Sadly Coronavirus put paid to the original plans for this years Cambridge Rock Festival, the first at the festival’s new Peterborough venue. Cambridge Rock Festival will be at the East of England Arena and Events Centre in 2021 but for now, in what is believed to be the UK if not world first, the organisers present “Virtually the Cambridge Rock Festival 2020!!”, which will run on the original dates for the festival, June 18th – 21st.
What Cambridge Rock Festival has done is to put together a full CRF line-up using all the high definition footage of CRF performances. It will only feature live CRF material, and it will run throughout the times when the festival should have taken place, i.e. 5.30 pm- 11pm on Thursday and 11am – 11pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
It’s going to be freely available; a thank-you for your support, and something to lift the spirits. Yes, tickets for the 4 Day Festival are, for one year only, completely FREE. A great deal of it will be in high definition, so put the dates back on your calendar, get your beers, get settled in and in front of a big screen, ready to be at vCRF20 in spirit if not in person! Much of the video will be just like you are there, as it’s filmed from the audience – you may even see yourself in the crowd!!.
Among the 40+ bands and acts you will be able to see for free are;
- Atomic Rooster
- Larry Miller
- Don Airey
- Frank Carducci
- Mostly Autumn
- Wishbone Ash
- Son of Man with Deke Leonard
- Heather Findlay
- Ben Poole
