Cambridge Folk Festival have announced the full lineup and day splits ahead of next week’s event. Headliners include Gipsy Kings, Passenger, Seasick Steve, Show of Hands, and Suzanne Vega. Americana newcomers Elles Bailey, Ferris and Sylvester, and Lady Nade are playing across the weekend. Established in 1965, the festival returns for the first time since 2019 with its two main stages, the smaller Club Tent, which hosts intimate shows, and the fringe stage, The Den. The family-friendly festival also will host various additional activities, including The Folk Ballet, The Hub Band Project, Folk Idol, The Festival Session, The Songlines Interview, storytelling, workshops, and a wellbeing area. One welcome innovation is the provision of free wifi across the site from Novahub enabling punters to find their friends, access information, and share experiences across social media. Beer will be provided by Otter Brewery, based in East Devon.
Full festival tickets are £187, while Thursday tickets are £31, Friday £78.28, Saturday £78.28, and Sunday are £78.28. They can be purchased from the event website.
