Wychwood Festival has announced its first acts for 2023, with Travis set to headline the Saturday night.

The Proclaimers and Heather Small have also been confirmed for next year’s festival, which will take place between Friday 2nd and Sunday 4th June in Cheltenham.

The Gloucestershire festival launched in 2005 and has offered an eclectic mix of music and creative programming since. Continuing to grow in popularity, the festival builds will be moving to a bigger site in 2023, at Cheltenham Racecourse.

Travis will arrive at the festival with an array of hits at their disposal, including the likes of Sing and Why Does It Always Rain on Me?. The BRIT-winning band formed at Glasgow School of Art in the 1990s and came to prominence in the UK with their massive number one albums, The Man Who and The Invisible Band.

Meanwhile, speaking about appearing at next year’s festival, M People icon Heather Small said: “I can’t wait to perform at Wychwood Festival for the first time next year. Festival crowds are always the most fun. We’re going to have a party Cheltenham, so see you there!”

Iain Game, Festival Director of Wychwood Festival, said in a statement: “We are over the moon to be kickstarting our Wychwood 2023 announcements with three truly incredible artists, Travis, The Proclaimers and Heather Small. 

“It was a delight to see so many families come together for Wychwood 2022 after three long years away and we’re now heading into 2023 knowing this will be our biggest year yet. We can’t wait to welcome you all to the new site at the Racecourse next year.”

More acts are set to be announced in the new year, but if the amazing first three acts are already enough for you to want to buy tickets right now, then you can do so at wychwoodfestival.com.
