This festival has been cancelled. Organiser's statement.
The 56th Cambridge Folk Festival will be taking place from Thursday 30th July until Sunday 2nd August 2020, 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.
Acts include Martha Wainwright, Passenger, Yusuf / Cat Stevens, Lankum, Seasick Steve, Show Of Hands, Suzanne Vega, Fatoumata Diawara, This Is The Kit, Patty Griffin, Seth Lakeman, The Young'uns, Julie Fowlis, Flook, Le Vent du Nord, and more. There's more to be announced.
