The full line-up for Cambridge Folk Festival has been announced, taking place from Thursday 28th July until Sunday 31st July 2022, at Cherry Hinton Hall Grounds, in Cambridge.
True to its roots, this festival continues its tradition of hosting the biggest international stars in folk and roots music whilst also providing a platform for up and coming new artists and nurturing promising young talent,
Returning in 2022 after a 2 year hiatus, headliners for Stages 1 and 2 include: Gipsy Kings featuring Nicolas Reyes, Passenger, Seasick Steve, Suzanne Vega, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Billy Bragg, and Clannad in the newly established Folk Legends slot. An exciting mix of much-anticipated artists completes the main stages bill.
Catch tomorrow’s stars today in The Den. This is a smaller stage specially established to support musicians at the beginning of their careers. Well-known for spotting future hitmakers – Jake Bugg and Passenger first played The Den before headlining Stage 1 – the Cambridge Folk Festival has assembled an impressive list of names sure to become new favourites. Sign-up slots will be available each day too.
As a long-running staple of the Festival, The Club Tent not only hosts performances from local folk clubs throughout the weekend but also offers the chance to see newer artists in an intimate setting. 2022’s eclectic programme guarantees some must-see moments and includes the Cambridge Folk Festival ’22 Tastemaker Showcase Series.
There’s also a fantastic array of extra activities around the Festival site which make Cambridge such a unique weekend, which for 2022 include: The Folk Ballet, The Hub Band Project, Folk Idol, The Festival Session, The Songlines Interview, Storytelling, Workshops, Well-being and much more.
