Cambridge Folk Festival has long been renowned for providing a platform for up and coming new artists and nurturing promising young talent. This commitment continues in 2022 with thrilling line-ups for Emerging Talent Stage The Den and The Club Tent.

Catch tomorrow’s stars today in The Den, a smaller stage specially established to support musicians at the beginning of their careers. Well-known for spotting future hitmakers – Jake Bugg and Passenger first played The Den before headlining Stage 1 – Cambridge has assembled an impressive list of names sure to become new favourites. Sign-up slots will be available each day too.

Now in its 4th year, the Christian Raphael Prize seeks to award a talented musician or groups of musicians the tools they need to take the next step towards becoming a successful professional. 18 of the artists performing in The Den will be considered for this prize and last year’s winner Nick Hart is performing at the Club Tent this year.

A long-running staple of the Festival, The Club Tent not only hosts performances from local folk clubs throughout the weekend but also offers the chance to see newer artists in an intimate setting. 2022’s eclectic programme guarantees some must-see moments and includes the Cambridge Folk Festival ’22 Tastemaker Showcase Series.
