Cambridge Folk Festival
This event has been and gone.
Renowned for its eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk, the Cambridge Folk Festival is one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world.
The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland are set to rub shoulders with more contemporary acts, the finest American country, blues and roots artists, acclaimed singer songwriters and even the odd pop star. Bluegrass, gospel, cajun, zydeco, jazz, world, klezmer and a ceilidh are also regular features.
As well as the music, Cambridge Folk Festival offers site facilities that are amongst the best to be found. Clean toilets, marquees to keep the audience covered in the event of rain, extensive provision for disabled people, award winning stage production, food from around the world, the Folknet Cafe with free internet access, craft, music and instrument stalls, friendly staff, campsite entertainment, a dedicated youth area called The Hub, a creche, a children's concert and a variety of workshops are all part of the picture.
