Wickham Festival 2018 line up pages updated with Squeeze to headline on Saturday 4th

As planned we’ve updated all our line up pages before Xmas to show the current list of artists appearing at Wickham Festival 2018. We’ve many more to come including our Thursday and Friday headliners. Our Saturday headliner will be The Ivor Novello Award winning Squeeze

To close Wickham Festival 2018 on Sunday we have folk legend Richard Thompson (Electric Trio Band). After being a founder member of Fairport Convention he’s gone on to win many awards and gained huge recognition for his talents…

There are plenty of other notable performers including Kate Rusby and The Undertones

We’re also bringing back some Wickham favourites who always get good feedback in our Facebook comments. For 2018 we’ll welcome back The Dhol Foundation, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Ferocious Dog, and Tankus The Henge amongst others…

Of course there are many artists we can’t wait to debut.  Here is Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys from Prince Edward Island…

We wish you all a Happy Xmas and hope you’ll join us next year. Don’t forget you can still save £40 by booking before 31st December. Here are all our artist pages we’ve compiled so far for 2018:
