama 3 ?

    Sorry I think The Automatic are Welsh.🥴

    Producer for Elvis Costello; Graham Parker and The Rumour; Dr Feelgood (for whom he co-wrote 'Milk and Alcohol'); and The Damned. A member of Brinsley Schwarz and Rockpile (with Dave Edmunds). A noted figure in power pop and new wave, he performed at the first Glastonbury Festival (and was invited back in 2019), released the first single on Stiff Records, and has recorded & produced many fine records of his own. Los Straitjackets from Surf City have been described as the world's leading instrumental guitar band. This will be a great night!

    A fabulous coup!! Wickham you just keep on pulling better and better announcements out of the hat - can't wait for this year's festival! :D

    Claire Askam

    Excellent!

    Thank you

    I have to say I went to see him a few years ago and was very disappointed - he played hardly any of his hits and his music wasn't of the style I was expecting. He's still a good musician and singer though, so I hope he plays a set suitable for the festival - including the hits you've mentioned, that we all know and love!

    Fantastic Wickham! Last seen with Rockpile January 1980, I recall a very boozy set up in Newcastle. Thanks, can't wait 😍😍

    cool, like a bit of Nick Lowe.

    Pamela Horrigan

    Bought Jesus of Cool and played it to death! Ace choice! 😉

    Bulls eye! They were fantastic at Engine Rooms last summer Top signing!

    Annie - just ‘wow’!!! 😀😀

    Richard Beechey Rod Marshall Steve Rawlings Bill Kennedy
