Wilkestock Music Festival returns at the end of August 2018 for 3 full days of live music across 5 stages.
Located between Hertford and Stevenage, just a short drive from London, Wilkestock is a family-friendly festival which attracts some huge acts despite its relatively small capacity.
This means you can enjoy all the music up close, as an eclectic variety of live acts and DJs perform across 5 unique stages.
Last year’s event saw The Libertines’ Carl Barât perform on the Friday night with his latest band, The Jackals, before Razorlight took over headlining duty on the Saturday night.
There were also live performances from the likes of The Sherlocks, October Drift and VANT, plus DJ sets from Dub Pistols, Artful Dodger, Krafty Kuts and 2 Bad Mice, amongst many others.
Main Stage – Lounge on one of the many recycled sofas with a fresh beer in hand, or head down the front and dance your socks off! The natural amphitheatre allows prime viewing from any spot bringing energy and passion like you were onstage yourself, yes you can get that close!
Bellas Stage – Chill on the bean bags and listen to an array of music, previously hosted by Pixie Lott and BBC’s Introducing very own Gareth Lloyd. Get in here early to get a good spot!
