Wilkswood Reggae 2021 still planning on going ahead

Wilkswood Reggae 2021 Still On!

You favourite small festival in the woods by the sea is one of the last few summer events still standing.

Tickets are selling like iced rum on a hot day so grab yours soon before they’re all gone.

As larger music festivals across the UK are one-by-one cancelling for 2021, the good news is that Wilkswood Reggae Festival 2021 is still currently planning to go ahead.

Last week Shambala Festival was forced to postpone due to coronavirus concerns, following the previous cancellations of Boomtown, Blue Dot, Download and, of course, Glastonbury. It is estimated that as many as nine in ten music festivals will be forced to postpone or reschedule, most citing the lack of a government-backed insurance scheme to cover them for last minute reimposition of coronavirus regulations.

These larger festivals have capacities in the tens of thousands and trying to hold them with coronavirus restrictions in place would be impossible. However, Wilkswood Reggae has a relatively much smaller attendance due to the restrictions imposed by the topography of the main arena (in a secluded wooded valley on a working farm). With ample camping space and smaller crowds, as well as reduced overheads, the organisers feel that they can defer any possible forced postponement until much closer to the event.


All ticket holders should be reassured that all bookings will be honoured in the event of further postponements. If the festival is forced to postpone, your ticket will automatically be valid for the rescheduled event.

The organisers at all times have the safety of its ticket holders, staff, artists and traders as a priority and decisions about the festival will be led by both the prevailing advice and restrictions as well as common sense.


The camping site itself has plenty of space so you never feel on top of each other like at other festivals; it’s easy to make room for yourself. There are plenty of toilets, water points and even hot showers. All in all it’s a great little festival (even if we say so ourselves) and it’s little wonder that we get people returning every year. Tickets are quite understandably selling fast so to ensure you’re not waiting in vain, be sure to book as soon as you can.

Adult Weekend Tickets are £120, Youth Tickets are currently £50 (set to rise £60) and under-3s go free. Ticket price includes three days of festivities, three night’s camping and car parking. We have a designated campervan field for the weekend price of £25 per van.
