Jake Bugg to headline Cambridge Folk Festival 2017

Festivals Oysterband, Lau and Hayseed Dixie will also perform

Cambridge Folk Festival has revealed the first artists for next year’s bill. The announcement includes Jake Bugg, who the Festival have invited to return to headline Sunday night with an acoustic set.

Jake’s progress from performing in 2012 at the Festival’s smallest stage, The Den, to headlining Stage 1 is a feat matched only by one other artist, Passenger.

Also confirmed are: folk and roots pioneers Oysterband (Sunday), celebrating their 40th anniversary; multi-award winning, visionary folk trio Lau (Saturday), featuring Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O’Rourke and US ‘rockgrass’ favourites Hayseed Dixie (Sunday).

They join previously announced Guest Curator Jon Boden, who will perform over the Festival weekend with The Remnant Kings to preview his autumn 2017 album as well as guest curating elements of the line-up.

Tickets are now on sale:
Full Festival ticket: £167
Day tickets: £27.50 (Thu), £59.50 (Fri), £70 (Sat), £70 (Sun)
