More about the festival:
Cambridge Rock Festival is run by volunteer music fans for music fans, with a great friendly, non-corporate vibe! 2020 was scheduled to showcase around 68 acts appearing over four days on three stages at our new site in Cambridgeshire at the East of England Showground, Peterborough, just off the A1.
“The new site will have great benefits for the fans, including tiered seating, hard standing for cars, permanent buildings, better transport links and cheaper accommodation for those not wishing to camp. It will also make life easier for us and we hope secure the CRF for the future!”
The festival will continue to feature an outside seating area. On-site camping with parking by your tent and free car parking will all continue.
The annual music festival has seen nationally and internationally well-known acts perform on its various stages but has also taken the opportunity to promote new and local bands too – the total is over a thousand. The event has been short-listed for best medium sized UK festival.
The aim has always been to provide great entertainment, particularly in the classic rock and blues and prog genres, and avoid the corporate nature of many larger festivals as far as possible. All the proceeds from ticket and drink sales go to help fund the event rather than pay the organisers. Despite being run and stewarded by enthusiastic volunteers, who make it perhaps the friendliest festival you will find, many festival go-ers and indeed many bands have said it is one of the best run festivals they’ve ever been to.
