Cheltenham

Wychwood Festival have announced their Saturday headliner... THE DIVINE COMEDY!!

Wychwood Festival

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 Divine Comedy are a chamber pop band from Northern Ireland, fronted by Neil Hannon, who rose to fame during the Brit Pop era, with their ironic stance on pop music. They’ve headlined The Royal Albert Hall & been featured on the soundtracks for  Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, The IT Crowd, Tomorrows World & Dr Who. Divine Comedy have racked up 12 top 40 hit singles in a career that has now spanned 3 decades, including; ‘Something For The Weekend’, ‘National Express” & ‘Everybody Knows’  along with 7 albums in the top 40, 3 of which were in the UK top 10 with ‘Office Politics’ their highest album chart entry to date in 2019 at number 5. .  See some classic The Divine Comedy Here 

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!
