Cambridge Folk Festival Sells Out for 23rd Time
Cambridge Live, organisers of the Cambridge Folk Festival, have confirmed that the 2016 event has now completely sold out, continuing a 23-year tradition.
Now in its 52nd year, the Cambridge Folk Festival remains one of the most enduring and popular folk festivals in the world, bringing an eclectic mix of outstanding artists from around the world to Cambridge. Each year over 14,000 people attend the Festival at its beautiful location in the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall. Tickets for the event went on sale in December 2015 with the first names announced in February 2016.
Non-ticket holders still wishing to get a flavour of the event can listen to BBC Radio 2, who will be broadcasting a Festival round up on The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe between 7–8pm on Wednesday 3 August. In addition, Mark Radcliffe and Julie Fowlis will be presenting highlights for Sky Arts for future broadcast on the channel.
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”.
