Cornbury Festival Finale Line Up announcement!

Festival Crowd Header

A fantastic all-star line-up of artists will gather at Great Tew Park this July for Cornbury Music Festival’s Fabulous Finale.

Joining Canadian superstar Bryan Adams for the Festival’s farewell weekend on 7-9 July, will be big band supremo and national treasure Jools Holland, Chrissie Hynde’s perennial Pretenders, and a host of Cornbury favourites including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Jack Savoretti and Scouting For Girls. Yorkshire rockers Kaiser Chiefs make their Cornbury debut headlining Friday night.  Recent No.1 country sisters Ward Thomas also make a welcome return, along with Keane frontman Tom Chaplin, festival darling Imelda May, and last year’s crowd pleasers, Australian troubadours The Pierce Brothers.

Heading up the newcomers, and boasting an awesome live reputation, US soulsters St Paul & The Broken Bones will join Paul Weller protégés, Stone Foundation, Mark Ronson-collaborator and indie darling Rose Elinor Dougall, and Danish new-disco superstars Black Dylan. Also joining the bill are Festival promoter Hugh Phillimore’s favourite 90’s popstars Right Said Fred and the man who created Band Aid Midge Ure.

Phillimore recently announced that this year's event, the 14th Cornbury, will be the last: ‘When you’re having a farewell party you want to be surrounded by people you really love, so we’ve invited artists we’ve known and enjoyed watching over the years and luckily they’ve all been keen to join us for our Fabulous Finale’.

Nicknamed ‘Poshstock’, England’s most upmarket festival, Cornbury, has featured many brilliant performers over the years – Joe Cocker, Amy Winehouse, Robert Plant, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Blondie, Bryan Ferry and Georgie Fame amongst them. The festival has gained a reputation for its unique and friendly atmosphere, beautiful Cotswold location and its loyal audience of multigenerational families, aristocracy, Prime Ministers, film stars, farmers, rockers, Jeremy Clarkson and even the odd royal! 

'We've had a fantastic run over the last 14 years and are very proud of the lovely event we've created' says Phillimore: ‘This year we will end on a high. I know that every artist on the line-up will deliver an exceptional live show. Live performance is my great love and for me its the essence of Cornbury’.
