Diana Ross, Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Jacksons, Level 42, and Gabrielle are just some of the names that will take the stage at Childerley Orchard, near Cambridge. The family-friendly festival, supported by the Cambridge Independent, runs from today (Friday, June 10) until Sunday (June 12). After a strong inaugural weekend in 2021, expectations are high for 2022.

An exclusive programme is available in this week’s Cambridge Independent, featuring set times, a site map, highlights and an exclusive interview with Mica Paris - you can buy a copy at the festival from the merchandising stand.

And it is not just the headline acts to get excited about.

After the headline acts have left the stage and the night beckons, campers/glampers can join top DJs at the Party-Time Continuum stage, an after dark area for weekend campers, nestled in the apple orchard.

Expect to hear the likes of UK house pioneer DJ Fat Tony and Little Gay Brother. Also set to keep the party going is production powerhouse Waze, one half of house super-duo Waze & Odyssey, as well as Crazy P and the multi-talented presenter, singer, dancer, and now DJ Denise Van Outen, who will also jump on the decks for a dose of disco magic.

Along with the impressive catalogue of music on offer, the festival serves up a three-day feast of arts, culture, and wellness activities. Revellers can start their morning by practising peaceful mindfulness and yoga and can spend the afternoon enjoying comedy and podcasts at the Auditorium of Intrigue, situated in the orchard.
