Wickham Festival News

Have you got your tickets yet? If so get involved on our social channels!

We’ve less than 30 camping tickets left and are likely to sell-out in the next few days. If you know of anyone thinking of camping who has yet to buy a camping ticket please advise them to do so before it’s too late.


Back in the day we used to have a forum hosted on the website where you could discuss all things to do with Wickham Festival.  But times have changed and it’s all social media these days so please don’t forget to follow our channels on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.  We’ll do our utmost to respond to any questions and provide you with the latest updates leading up to our event.

We’ll post any updates we make to the website right here in our news section (all stage times are very nearly compiled) but you can be alerted as soon as we do this via our social channels.

Also for those on Instagram, we’d love for you to share any pictures with your news of getting ready for Wickham Festival 2017.  Just use #wickhamfestival for your pictures to feature on our Instagram feed here:

Got a new outfit?  Packing the camper van? Setting off from far and distant places?  According to our FB comments we’ve got someone travelling from Sydney … we’d love a picture of you setting off!  Or if you’re performing, got some insights of your preparation?  Please share your build-up to motivate us all in having a cracking weekend of fun and meet some new friends as they spot those new wellies you’ve raved about on Instagram.

    He's played & recorded with Paul Simon; Eric Clapton; James Taylor; Alison Krauss; Elvis Costello and The Transatlantic Sessions. You can read about this remarkable musician here: jerrydouglas.com/bio/

    Fabulous news. We look forward to hearing him. We’d have also liked to see award winning blues guitarist Dom Martin in the lineup. Hopefully one year.

    You really have to see this guy,along with the other musicians he will be bringing along...World Class stuff....

    Never heard of them but now I will get a chance to hear just what has made them a 16 times Grammy winner. Cool. 😎
