Last summer we attended Cornbury Festival for the first time and had an absolutely brilliant three days in the sunshine listening to some of our all-time favourite artists. (You can read our Cornbury Festival review here). The only dampener on the weekend was that it was supposedly the final Cornbury Festival taking place. You can imagine our delight when the organisers recently changed their minds due to pressure from the festival fans and agreed to return this summer. Today I woke up to an exciting email in my inbox, sharing the news of the Cornbury Festival lineup 2018. What a perfect way to cheer up an otherwise grey and miserable February morning!
Cornbury Festival 2018 lineup
I am absolutely delighted that Alanis Morissette is going to be headlining on Saturday, I’ve had her ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album on repeat since reading the email.
Here’s what the festival organisers have to say about the Cornbury Festival lineup this year…
Responding to a clarion call from fans to return after last year’s Fabulous Finale, the rejuvenated Cornbury Festival is back for 2018 with a fantastic UK festival exclusive. Alanis Morissette will headline the festival’s Saturday line up on July 14th. The Queen of Alt-Rock and author of the iconic ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album which has sold over 33 million copies since its release in 1995 will be the headline artist for the festival in Great Tew Park. Now in its celebratory 15th year and back for the year that wasn’t meant to happen. ‘I’m still in shock from the massive outpouring of love and support for Cornbury’ says promoter Hugh Phillimore. ‘We’re back thanks to the incredible loyalty of our fans’.
Joining Alanis on Saturday are a host of great female music stars from the legendary Mavis Staples, Scottish rocker Amy MacDonald, fellow Scots singer songwriter Nina Nesbitt, singer & actress Pixie Lott, Sixties soul star PP Arnold, Itunes chart-topping new country star Megan McKenna breaking blues guitarist Grainne Duffy, new US soulsters Southern Avenue, sonic thrill duo Kolars and harmonic trio The Adelaides.
The rest of the Cornbury line-up for Friday 13th and Sunday 15th July will be announced on March 1st. The three day festival in Oxfordshire is a family-friendly event, commended to be one of the safest festivals in the UK with activities for all ages and a favourite of local celebrities and their children.
