vCRF 2020 Warm-up Arena

Sunday

Bulletin Board

  • DO NOT WATCH ANYWHERE ELSE. There are scammers out there - tell your friends that! They should ONLY watch vCRF20 HERE, using the official CRF website. It is FREE.

  • Since the first vCRF20, we have added our own 'virtual private server' in addition to previous web servers.

  • Check your download speed if you don't know it then use an appropriate quality level

  • Let us know if you have problems and please tell us band, time and server - it's at the top of the page.

  • Please go to the band merch/websites and help them by buying something!

Think of this as being in the CRF arena, with stages all around you... 

Just click the band name to read about them. Or read about next year's 'proper' CRF line-up here: 

This warm-up and the full vCRF20 are free to watch .... there is no entrance fee

... however, it has cost us something to make it happen and we've incurred losses with the aborted CRF20. If you would like to make a donation please do so using the button here. Anything you donate will be used to help us with CRF21.

Please also sign up to our newsletter so we can send you CRF21 news.

Every band has given their consent to use these videos, free of charge.

Please support them by buying their merchandise!

We've added a virtual 'Merchandise Table' for every band (where we can), visible during their set.

First, see who is playing, where and when

There is a full line-up below of bands who are playing a full 'set'. All sets have been compiled either by us using fan-shot high definition video or were shot by our professional film crew as shown on the screens beside the stage in earlier years.

We have also shown the full line-up for the festival itself - click the band names to find out about the bands or the content of some compilations (the ones that are anagrams of 'Cambridge Rock'!). You can see all the bands included in compilations by using the link here.

Then click the buttons below to go to the stages - when they are due to play!

There are at least two servers for most options. If one seems too "busy" (i.e. your video won't run properly) then try a different server, and/or check your own internet download speed and if necessary try a slower speed. The trade-off is that picture quality may be affected.

If you are having problems...

Here are some useful links that we hope will answer your questions. Please check here before messaging us, preferably using the comments button here. Please tell us the band and the server - both are at the top of the screen, so we can monitor the situation. We'll check there from time to time and respond when we can - it may not be immediate!

Clicking F5 on your keyboard to refresh the screen may help sometimes.
