Held at beautiful Cherry Hinton Hall, the Cambridge Folk Festival has fast become one of the most prestigious celebrations of folk music in the world. Tickets for next year’s event will go on sale on Tuesday 1 December at 10am.
It will run from Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 July 2016. The line-up is due to be announced by Cambridge Live in the spring of next year.
As part of its aim to develop young audiences, this year Cambridge Live has introduced new reduced ticket prices to the festival for 16-17 and 18-21 year olds. Additionally, it has retained the 2015 price for 5-15 year olds.
The Chair of Cambridge Live, Sara Garnham, said, “with a commitment to developing new young talent [being] an important part of the Cambridge Folk Festival, it only seems right that we also encourage more young people to be the new generation of festival goers.” She went on to say that she was delighted with the introduction of the new ticket prices, alongside wide ranging options for attending the four day event.
Since it began in 1965, the festival has been renowned for its eclectic mix of musical styles. Acts range from country music to singer-songwriters, and have previously included Mumford & Sons, The Proclaimers, Paul Simon and KT Tustall. In addition to the music, there will be covered and open stages, real ale bars, a kids’ ceilidh and much more.
