    Wickham Music Festival Thanks for your juggling act! There is still 5 hours of amazing live music ahead! Thank you😊👏👏👏👏👏

    Hi all. I hope Peter doesn’t mind me posting this. I know it all seems a bit difficult at the moment trying to get parked, get on site, see your favourite band etc etc. But knowing the Wickham team they will be working their collective arses off to try and rectify the issues. Maybe consider the difficulties all the artists/crew have had with zero work for the last eighteen months.... no work means no income. Peter has kept the collective spirit of artists/crew alive by putting on the festival. Just give him, the team and the stewards a little bit of love. Can’t wait to see you all on Sunday night with Edward II. This isn’t meant to be an attack, just trying to inject a little perspective. Have a fab (albeit muddy) evening and help keep the festival spirit alive.

    Well done for going ahead and I can see you have a lot on your plates, but the Day car park entrance was impassable at 5pm. You need to plan how cars will egress while you still have some daylight, please.

    Will you be finishing the main stage at all this weekend? Looks like you didn't start early enough... Such a shame for day ticket holders and thie traders down by the main stage area who aren't getting any traffic tonight.

    Perhaps you need to ask people not to be seated. As there is now no main stage the numbers at the tented stage are going to be huge. Be nice if everyone could see.

    Sorry to trouble you whilst are you busy but I have another gig this evening but I was wondering if I could still arrive around 2220 & catch the end of Tankus & the comedy too? Also, thanks in advance for getting the festival on.

    No staff anywhere, no information. It rains in England in the summer. You just weren’t ready

    Where's John Otway & The Big Band | The 1865 ???

    Have fun you two!!!😀

    Reading the comments thank god I didn’t buy a ticket

    Why have that number of chairs allowed in the big top in these tough circumstances when it is going to be very busy 😱

    The music has been on for a while still a big que not good 😡

    Ha ha

    What's the official response regarding not taking card payments inside?

    Can you tell me if the crowdfunder reception is on and if so where is it? No one knows! If it’s been postponed fair enough but just would like to know😁

    Paul Anthony

    David Gussman- comments😂

    Thanks for all your hard work folks! So wonderful hearing live music again. ❤

    Can’t find the real ale bar but I have the plastic beaker.

    The Festival has made the ITV local news now 😪

    A major announceent needs to be made......not everyone has fbk or even a phone ! Heresay for ages now. Appreciate the problems but people just need to know.

    😭 SAS Band and Tankus the Henge now clash!! Oh well...

    Bit disappointed with the lack of shuttle bus…we waited an hour and a half in the rain but it was a no show so decided to come home to Portsmouth and try again Tom….I’d there not a shuttle bus? It says in the program every 25 mins when the festival is open?

    Hoping we can exit the site from the emergency exits rather than braving the very slippery hill in the pitch black.

    Is more straw going to be put down so its actuallu accesible to and from the big top and quay west stage?? Its incrediblu unsafe rn

    Can’t wait to perform Saturday!

    Have a great time! (Five years since I was there 😢)

    So disappointed 😞 came for my husbands birthday but waited over an hour to get in and leaving after an hour. Absolutely nothing open for children to do, main stage not open, half things advertised not on and place is a mud field. Now waiting in car park to try and get out as cars stuck. I understand u can't help the weather but this should have been rescheduled. It is dangerous

    What’s happened to the first class showers/facilities which are supposed be on every camping field? And can we have some soap in decent ladies toilets please

    Pretty awesome line up

    It's a death trap for those with wheelchairs or mobility issues.

    So excited to be here, al camped up and ready to see some great music Pretty please can someone sort out the loos in the quiet field, did report it to site staff but know they are busy. Thanks 🎉🎉

    Great night in the campsite last night. Lets do this!

    Food until 02-00 am

    All the best Wickham Music Festival 💙

    When does the festival site open? We were told 4pm but now being told it's delayed?

    Have a great weekend , so good to see you up and running

    On our way to Wickham Music Festival. Sooo excited

    Any updates on parking?

    Really disappointing that the organisers have cancelled so many acts which attracted me to buy tickets in the first place. Looks like Los Straightjackets have pulled out now too. Not great.

    Glad to be here but there is no beer and no ability to pay by card. Could be a sober event 😳 Wickham can you give a little update on what's occurring?

    I should be there but instead am stuck in hospital in Exeter - always a fabulous festival and I will be back next year

    What happened to the decent loos and showers? Only portaloos with no toilet paper or sanitiser and nowhere near enough for the number of campers here!

    The toilets are not flushing no loo no hand sanitizer and there are to few in the camping field . I feel Wickham promised things and have nt delivered.

    Bit disappointed with the lack of shuttle bus…we waited an hour and a half in the rain but it was a no show so decided to come home to Portsmouth and try again Tom….Is there not a shuttle bus? It says in the program every 15 mins when the festival is open?

    There's a black Volvo parked by the camping area near the big green house that has left all its windows open and it's now raining quite heavily.

    Is the opening time delayed? We just got sent back and the stewards don’t seem to know anything?

    What time can we get wristbands please?

    Best food and the cheapest in wickham festival

    does anyone know if there is breakfast at the community centre this year

    Wickham Music Festival We’re not camping but we’re coming to the opening concert tonight. Will it be obvious where we should park? And I’m guessing it means there’ll be a ticket/ wristband exchange open? Thanks😁
