Being just a mere three years old, the stage known as The Den at the Cambridge Folk Festival, is the youngest out of the 49 year old Music bash. However it now has the latest line-up of brand new up and coming artists who are bursting with their own fresh offerings in music. Amongst its youth the stage has experienced the artist James Bugg, who shortly after caught the public’s eye in his direction. Yet again in the 2013 Cambridge Folk Festival, The Den holds the latest batch of newcomers who have been waiting patiently to douse the public’s ears with their talent. So what are you waiting for? See it for yourself!

Down in The Den in 2013 will be:


Marika Hackman Ellie Rusbridge Matt Tighe & Tad Sargent Cara Winter


Boho Dancer Common Tongues Rachael Dadd & Ichi Dead Rat Orchestra Janet Devlin Luke Jackson Jarlath Henderson Hot Feet Hudson Taylor Robyn Sherwell
