THE DEN 2019

The Den is the festival’s space for young, up-and-coming acts, presenting the stars of tomorrow in an intimate and relaxed environment.
Cambridge Folk Festival has always had a special relationship with talent across all the stages and The Den is seen as equally important for artists and festival-goers alike. Set in a beautiful Indian marquee, the stage offers a real ‘up close and personal’ experience whereby performers can nurture their live performance skills.
Past performers have gone on to global success and can credit Cambridge as one of their big breaks. From Ward Thomas, The Staves and Passenger to The Wandering Hearts and Jake Bugg, The Den has been THE place to see the future of folk music.
