Reunited UB40 to headline Wychwood Festival 2015



UB40 are to headline the Saturday at next year’s Wychwood Festival with reunited founding band members Ali Cambell, Astro and Mickey Virtue.

The reggae legends who perform at the festival for the first time will be joined by The Proclaimers, Ghostpoet, Dreadzone, Electric Swing Circus, Rusty Shackle and Fickle Friends. This is the first wave of acts to be announced with many more expected in the New Year.

Graeme Merifield, Festival Director comments, “We are hugely excited to welcome UB40 with the exceptionally talented Ali Cambell, Astro and Mickey Virtue back together for what I have no doubt will be an incredible Saturday headline performance on our Wychwood mainstage. The tenth birthday celebrations this year was an absolute delight and with this firmly in our mind, Wychwood 2015 is set for even bigger and better things and we cannot wait to share the three wonderful days with you all.”
