2016 Cambridge Folk Festival Sells Out 23 Years Running | Music News

Cambridge Folk Festival 19.07.2016ANDREW


Cambridge Live, organisers of the Cambridge Folk Festival, have confirmed that this year’s event has now completely sold out, having actually done so for 23 years running, now.


The festival, in its fifty-second year, remains one of the most enduring and popular folk festivals in the world, spanning many musical cultures in just the one event. It is said over 14,000 people attend it, and it takes place on the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall. Tickets for the event went on sale in December 2015 with the first acts announced in February 2016.


It has been advised that no people without tickets try to descend upon the event, as no tickets will be sold at the gates. Listeners of BBC Radio 2, however, will hear a round up of it on The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe between 19:00-20:00 on Wednesday, August 3. Mark Radcliffe and Julie Fowlis will be presenting highlights for Sky Arts, too.


Neil Jones, Operations Director for Cambridge Live, said, “We’re pleased to announce that once again the Cambridge Folk Festival is a total sell out. In an ever competitive market place is fantastic to have such support from our loyal audiences who we look forward to welcoming to this year’s event”.
