The Cambridge Rock Festival, which takes place over the weekend of 4th to the 7th of August, have announced the first few bands for 2016.
Bands confirmed so far include Cregan & Co, The Mentulls, “who play the blues with a progressive twist, inspired by Camel and Focus”, Doris Brendell and Malaya Blue on Friday. Saturday’s bill will include Carl Palmer, Hazel O’Connor, Hekz, the legendary Pink Faries, and local band Derecho. Sunday sees Focus, Curved Air, Purson and Anglo-Argentine band Yossarian.
There are quite a few more bands still to be announced, and hopefully we’ll see a few of the “regulars” added. It’s an interesting-looking bill so far, with what looks like a greater emphasis on both blues and progressive rock. There are a few regulars who have played CRF several times in the past, but there are also plenty of new names, including one or two who are long overdue.
Tickets are available now from the Cambridge Rock Festival website.
