Cambridge Folk Festival’s Neil Jones says: “The addition of First Aid Kit cements a line up that is both one of our strongest and most eclectic in years. The band’s performance is set to be a real Festival highlight this summer, and their Friday night headline appearance continues what is a new era for one of the UK’s most loved and iconic festivals”

2018 is the first year of Cambridge Folk Festival’s historic twinning with the legendary US Newport Folk Festival. This partnership will herald the beginning of a new transatlantic artistic relationship, allowing two iconic festivals that have grown up together since the 1960s to share ideas, experiences and indeed artists
