Wychwood Festival has long been celebrated as a family-friendly event, but the 2024 edition has elevated its status to greatness. From the moment attendees arrived on-site, the festival's new layout and vibrant atmosphere set the stage for an unforgettable experience.

The proximity of the campsite to the arena eliminated the need for long treks back to the tents, while the expansive family area offered a plethora of activities for all ages, including teenagers. The Main Stage, now enclosed, not only enhanced sound quality but also fostered a fantastic atmosphere, with festival-goers invited to sit behind the sound desk, ensuring an optimal viewing experience. The second stage boasted larger crowds than ever before, and the addition of the new venue, Howlin' Pete's, provided yet another dimension of entertainment. Attendees were treated to a diverse selection of ales and ciders at the 'Stagger Inn', complemented by a variety of high-quality street food options. The festival's overall vibe exuded pure enjoyment, leaving everyone in high spirits.

Headlining the seventeenth edition of Cheltenham's beloved family music festival were Happy Mondays, Travis, and Sam Ryder, alongside an array of talented acts. Happy Mondays kicked off the festivities on Friday night with an electrifying performance, while Travis delivered a nostalgia-filled set on Saturday, prompting lead singer Fran Healy to reminisce about childhood memories at Cheltenham Racecourse. Sam Ryder, closing out the festival on Sunday, made his UK festival headline debut, treating the audience to a sensational show infused with Eurovision spirit.

Scouting For Girls, Ash, The Proclaimers, Melanie C, and Heather Small were among the other standout performers, captivating audiences with their chart-topping hits and infectious energy. The festival also showcased up-and-coming artists, providing a platform for emerging talent to shine.

Wychwood Festival 2024 introduced new activities and workshops, including Barrioke with Shaun Williamson and Junior Jungle, further enhancing the festival experience for attendees of all ages. With over 100 workshops and activities available, ranging from magic shows to drumming workshops, there truly was something for everyone to enjoy.
