Julia Wright is going to Cropredy Music Festival near Banbury, Oxfordshire from 11-13 August, 2016. Details can be found at http://www.fairportconvention.com/ (click on the sign to the Festival).
This is an annual, well-attended festival of folk and rock music held on the edge of the village of Cropredy, and run by Fairport Convention.
This year's 36th anniversary of the festival will take place from Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th August 2016.
Hosts Fairport Convention will make two appearances opening the festival and closing the show as is traditional, Madness top the bill on the opening night, and Bootleg Beatles headline the Friday night. The other acts completing the line-up are The Demon Barbers, Gryphon, Ralph McTell, Sound of the Sirens, Steeleye Span, Hayseed Dixie, Babylon Circus, CoCo and the Butterfields, Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts, Maia, Headspace, Lifesigns, Wille and The Bandits, regular Richard Digance, and Dave Pegg & Anthony John Clarke, with Anthony also compering on all three days.
The music starts at 4pm on Thursday. Cropredy will also present a set by the winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award on Friday.
There are no allocated camping areas for groups but it should be possible to meet up before going on the site. Or I’ll see you there.
