The UKâ€™s most beautiful boutique festival continues its eclectic musical tradition as it announces the line up for its 6th glorious year. With a fusion of indie pop Brit nominees Scouting for Girls and â€˜Belle de Jourâ€™ Imelda May, the stage is shared with inimitable girl group The Sugababes and Chrissie Hyndeâ€™s legendery rock outfit The Pretenders.
â€œCornbury is a unique experience in all manner of waysâ€, says promoter Hugh Phillimore. â€œWeâ€™re immensely proud of our musical diversity and family friendly ethos. Where else could you see The Damned and the Sugababes on one bill?â€
The festival embraces the â€˜something for everyoneâ€™ approach. From alt rockers The Magic Numbers and rising stars Teddy Thompson and Ava Leigh, to the retro classic chic of Sharleen Spiteri, Cornbury attracts festival goers from all age ranges and with all manner of tastes.
Cornbury is about its beautiful Cotswold location, fantastic food, hot air balloons, the madness of the many morris dance pageant, childrenâ€™s theatre workshops, great festival shops and a huge fairground all held together by a carefully selected spectrum of top music talent. Typically English â€“ eccentric, eclectic and inclusive â€“ a farmersâ€™ market with a dancefloor, a county fayre with a rock â€˜nâ€™ roll twist indeed!
