Now 12-years-old, the Cambridge Rock Festival will return for a long weekend of blues, folk rock and classic rock from August 4 to 7.

Armed with three stages, more than 100 bands and a camping space, the event promises to be the biggest yet.

Before the official event, a charity concert day will be held on August 3 in aid of Addenbrooke’s Hopsital.

Deep Purple’s Don Airey and Friends will perform, as well as The Broadside Boys and Fresh Cream.

Kicking-off the main event though, Pure Floyd, Atomic Rooster, Miss-Led, Purple Jimi and Ozzy Ozzspawn will take to the stage, based at the Haggis Farm Polo Club.

Rod Stewart’s former musical director and co-songwriter will even be at the festival, performing with his group Cregan and Co, as well as Colour of Noise, Mostly Autumn and Malaya Blue.

Tickets start at £25 for a single day, or £20 for the charity event.
