The Dhol Foundation (DJ Set)

With The Proclaimers having to cancel their Wickham appearance on Saturday due to ill health Eric Bibb will now headline Main Stage 1 on Saturday night instead of Main Stage 2. And we’re delighted to have secured The Dhol Foundation for a DJ Set to close Main Stage 2 on Saturday night.

Established in 1989, The Dhol Foundation began as a small class in slough with only a few friends asking Johnny Kalsi for Dhol drumming lessons. A couple of weeks went by, and those friends bought friends of friends and so on… One class turned into several! Before we knew it we became the first-ever dhol class/academy in the UK, creating a new breed of modern dhol players that became quickly in demand!

Back in 2019 the wonderful Johnny Kalsi (also of The Afro Celt Sound System) agreed to be our first-ever Festival Patron. Johnny has performed at Wickham in several guises over the years and says he loves our Festival.

Johnny commented:
After being associated with Wickham Festival for many years, it’s an honour to become the first Patron/Ambassador of this Incredible family festival that has been voted the best Family Festival in the UK. I feel proud to wave the Wickham Festival Flag and I sincerely hope to uphold the reputation of the festival as the “Face of Wickham Festival”.
