Stage times announced for The Quay West Cave and Acoustic Stages

For the first time there will be four stages at Wickham Festival this year.  We’ve just added stage times for our Quay West Cave, sponsored by Quay West Studios, and Acoustic Stages on our line up pageThere’s a huge variety of artists including Vincent Treacey who will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday. He took a 10 year break from music and has only recently come back.

Another one to watch is Alice Milburn, a 16 year old from Southsea with a bluesy jazzy voice.  Last year she sang at the Albert Hall for an audience including David Cameron and The Queen.  She will be performing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday.

Tom and Ash are back and their extraordinary duo of intricate, ‘obnoxiously talented’ classical guitar techniques has consistently impressed. They always deliver this up with the minimum of fuss in a bizarrely relaxed style whilst their guitar work is impeccable.  They will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Sunday.

We welcome Calvin Thomas to the Quay West Cave on Sunday.  He has a stunningly beautiful voice, and has been playing recently on tour in the West Country alongside festival favourite ‘Beans on Toast’.

He is one of three up and coming artists we have this year coming from Plymouth. The others are Jack Cookson and Alice Gullick.  Jack was nominated for this year’s Young Folk Awards and is touring Europe with Hattie Briggs.  Alice Gullick has worked with Calvin and Jack in the past on several tracks and also looks to be blossoming into a stunningly well-regarded voice on the youth folk scene.

    About 2/3 of those artists have been epic. I'd have included Kate Rusby, Frank Turner and the Treacherous Orchestra.

    loved bellowhead ,jools holland, richard thompson, proclaimers, frank turner,lindisfarne, graham nash and gilbert. would love to see jack savoretti ,marillion,

    Great memories. Definitely Carlos Núñez was our favourite artist and one we were proud to perform with.

    4 years Back with Roger Taylor! ❤️

    Ferocious Dog, Tom Robinson, Tankus the Henge, and the fabulous Grace Petrie.

    Police Dog Hogan would fit in great!

    Roger Taylor with S AS Band. ....were amazing!!!!

    I loved Le Vent du Nord last year. I know you’ve had them many times, because Jenni knows the lads well, but it was my first time seeing them and they are just amazing.

    I recognize an awful lot of those photos :-)

    Loved Kiefer Sutherland and his band, also 10cc, Ralph Mctell and Graham Nash

    Comment on Facebook

    I'm Ferg... could have been a subtle request that I play there next time round !?! 😉 www.facebook.com/nothingconcrete1

    Haha I love it! 😂😂 Wickham Music Festival I was looking for Fergus Cameron !!! Him and Sid disappeared but we found them chilling at their camel camp tent 😎😂 xx

    We're going through some photos of last year's Festival and this one puzzled us.

    I dunno ... but I saw this on 'Fans of Jackie Magazine ... it's from 1971.

    Well it's Ferg... Init? Lol

    Ferg Al Sharkey

    No! I'm Ferg! Or was it Spartacus? 😂

    Sophie Louisa Carter.....I think people are looking for answers 😂 x

    Was she wearing that wig for a bet though?

    I remember, she was amazing 💕thanks Wickham fest! Xx

    Still such a beautiful voice. Wickham is my very favourite festival.

    Loved seeing her ❤

    I saw her recently at G Live, she was amazing !

    Not bad for an 80 year old.

    A highlight. Loved seeing her live and hearing her stories of Leonard Cohen!

    Wasn't expecting anything, or from Nash's set, but they were both absolute highlights for me, not just here but for 2019. REAL professionals...

    She was amazing!

    Geoff Bland I was there - amazing!

    Brilliant set!

    Reduced me to tears x

    Mine too!
