Why should you support us?

One of our ambitions has always been to provide opportunities for emerging talent, which we do through:

The Den
The Den is a stage dedicated to emerging talent.  It is located just away from the bustle of the main stages, and set within a beautiful Indian marquee, decorated to create a quirky, welcoming and intimate space. Artists who have performed in the Den include Nick Mulvey and Jake Bugg. 

The Hub
The Hub is committed to identifying, supporting and encouraging specifically young emerging talent. The workshops for children and young people on each day of the festival are well attended by festival goers and are led by musicians who are performing at the festival who provide inspiration as well as musical knowledge to these young people.

Showcase artists
Each year the Festival choses five up and coming folk artists or bands as showcase artists. These artists are given the opportunity to perform at the Club Tent giving them a unique platform to gain experience of performing to larger audiences at the Festival.


Cambridge Folk Festival understands that the provision of opportunity for new talent is vital to developing the next generation of headliners and providing exciting new music for real music lovers. Join the club and help us deliver on our ambitions for the next 50 years (and more!).
