Cambridge Folk Festival 2018 tickets on sale Friday

Back for 2018, tickets for the UK’s most famous folk festival go on general sale Friday 1 December at 10am available from here and they’ve announced a historic twinning with the legendary Newport Folk Festival for the first time “that will allow both festivals to share ideas, experiences and indeed artists between these two festivals that have grown up together since the 1960s.” Hailing from North Carolina, this year’s guest curator is Grammy Award-winning songwriter and founding member of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens. Fresh from her recent UK tour, Rhiannon said: “I am honoured to be the next guest curator for Cambridge Folk Festival following on from the amazing Jon Boden who has done a wonderful job this year. Having played the Festival before I know how special Cambridge is and I am really excited to be contributing to the line-up next year as well as performing.”

The first acts are yet to be announced but while you wait, here’s previous headliner Laura Marling in a room that looks like it could do with a once over.
