The Jacksons to headline Cambridge Club Festival
The Cambridge Club Festival has announced a raft of new superstar names to add to its already stellar line up - including The Jacksons and Mica Paris.
They will join globally-renowned musicians including Diana Ross, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Level 42, Gabrielle and Corinne Bailey Rae – who will bring joy and disco fever to the beautiful Childerley Orchard, set in the idyllic Cambridge countryside.
Upcoming singer and vocal powerhouse Cassa Jackson – who supported The Jacksons on their 50th anniversary tour – joins too, along with the three brothers of Rayowa, who will impress with their crystal-clear falsetto, chiming guitars and effortless charisma.
The Festival’s MD William Young said: “We are honoured to announce the addition of such incredibly talented, globally-renowned names to The Cambridge Club line-up. These are acts we have always dreamt of welcoming to the Festival. They really embody the feel-good, dance-focussed philosophy at its heart – and, of course, play amazing music which spans the generations, offering something for all ages. We cannot wait for June to come around!”
Joining Crazy P at the Party-Time Continuum stage – an After Dark area for weekend campers, nestled in the apple orchard – is Waze, formerly of house super-duo Waze & Odyssey and now succeeding as a solo artist and production powerhouse. Expect the perfect soundtrack for dancing under the twinkling orchard lights – with a standout set blending house and disco influences. The multi-talented singer, dancer, and now DJ Denise Van Outen also jumps on the decks for a dose of disco magic, and festival Co-Founder Chris Jammer makes use of his eclectic disco / house repertoire to finish off the bill in style.
Along with the unbeatable 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 spend the afternoon enjoying the incredible selection of comedy and podcasts at the Auditorium of Intrigue – situated in the orchard – with fascinating talks and comedy performances.
Special guests added include Marcus Brigstocke – British comedian best known for his acclaimed, satirical BBC Radio 4 programme The Now Show – along with comedy act Angelos Epithemiou (played by Dan Skinner), who regularly features on the Brian and Roger Podcast and TV shows such as Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. They’re accompanied by a variety of top comedians including Emmanuel Sonubi, Olivia Lee, Michelle Shaughnessy, Rob Rouse and Howard Read.
The Cambridge Club caters for all ages, with the Imagination Station hosting the Magic Star Live Stage, with comedy double act Dick & Dom joining the fun – best known for their CBBC hit show Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow – along with Andy & The Odd Socks, YolanDa’s Band Jam, Maddie Moate, Oscar Dance Crew, Wonderpop & Diddi Dance to bring the laughter too. To keep the kids thoroughly entertained, Toodle & Nibs host the Camp Cambridge children’s area – with adventures and games for little ones to make flags, craft catapults, build dens, learn knots, sing songs, tell stories and toast marshmallows.
A wide variety of delicious food and drink is available, with cuisines from all over the world – from wood-fired pizza and hoisin duck wraps, to freshly made crêpes and warm chocolate chip cookies – as well as bookable sit-down dining experiences too.
With such musical legends added to the line-up – plus an unbeatable array of cultural experiences for all ages, a family-friendly vibe, and a truly idyllic setting – The Cambridge Club 2022 is set to be one of the events of the summer.
