This year, as part of its aim to develop young audiences, Cambridge Live has introduced new reduced ticket prices for 16-17 and 18-21-year-olds, and retained the 2015 price for 5-15 year-olds.

The festival, which has been running since 1965, welcomed The Proclaimers, Passenger, Nick Mulvey, CoCo & The Butterfields and Flo Morrissey to last year’s event.

Held in the parkland setting of Cherry Hinton Hall, the festival is known for its relaxed atmosphere, and family friendliness, offering covered and open stages, street theatre, music workshops, real ale bars, a youth area, internet café, storytelling, a free crèche, paddling pool and playground.

The festival line-up will be announced by Cambridge Live in spring 2016.

Adult tickets for the full festival cost £159, day prices start at £26.50 and concession prices are available for city residents.
