Wickham Festival News

Two festivals for the price of one!

Wickham Music Festival 2022 is just days away but before then, on the Wednesday and Thursday daytime, our festival site is also being used for an exciting new Ideas Festival.

Ideas Festival is for creatives, disruptors, business owners and their teams and also those who are passionate about making the world a better place.

Speakers include Steven Bartlett of Dragons Den along with the founders of Calm, King of Shaves, Phones4U with sessions from TikTok, public speaking workshops, pilates, food & drink samples from the finest independents, sustainable start-up pitching, a boujee car boot sale, latte art master-classes, music and much more.

Anyone buying a weekend season ticket for the Wickham Music Festival can also gain free entry to the new Ideas Festival. That’s two festivals for the price of one! Note: If you’ve already bought a Music Festival Weekend Season Ticket, you will also be able to gain free entry to the new Ideas Festival on Wednesday/Thursday.

We’re also pleased to have our Acoustic Stage sponsored by The Guitar Store from Southampton again this year. We’ve just added stage times to our line up page.  Some great up-and-coming acoustic artists appearing there all weekend.

A stunning aerial view as this year’s Wickham Festival site starts to take shape.

Unused Tickets from 2021

Please note that if you are planning to attend with an unused ticket from 2020/2021, those tickets will NOT gain you entry to this year’s Festival. You need to return unused tickets to us via eastfest@tpalk21.com by Wednesday evening so we can send you new ‘rollover’ tickets for 2022.
