Jake Bugg to headline Cambridge Folk Festival
PUBLISHED: 15:08 19 December 2016
One of Britain’s most exciting talents, singer-songwriter Jake Bugg will headline Sunday night at Cambridge Folk Festival with an acoustic set.
Jake’s progress from performing in 2012 at the Festival’s smallest stage, The Den, to headlining Stage 1 is a feat matched only by one other artist, Passenger.
Also confirmed for next July’s festival are folk and roots pioneers Oysterband (Sunday), celebrating their 40th anniversary; multi-award winning folk trio Lau (Saturday), featuring Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O’Rourke and US ‘rock grass’ favourites Hayseed Dixie (Sunday).
They join previously announced guest curator Jon Boden, who will perform over the festival weekend with The Remnant Kings to preview his autumn 2017 album as well as guest curating elements of the line-up.
Cambridge Folk Festival is held over four days between July 27 and July 30 in the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall. Celebrated for its relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities and diverse programme, the festival brings together the best of folk from international stars to breakthrough new artists and special one-off performances, talks and workshops across several stages.
Full festival ticket: £167. Day tickets: £27.50 (Thu), £59.50 (Fri), £70 (Sat), £70 (Sun)
