Wychwood aims to be intimate and inclusive for audience and musician alike, blending world, roots, folk and contemporary music, and encouraging new collaborations, with an ethical bent to its theme, fundraising for Oxfam, Greenpeace, Amnesty International and Friends Of The Earth.

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 include Dreadzone, Robyn Hitchcock and Friends, Spiers and Boden, Kissmet, Duffy, Emma Pollock, Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, Kate Rusby, and The Blockheads. For the line-up details as available please click here.

The festival features over sixty bands, artists and DJs over many stages, and boasts a wide ranging and full programme of arts and crafts and workshops. There are over eighty workshops for all ages, which are given more room than any other festival in proportion to the size of the event. With music workshops, dancing, expressive arts, a solar-powered cinema, live comedy, healing fields, global food, lovely ales and lovely campsite on the racecourse itself with views of the Prestbury Hills.

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.
