Cambridge Folk Festival

Cambridge Folk Festival is one of the premier music events in Europe and one of the world's longest-running and most famous folk festivals. 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 broad 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 a ceilidh are also regular features. The lineup 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.
