Lineup 2018

There are over forty live acts, soundsystems, deejays, selectors, acoustic performers, poets and orators performing across three stages at Wilkswood Reggae 2018. The main stage and the Jah Spirit Stage are both undercover (adjacent to the main bar) so the entertainment will keep on whatever the weather. We also have The Shebeen which doubles up at as a chill-out zone during the day and a late night soirée when the live music has finished.  

THE MAIN STAGE

The Main Stage presents some of the hottest live reggae and ska acts from around the globe. Legends and pioneers hotstep it with young flag bearers and modern mavericks to bring a fabulous fusion of roots, lovers, dancehall, ska and dub performers. The main stage is permanently undercover so the party can go on whatever the weather and well into the night.  

Acts are being added daily so watch this space for the latest confirmations. Keep up-to date by following us on Facebook.

JAH SPIRIT STAGE

The Jah Spirit Stage brings together some of the UK’s most vibrant soundsystems, inventive producers, eclectic selectors, engaging deejays and melodious MCs and will provide a throbbing backbeat to the weekend’s events. Imagine Notting Hill Carnival has been picked up and dropped into the middle of the Dorset countryside and you’ll get the picture.

The stage is named in honour of the beloved MC, vegan chef, ‘face of the festival’ and all round wonderous legend, Jah Spirit, who sadly passed away in February 2018 but whose fire we keep burning.

DJ DEREK STAGE

Named in honour of the legendary Bristol DJ, the DJ Derek Stage brings together a homegrown stable of deejays, selectors, acoustic acts, comedians and poets in one melting pot of cross-cultural creativity. Full scheduling will be available nearer the date and during the event.

The Shebeen

The Shebeen is a special covered area situated within the Wilkswood Reggae complex. During the day it acts as the Chill Out Zone, a quiet, relaxing place out of the sun for adults and children to go to escape the throng, listening to some ambient beats away from the hustle and bustle.

At night the Shebeen turns into a late night joint with live DJs and a small bar. Because the Shebeen is inside the main farm buildings, the music can carry on after the live music has finished without causing disturbance to younger campers and local residents. There are are some special appearances planned with the Box Fulla Records label already confirmed for a take-over on Sunday night. 

Full details will be posted nearer the event and during the festival weekend.
