Introducing the headline acts for “The Quay West Cave”

We’re incredibly excited about the acts appearing in the all new “Quay West Cave” over the weekend.  Not least because this is the place to see the very best local artists and the wealth of talented musicians we have right here on our doorstep.  Wickham Festival has always been about supporting local artists and promoting our part of the world.  We’ve just added some profiles to tempt you over to this stage, so head on over!

Just Millie is a singer / songwriter based in Southampton and headlines on the opening night.  We’re pretty sure this artist has something different.

Kodiak Jack is a Portsmouth-based rock band, comprising Bryn Roberts (vocals), Matt Forster (drums), Kev Farren (bass), Jeff Arnold (lead guitar) and Jon Karp (guitar and backing vocals).  They will be headlining The Quay West Cave on Friday.

Richard Morris is based in Portsmouth and will be headlining our Quay West Cave on Saturday.

On Sunday we’ll be signing off Wickham Festival 2016 in some style with Winters Hill making a second appearance (having already entertained on The All Time Grates Stage on Friday).  Then Dan Eagle wraps things up as The Quay West Cave headline act.  He’s a singer / songwriter from Southampton and we’re sure his performance will be the perfect end to a weekend showcasing Hampshire’s finest talent.

The Quay West Cave is sponsored by Quay West Studios.  They offer a whole range of services to local musicians including full commercial production (running on Cubase), rehearsal rooms, music tuition, and equipment hire.

    Love The Longest Johns!

    So excited! Not sure how we are going to keep the stall staffed for their slot 🤣

    Don't forget Shamus O'Blivion and the megadeath morrismen

    We're sorry to report that London Irish band Neck will no longer be appearing at Wickham following the sad death of their frontman Leeson O'Keeffe from pancreatic cancer. 😢

    Steve Harley was an audience favourite at Wickham Festival, and a delight to work with. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
