With ten chart-topping studio albums and over 40 million records sold worldwide, Texas is set to deliver an unforgettable performance. Joining them on Sunday, June 2nd, are the enduring indie favorites Ocean Colour Scene, renowned for their electrifying Britpop anthems and timeless hits like 'The River Boat Song'.

But that's not all - Sunday's lineup boasts the return of the legendary Seasick Steve, whose raw blues sound and innovative instrumentation are sure to captivate audiences. And let's not forget Lightning Seeds, celebrating 35 years of musical excellence with over 8 million records sold.

For fans of the Fab Four, The Bootleg Beatles will transport festival-goers back to the swinging sixties with their pitch-perfect tribute to the iconic band. Meanwhile, on 'The Garden' stage, discover the hottest new talent from across the country, including the post-punk sounds of Deadletter, the indie charm of Pip Blom, and the psychedelic rock vibes of CVC and Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard.

Local favorites Stornoway and the legendary Peter Hook & The Light are set to headline 'The Garden', promising nights filled with unforgettable performances. And let's not forget Dexy's, led by the charismatic Kevin Rowland, closing out the weekend in style with their infectious blend of pop and soul.

But Wychwood isn't just about the music - it's a celebration of comedy, with an incredible lineup featuring some of the brightest talents in stand-up, including Marcus Brigstocke and Chris Brooker.
