Wychwood Festival aims to build on the success of its first three years, and returns on Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June for 2008.

The very family-friendly Wychwood aims to be intimate and inclusive for audience and musician alike, blending world, roots and contemporary music, and encouraging new collaborations, with an ethical bent to its theme, fundraising for Oxfam. There's also comedy, workshops, and more.

Headliners on Friday night is The Proclaimers, Saturday is The Divine Comedy, and Sunday is Simon Emmerson’s folk collaboration The Imagined Village. Other confirmations are Dreadzone, Robyn Hitchcock and Friends, Spiers and Boden, Kissmet, Duffy, Emma Pollock, Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, Kate Rusby, The Blockheads, Miles Hunt & Erica Nockalls, 3 Daft Monkeys, Misty’s Big Adventure, Palladium, Piney Gir & The Country Roadshow, and Oxford band The Epstein. For the line-up details as available please click here.

With eFestivals again as sponsor, there's expanded comedy in 2008 curated by Comedy Store Player Andy Smart, with performances from Sean Lock, Dave Johns and Stephen Frost, Steve Steen, in a special 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' show on Saturday and Sunday and stand up from Perrier Award Nominee Jeff Green, Mundo Jazz and there's more comedy still to be announced.

Tickets are on sale, priced at £100 for an adult weekend ticket and £75 for a concession weekend ticket (there is also a new 2 for 1 Disabled ticket rate). Campervans are an extra £25. Children aged 11 and under and camping remain free, but need a ticket. To buy, click here or telephone the festival office on 01993 772580.

The festival will be reverting to the same camping set up as 2006, whereby you will be able to drive up to your camping pitch, and unload your camping gear right by where you are setting up. Then emptied cars must be driven off the campsite and to the car park. After the festival, you'll be able to drive back to your pitch to load up. Also returning in 2008 will be the silent disco, back by popular demand.

eFestivals is proud to sponsor the comedy at Wychwood Music Festival, as part of our commitment to support festivals - see here for more information.

This year Wychwood has launched a podcast and you can download interviews from Simon Emmerson of The Imagined Village and the comedy curator Andy Smart, as well as a taste of some of the music you will be hearing across the weekend you can subscribe to it on itunes (here). Wychwood 2007
