The Cornbury Music Festival retains a spirit of independence and the feel of a glorious garden fete, despite having featured a huge host of big names since its first edition in 2004 including; Paul Simon, Robert Plant, Amy Winehouse, Bryan Adams, Blondie, The Beach Boys, Bryan Ferry, Jamie Cullum, Olly Murs & Jools Holland to name only a few of the legends that have graced their stages, the festival retains an intimate and boutique atmosphere, rated as one of the safest, family friendly festivals in the UK.
Local boy Jack Savoretti, a festival favourite discovered at Cornbury in his early days, now holding court on prime time Tv shows such as Graham Norton & Jonathan Ross bags the Saturday July 11th headline slot. Another Cornbury regular Mike Scott with The Waterboys will be gracing the main stage and expected to cause a rousing Saturday night sing along from the Cornbury crowd! The band have recently enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity following the final series, final episode sound bed of their classic ‘The Whole Of The Moon’ for the HBO smash ‘The Affair’. And finally, bringing the inevitable party spirit and Summer vibes to the proceedings, Kid Creole joins them with the inimitable Coconuts playing their UK festival exclusive!
Friday headliners Van Morrison and Dido were announced last month.
‘We’ve always worked with the best songwriters and performers at Cornbury and we’ve certainly landed them this year’ says promoter Hugh Phillimore. ‘Along with Van Morrison and Dido, this year’s Cornbury is shaping up to be one of our very best’ adds Hugh.
