Ready to rock - and we have tickets to win

Have your say

The final stages of planning for the 12th Cambridge Rock Festival are well underway - and we have some tickets to give away.

It gets underway with a special extra day on Wednesday, August 3, in aid of Addenbrooke’s Hospital, featuring Deep Purple’s Don Airey and friends, supported by Cream legend Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm playing a tribute to his late father.

Acclaimed guitarist (and former Womble!) Chris 
Spedding will also be appearing, together with Steve Parsons who previously worked with Cream drummer Ginger Baker in the Baker Gurvitz Army.

The main festival continues on Thursday from 11am, with the main stage headlined by Pure Floyd with their full laser show, the reformed Atomic Rooster make their first appearance for over 30 years.

Friday sees Cregan & Co (Rod Stewart’s guitarist and co-songwriter), Welsh legends Son Of Man with Deke Leonard and six other bands.

From 11am on Saturday visitors can see also four locally based bands – Derecho, 4th Labyrinth, Pearl Handled Revolver and Walkway, followed by Hekz, Colour Of Noise, 80s star Hazel O’Connor and progressive headliner Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy.
