We’re already getting excited about the Big Weekend, which takes place from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 July on Parker’s Piece – especially now we’ve got wind of the line-up!
Kicking off with a dazzling fireworks display on the Friday night, this year’s musical line-up includes legendary 1970s disco group Boney M, makers of hits including Daddy Cool, Sunny, Rivers of Babylon and Brown Girl in the Ring.
Performing will be Maizie Williams, part of the original Boney M line-up, joined by three dynamic singers who’ll be revitalising the songs of the well-loved band and getting the crowds grooving.
They’ll be joined by The Selecter, one of the most successful ska bands of the 2-tone era, who enjoyed numerous top 40 singles in the UK Charts.
Also on the line-up are Desmond Dekker’s old backing band The Aces, who have relaunched their group, along with a great backing band, to celebrate the music of the reggae icon.
There will also be the chance to catch local talent including Fred’s House, The Treatment and The Dowsing Sound Collective.
As ever, there will also be games, science and sports workshops, food stalls and more, as well as the popular Cambridge Mela. Stay tuned to the next issue of Cambridge Edition for all the details.
