About Wilkswood Reggae Festival 2022

This year's festival (originally postponed from 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus Covid-19 epedemic) will see reggae legends rub shoulders with upcoming artists and DJs from the UK and abroad with over 60 acts performing across three stages. 

Headliners on the main stage this year include legendary producer Mad Professor (performing with Sista Aisha, Sista Audrey, Canita and the Ariwa Posse Band) and the evergreen Twinkle Brothers along with a host of live acts to be confirmed.

The Jah Spirit Stage will this year feature an exclusive takeover on each day of the festival from three of the UK's top sound systems, Channel One, Mungo's HiFi and Sinai Sound, who will all be appearing for the whole day with their own custom-built speaker rigs. It's exceptional to get to experience these genuine sound systems outside of the carnival environment, so this is a real coup.

Elsewhere a multitude of soundsystems, deejays and producers will perform on the Jah Spirit Stage, an eclectic collection of acoustic and spoken word acts will appear on the DJ Derek Stage and a posse of hot young DJs and selectors will be showcasing the best in drum & bass, dubstep and ragga in the late night Shhhbeen.

The Wilkswood Roots Reggae Festival is now in its fifth year and previous headliners on the main stage have included Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Mad Professor, General Levy, Brinsley Forde, Tippa Irie, Mikey General, Joe Ariwa, Earl Sixteen, Carroll Thompson, Janet Kay and Festus Coxsone.

Both the Main Stage and the Jah Spirit Soundsystem Stage are under cover so the music carries on whatever the weather. Elsewhere there's a chillout zone, street food stalls (including a Jamaican jerk barbecue, wood-fired pizza and vegetarian/vegan food), the main bar serving draught beer and ice cold lager and the Rumshak's infamous rum cocktails; we're still trying to work out what the 'magic ingredient' is but they taste great and get you dancing!

The Wilkswood Roots Reggae Festival is a family-friendly festival and there is plenty to keep your little ragamuffins entertained including a dedicated kid's field and a wooded clearing featuring storytelling and music. To encourage the whole family to come along, we offer reduced prices for children up to the age of 17 and under-3s are free!

The festival takes place over three days at Wilkswood Farm in Langton Matravers and the ticket price includes full admission and camping for three nights. There is a glamping field with pre-pitched tents and campervans and caravans are welcome (for an additional fee).

Music genres: Ska, Reggae, Dub
