Cornbury Music Festival 2013
The Cornbury Music Festival has announced a marvelous line-up of popular stars to celebrate its anniversary. Keane, Squeeze, Van Morrison and Amy MacDonald are some of the musicians that will headline the one-of-a-kind event from the 5th to the 7th of July at Oxfordshire's Great Tew Estate.
This year, Imelda May May returns for an eighth time, along with other festival's favourites like Bellowhead, Beverley Knight, The Proclaimers, Echo & The Bunnymen, Seth Lakeman and Tift Merritt.
New artists performing at the festival include X-Factor winner James Arthur, Emilia Mitiky, King Charles, Lawson, Jack Savoretti, Lucy Spraggan and world music pioneers Osibisa.
Eccentric, charming and irresistible, the Cornbury Festival is an event like no other. It is the only family-friendly festival that is not only an electric and eccentric musical carnival, but also a dynamic summer festival disguised as a country fayre, and a charmingly crafted, top-notch, very English open air party.
Put some sugar on... festival-goers. In the midst of music and with the help of love of pie, at Cornbury music lovers share puddings and a glass of champagne with superstars, toffs, rockers, crooners, Morris dancers, farmers, urbanites, fashionistas, gourmet chefs and the little old cakes who won't share with everyone else which is the secret ingredient in their fabulous cakes.
The festival offers classic summer entertainment for everyone, no matter their tastes or ages. There is an electric mix of music across 4 stages, an area for children with a complete programme of workshops daily, the best of the festival caterers with a huge choice of culinary delights, an extensive range of arts and crafts stalls, roaming entertainers, a fin filled fairground, relaxing therapy and massage zone, a farmer's market selling local produce, the fabulous Disco Shed for those who want to dance their socks off, an exclusive VIP area, beautiful campsites, and above all a magical atmosphere that suits everyone.
