The 55th Cambridge Folk Festival will be taking place from Thursday 1st until Sunday 4th August 2019, at Cherry Hinton Hall Grounds, in Cambridge.
The festival's prestigious reputation for quality music in intimate surroundings means tickets always sell out very quickly. The music is much more than traditional folk, and there's also mindfulness workshops and talks, children's concerts, ceilidhs, facepainting, storytelling, playgrounds, paddling pool, street theatre and even a wandering magician.
Confirmed acts include Lucinda Williams, José González, Nick Mulvey, Richard Thompson, Ralph McTell, Tunng, Fisherman's Friends, Lil' Jimmy Reed & the A Team, Talisk, Nancy Kerr, James Fagan & Friends, Sam Sweeney, Jarrod Dickenson, Karine Polwart, Calexico and Iron & Wine, Amadou & Mariam and Blind Boys of Alabama, Graham Nash, The Unthanks, Gruff Rhys, Holy Moly & the Crackers, and many more.
