An Independent festival, established for 16 years, the much loved, Wychwood Festival is a family favourite bringing together a plethora of incredible entertainment for everyone to enjoy including more than 100 acts performing across four stages.
Starting out as a World & Blues Music Festival, Wychwood has grown to embrace the spectrum of music genres that appeal to the whole family. Still retaining a core of World, Fusion, Blues and Indie music, across several of its stages, Wychwood always bring “divine” discoveries of new bands alongside established performers, along with award winning family activities, workshops, arts, kids entertainment, dance & comedy. In recent years the headliners are always a delightful surprise from a fantastic heritage of mainstream artists and this year, the organisers are proud to announce The Divine Comedy will be headlining the mainstage on Saturday night.
The Christians, whose Platinum selling debut album in 1987, bought us the hauntingly beautiful hits ‘Hooverville”, “Ideal World” & “Forgotten Town” & the mighty electronic, dub, reggae band Dreadzone who fused folk into their house music, with genre busting hits such as “Little Britain” back in the mid 90’s add to a very credible musical bonanza, along with returning favourites; Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, Merry Hell, Thrill Collins and Basil Brush.. whose legendary foxy humour lives on for all generations!
Situated on Cheltenham Racecourse, the festival has superb facilities for all weather and is easily accessible from Cheltenham town centre. Weekend festival goers can enjoy a range of on-site camping, local accommodation & good transport links, whilst local attendees have the option to enjoy weekend or day tickets. Children under 5 go for free.
