Wickham Festival 2020 artists announced so far

We hope you’ve all had a fanatics Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  We have just updated our website to include the listings for our 2020 line up so far.  This is just the start as we have many more announcements to make in the coming months including our main headliners.  Some notable acts include Leo Sayer, The South, and Jim Cregan.

Leo Sayer has had No. 1 singles and albums across the world with a string of highly polished mainstream pop hits in the late ’70s. Now this Ivor Novello Award-winning singer-songwriter will be joining us at Wickham Festival 2020.

His musical career began as the leader of Terraplane Blues Band in the late ’60s. He went on to form Patches with drummer Dave Courtney in 1971.  His song “Long Tall Glasses” made the top 10 in America in 1975. In 1976, he released Endless Flight featuring the number 1 singles “You Make Me Feel like Dancing” and “When I Need You” selling over a million copies in America. Following Endless Flight, Sayer became a regular in the American Top 40.  He began the 1980s with “More Than I Can Say” that reach number 2 in America.

The South (formerly The Beautiful South), is the new incarnation of the band and is as popular as ever going down a storm at Wickham Festival in 2015 and 2018. With 15 million sales and a string of top 20 hits in their repertoire, you are guaranteed to be singing along to such tunes as Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10, Song For Whoever, Old Redeyes and the band’s UK Number 1 A Little Time.

Jim Cregan and his band “Cregan & Co” will be at Wickham in 2020 performing many of classic rock & pop anthems on Sunday 9th August.  He was a member of Family & Cockney Rebel (his is the guitar solo on ‘Come Up And See Me, Make Me Smile’).  He was also Rod Stewart’s Musical Director for two decades, co-writing & producing many of his greatest hits.
