Cambridge Rock Festival, 2019

A Bit About The Festival

The 15th annual Cambridge Rock Festival returned to it's previous home at Haggis Farm, Barton, just outside Cambridge city. It featured two equal main stages with bands spread across them and organisers made every effort to schedule them to minimise overlaps, letting fans see as much as possible of each band that they like. A third, small acoustic stage was also added and this also featured two late-night astronomy lectures!

The C.R.F. started as the Rockinbeerfest before changing its name to emphasise the musical side but it still features numerous real ales and local ciders and in 2018 added a gin & Prosecco bar. This year offered a fantastic line-up of nearly 70 classic rock, progressive rock, blues and acoustic acts, spread over the three stages on four days. Perhaps most importantly of all the CRF, which is run by volunteers (including some of the PA, staging and lighting providers!), provides the friendliest atmosphere you could hope for and indeed they made great efforts to help festival-goers get cars out of the mud following a torrential downpour - though fans themselves stayed dry inside the marquees that housed every stage!

Photos of a majority of the bands are included here - the inevitable clashes, other duties (and wanting to watch some of them!) made photographing them all impossible!
