The campsites (charge per tent, not per person) also provide their own friendly entertainment. There is also on-site entertainment for kids.

Getting there

The Co-operative Cambridge Folk Festival encourages festival goers to think about the environment with the 'Reward my Ride' campaign. The campaign will encourage everyone to get to the festival in the greenest way possible, whether by public transport, lift sharing or roller skates!

Since one of the highest pollutants at any festival is the barrage of vehicles that bring punters to the site, festival attendees are being encouraged to bike, bus, train, walk, sail, punt or space hop to the event, and send the photos to Once registered, the best will win a bike so they can carry on keeping their pollution down.

There'll be more information here when available.
