C.R.F. June 2021

East Of England Showground


Peterborough, Cambs

ANNOUNCEMENT - CRF20 is postponed to June 2021

Like everyone, we have been closely following the rapidly changing developments on the coronavirus pandemic.

It has become clear that we cannot realistically go ahead on the original dates of 18-21 June. The peak of the epidemic in the UK is projected to be in June.  Some members of our team will need to self-isolate due to underlying personal health conditions.  Disruption and uncertainty affect all aspects of the event.

We have discussed various options for rescheduling CRF with our partners, including the Showground, artists, contractors, volunteers and staff, and are extremely grateful for everyone's understanding, support and patience.  It's clear from everyone we've talked to that there is an immense desire to make CRF happen!

Although we have been considering rescheduling to the autumn, this is too dependent on the uncertain progression of the pandemic, the onset of winter for campers, and the availability of the venue and artists.  Therefore we have settled on June 2021, with the aim to bring you an even better festival experience.


Existing Ticket Holders

Hold on to your tickets! They remain valid. Tickets will automatically be accepted for the future event and we will also add an extra benefit for you, our loyal supporters. The Showground has guaranteed we can run again in June 2021 but we await confirmation of the exact date (likely the same weekend).  We have told every band scheduled for this year that we intend to run with the exact same line-up, if they are up for it! Once we have a clear way ahead, we will give you a further update and for anyone who has purchased and retains their CRF20 ticket there will be a "Bring A Friend" offer (details will follow), our special thank you for sticking with CRF through these difficult times. 

If you have any issues or want to discuss any ticketing matters feel free to call me on 01353 749749.

Please continue to bear with us and thank you for your patience and support.  In the meantime, above all, please, stay safe everyone!

Cambridge Rock Festival is run by volunteer music fans for music fans, with a great friendly, non-corporate vibe! 2020 was scheduled to showcase around 65 acts appearing over four days on three stages at our new site in Cambridgeshire at the East Of England Showground, Peterborough, just a couple of minutes drive off of the A1(M). Due to the coronavirus, the event is postponed to June 2021 but as long as the bands are able to do so, the intention is to retain the planned line-up!

Our new site will have great benefits for you, the fans, including tiered seating, hard standing for cars, permanent buildings, better transport links and cheaper accommodation for those not wishing to camp. It will also make life easier for us and we hope secure the CRF for the future! More details of the changes relating to the new venue can be found here


The festival will continue to feature its usual real-ale bars (other drinks are available!) and the new specialist gin, Pimms & prosecco bar and there will still be an outside seating areaOn-site camping with parking by your tent and free car parking will all continue.
