42nd Cambridge Folk Festival

News


We will be updating the news page as and when new information comes in. It will feature updates about the artists playing, any announcements or events around the festival.

We got this from Rachel Churcher, which seems to add a lighter note to the size of the queue this year.
Having spent eight hours in the queue for tickets on April 30th, I wanted to record this experience and meet up with other dedicated queuers at the festival. Then it occurred to me that you all might want something to commemorate your dedication, so here are my designs.
I am not trying to make a profit (apart from attempting to cover the cost of the designers' shirts), so rest assured that these prices are as low as we could get them. The artwork comes from a friend who is an illustrator (and who also spent the day in the queue!), and I have been designing T-shirts for many years. We hope you like them!
There are two designs - one on black, the other on white - so take your pick, and we'll see you in July. 8 Hour Queue
