📣 We've got some news to brighten your Tuesday!

Tickets 🎟️ camping ⛺ and everything else 👉bit.ly/CambridgeFolk2020 ...
Sarah Pink - Julie Fowlis is playing 😊- just love to hear her singing in Gaelic! Elephant Sessions also on the list - going to be a good festival!
Wow Patty Griffin 😊😊😊😊
Not so keen on that list but then again anything after 1985 is a bit suspect.
Used to have some really big names a few years ago - would love to see the return of people with long pedigree in Folk please 😄👍
There are some very familiar names of course, great quality acts. But it’s the new names to me that look and sound very exciting. And dozens more to be announced😊👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Just need @Skinny Lister @sambrace & my weekend will be complete.
Paul Loveday Seth Lakeman! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Mark Brown .. Seth Lakeman ❤❤
Hurray! Elephant Sessions!!
Patty Griffin..worth it just to see her ..🥰
Yay, The Elephant Sessions!!!
When are you going to announce TRADarrr the Finest Folk Rock band in the country?

Keep a weather eye 🌧️ on Cambridge because we've got some news coming next Tuesday and we think it's going to brighten the start of next week!! ⛅
But if you can't wait until Tuesday, why not tune into BBC Radio Cambridgeshire Monday night for The Folk Show and catch a little 🎙️ preview? ...
Ok, sneak preview for you all, we’ve been asked to do a one song set on Sunday...
Delph Steve, Danny and the xylophones...please 👍
Silly name for a band: Nine More Names
Well? The suspense is killing us! 😊 Rhonda Tasker
🤞 they’re going to announce that there will be more than one flushable accessible toilet!!!!!!!!!!!
Fingers crossed for CC Smugglers.x
Come on Eddie,Talisk or Imar, xx
Rob Dorling can't wait xxx
More names ?
My £182 ticket does give me access to all the acts doesnt it please?
Pet Shop Boys, acoustic set in The Den, Thursday please.
This is very very exciting! Although I guess the absolute top artists on the bill have already been announced, it’s often the acts slightly “lower” down who are the highlight of the Fest for me! And Eddie can do no wrong in my book☺️
Can’t wait x
Now, this is wishful thinking BUT!!! Given the weather related comment and the fact they are touring the uk June/July, and they’d be amazing.... Crowded House?.... Please!!!
Hopefully skinny lister
It would be great to see Bird in the Belly or Hickory Signals playing

For the last two years, we have been lucky to meet so many festival goers. So many have an emotional or romantic attachment to a the Cambridge Folk Festival , we absolutely love all their stories and always get moved by them. This is a very special festival! ❤️
No but we did see Passenger busk in the Guinness tent and then officially in The Den! About 3/4 years later he headlined the festival (was there again) and so cool to have Mike back this summer too (yes we’ll be there!) 😁
Oops My now husband says it differently Last people standing after Joan finished We sat on the very damp grass and he proposed
I saw him busk too and had a great chat afterwards. Looking forward to seeing him again. A lovely man
I saved my sister Liz Lucking from drowning when she thought she could walk on water like the ducks do! 🤣 I had to pull her up by her hair and she actually had a go at me for pulling her hair! 😆
We met our platonic lovers Kairsti DoidgeJeni Luke Daniel Ashtonand Simon Angell there of that counts....
Just Absolutely Love CFF ❤️ Along with my husband and two special friends. We will all be with you again this year. Not directly “Our Own Romantic Tale” But the tale of a Scottish lady who’s name I never knew, who we met in a very panicky state, when she was desperately looking for her lost engagement ring💍, her husband had it hand made for her when he proposed and it obviously meant so much. We had already found it and our friend was on his way to lost property, I whisked her off to catch him up only to meet him coming back. With great thanks she went on to be reunited with her very precious engagement ring. The true spirit and love of Cambridge Folk. Debbie
In 2019 on the Sunday of he festival my wonderful partner proposed to me by the duck pond, have been attending the festival on and off for 25years and once again excited to be attending this year!
My husband and I decided to get married whilst watching The Proclaimers perform ‘Let’s get married’. The following year we chose our wedding rings at Cambridge from the amazing Hairy Growler - unique and beautiful. CFF is very much part of our lives - haven’t missed one in 15 years. 💖
I’ve met lots of special people at CFF, especially Rupert Et Rupert who’s wedding I am going to with Simon, Jeni Luke and Kairsti Doidge this weekend. Congratulations, you make a beautiful couple. X
In 2007 the first time I attended Cambridge folk festival my partner Jim proposed as we lay in our tent in the early morning He said “ it’s only right and proper” .... what a romantic I never thought I’d want to be married again Later the same day he bought me a beautiful silver ring with amethyst stones and got down on one knee( in the mud ) to propose again I was madly in love and still am We did eventually get married Joan Baez was amazing
Charlotte Cross 🤔🥰
The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican have only ever played Cambridge Folk Festival once, when we had the honour of headlining the Club Stage last year. We fell in love with it, and we hope that some folk felt the love for us. It would be lovely to return one day. ♥️
CFF is my and my girlfriends ‘guaranteed little break’ just us , each year, and I love every second being with her seeing how much she enjoys it 4 days of that beautiful smile 😍😍
My wife and I bought our wedding rings at Cambridge 2 years ago , then went to show them off on our fingers to the lovely vendor we bought them from last year 😀💕
We love the Cambridge Folk Festival
Picked our wedding rings at Cambridge Folk Festival from Suay Design .... gorgeous rings and people commented during our special day.
My husband and I fell in love at CFF after being life long friends, and got engaged there 2 years later, receiving a shout out from Nick Mulvey on stage 2 months before our wedding last year! It featured heavily in both of our wedding speeches, very special place for us ❤️
I have been 18 times; my better half has come along twice. Not as much into music and festivals as I am, but he loved it and understands why I am so keen to go every year!
Seeing Frank Turner for the first time Amazing Newton Faulkner on Thursday night
I bought the best pair of shorts I've ever owned at the folkie... they traveled the world with me and I wore them when my small person played on stage in the club tent 2 years ago aged 6... heart overflowing moment
Love you Sean Pollard 💙
