Wickham Festival 2024 will be our 18th birthday (including two years at Stokes Bay & 2020 cancelled).  We’re extremely proud of our history and how the event has grown over the years into what it is today.  There have been some incredible artists and highlighting a few favourites is impossible.  So instead in this section you’re able to see all the line-ups we’ve had over the years.  We thank all those artists and everyone that has attended Wickham Festival since we began.

Our website has grown with the festival and  has seen a lot of changes.  We’re constantly working to keep it up-to-date…

In 2015 we rebuilt our website to include profiles of upcoming artists so you can do all your research right here.

It seemed a waste to remove these artist pages, so instead we’ve introduced an archiving system so that anything we add never gets lost.  For our most recent events you can read artist profiles, festival reviews in the media, galleries and more. We hope to keep those memories of some wonderful weekends alive, and look forward to many more.

Below is a complete A - Z list (past and present) of all artists that we've compiled a profile page for since 2015
