A dedicated intimate 3 day music festival with all the trimmings of a large festival without the hassel and all for CHARITY!
\\ ANNOUNCEMENT // - RAZORLIGHT // VANT // BLACKWATERS // THE WHOLLS // 485C just confirmed! so so many more bands and DJ's coming your way [you may want to get your tickets early though limited cap.!]
Being independent, run by volunteers, family owned and set in the gorgeous Hertfordshire Countryside just 30mins from London, Wilkestock really does tick all the right boxes. Expect a quirky, not for profit intimate festival packing a huge punch with top emerging UK talent gracing all 5 stages as well as the headliners. The 3 day festival has the deepest of roots spanning a long 10years, oodles of charm and a meaningful story of why all profits made get donated directly to charity.
Organiser Tom says “We love to support up and coming artists and seen some greats acts such as Bastille, Lonely The Brave, Tom Grennan, The Hunna, Prok & Fitch, Eliza and The Bear pass through the fields of Wilkestock”. More stablished acts Mystery Jets, Ms Dynamite, The Subways, Dub Pistols, Nizlopi, Goldie Lookin Chain, DJ Hype, Ed Solo, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Caspa, Stanton Warriors see Wilkestock’s inbox’s inundated with applications to perform. “We keep adding stages and look to accommodate more each year”. We welcome back BBC introducing for 2017’s festival packed to the rafters with intimate atmosphere and talent. Although it’s a charity festival there is no skimping here, top notch sound, lighting and led screens throughout. Often compared to as a small version of Secret Garden Party, natural amphitheater, solid atmosphere and intimate dance venues. Playing host to a huge range of DJ’s and Live acts well into the night this really is a ‘under the radar’ gem of a festival.
For a smaller scale but thoroughly organised established festival, this is one to try out. Early Birds starting at only £45.00 for a weekend camp ticket which have already sold out in record time, see the next tier of weekend tickets released at £65. Trying out this gem of a festival is exactly what everyone should do. This festival keeps turning up the heat year on year whilst keeping all profits donated direct to Charity and keeping the grass roots ‘no sponsorship’ feel something not easily done in the festival industry, hats off.
