KT Tunstall is our latest confirmed headliner for Wickham Festival 2017

We’ve just updated our site with even more artists to join an already incredible line up for Wickham Festival 2017.  We’re delighted to announce that KT Tunstall is our latest confirmed headliner.  She’ll be appearing on Thursday 3rd August along with 10cc, Boo Hewerdine and Andy Fairweather-Low amongst others.  She’s at the top of her game having released KIN, her fifth studio album, at the end of 2016.  She’ll be sure to perform brand new tracks from this successful album alongside some old favourites…

As ever you can always expect more of the unexpected when you visit Wickham this summer with the likes of John Otway, rock and roll’s greatest failure…

We’re also pleased to announce The Men They Couldn’t Hang will be performing on Saturday 5th August 2017.  In 1991 they performed a reunion concert at London’s Town and Country Club. That night they played to a sell-out crowd and to show why they had become of one of the most missed bands on the circuit. The video below contains some footage of that legendary night.  Get your headphones out and turn it up loud, they’re a fantastic band to see live and we can’t wait…

Here is a list of all the artists recently added to our line up:

Please follow our Facebook or Twitter pages for the very latest news of artists announced.  You can still save £30 on ‘earlybird’ season tickets if you book by March 31st.

    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.
