Description

Cambridge Folk Festival is one of the premier music events in Europe and one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world. It has become hugely popular and a regular sell out attracting ten thousand people, many of whom return year after year. The Festival is renowned for its eclectic mix of music and a wide definition of what might be considered folk. The best traditional folk artists from the UK and Ireland 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 ceilidh are also regular features. The line up has reflected the many changes in the music scene from the 60s to the present and is always a hotbed mix of the old and the new. Throughout its history the Festival has applied the simple ideal of providing the best for artists and audience alike, and its site facilities 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.
