Friday night's headliners are yet to be announced, but there is guaranteed to be even more music on offer for weekend ticket holders. 

As well as music, The Cambridge Club will also serve up a three-day feast of arts, culture and wellbeing, with something for all ages.

Experienced instructors will lead morning mindfulness and yoga sessions, and there will be comedy, talks and live podcasts. For children and their parents, The Imagination Station will also offer educational and entertaining activities.

A wide variety of food and drink will also be available - representing cuisines from all over the world.

The festival's MD William Young said: "We are honoured to be welcoming such iconic artists to The Cambridge Club next year. 

"Since we started out, these were some of the dream names on our list, so we're absolutely blown away to be able to announce them.

"It's the most apt and exciting line-up we could have wished for following the breakout success of last year."
