Cocktails, Deckchairs & Hammocks!

We always endeavour to respond to feedback and are trying some new ideas this year that have been suggested to us.  This includes a brand new “Chill-Out Zone” with cocktail bar, deckchairs and hammocks!  We’re hoping this will provide the perfect area to recharge your energy.

We’re planning to locate this area alongside the Cinema Tent and Digital Funfair so whilst the kids enjoy some entertainment you’ll be close by having a break before deciding which stage to visit next.  To celebrate our 10th birthday at Wickham, we’ve got some of our favourite artists returning this year. Picture this … Andy Fairweather-Low after a stint in a hammock with cocktail to hand singing classics…

… that was 1975, very few artists keep entertaining like this …

Nearly all kids’ entertainment is included with entrance so a cheeky hammock based Mojito should be within budget.  We always appreciate your comments and ideas via Facebook & Twitter so please keep them coming.  We’ve just cracked 14K followers on Facebook and over doubled both our Twitter & Instagram followers since this time last year.

As ever, and since most our visitors are based around Hampshire, we’ll be supporting a local charity.  Not for the first time we’ll be supporting and raising awareness for the incredible Two Saints charity that help the homeless across south Hampshire.

Let’s just say this last weekend has had a *spot of rain* so fingers crossed the heavens have emptied and that summer Wickham sunshine will bless us again.  Tickets are selling fast but still available here.

    Dreadzone 👍 Matthews Southern Comfort ✌️ ... my 1st Wickham festival - really looking forward to it. May the sun shine on us all Jenny Todd ☀️😊😎🎶

    We've booked this Paparazzi Papparassi Pete Evans can't wait.

    Great line up.

    https://youtu.be/LeHkQYDoVJ0 if the crowd can match this when the proclaimers are on they’ll hear it in Edinburgh!

    I particularly Love Level 42 ! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ 👍

    Who the hell is Frank Turner ?

    I recommend to anyone THE ALABAMA 3 ive seen them a few times great albums and great live.

    Great line up all round but Judy Collins is the icing on the cake .She and Joan Baez ( who l recently saw on her farewell tour )inspired me to sing and enjoy a lifetime of folk .

    Better line up than Beautiful Days and get to stay in my county. Im in!

    Blimey that’s a pretty eclectic bill!?!? 🤔

    Unfortunately I’m at another shucks

    Back in 1974, did I ever think I'd see a billing for a festival in 45 years time in which Graham Nash and Judy Collins were on the same bill as Gilbert O'Sullivan. Woodstock seems a long way away!

    How on earth is Lucinda Williams so far down the bill?

    Frank Turner.... absolutely awesome always, Lucinda Williams.... long been a fan but never seen her live, Graham Nash... legendary. Cracking line-up that just keeps getting better 😁

    Afro Celt and The Spooky Men. Can't wait.

    Richard O'Brien now if you want to do a festival as a punter, this is my perfect line up ...

    The Proclaimers. I'm gutted I can't steward this year. I'm having my knee done.

    good lord have they been raising the dead Looks a great line up though

    Saw lindisfarne when I was 16 loved them Graham Nash one of my favs and Mathew southern comfort joyo xx

    Worth the ticket price for level 42 alone,

    How much are tickets including small campervan?

    Excellent lineup.

    Brilliant line up and this year I can’t go😞

    And us, Shirley Knot, singing shanties on Saturday afternoon

    Pity I'm already booked into New Wine that week.....

    Amazing what you can find on ebay. Are 13 year old Wickham Festival flyers really worth 99p? Do you keep any old programmes, tickets, t-shirts, posters or other memorabilia? ... See MoreSee Less

    We have some t-shirts signed by Festival headliners. Should we sell them on ebay or run a free competition with them as prizes?

    I'd like a copy of the one I played at where my write up is above rolf Harris 🤣

    You'd be surprised! I had people come into the shop (A Slice Of Vinyl) and ask for the posters to frame.
