Steeleye Span, Hayseed Dixie, Ralph McTell and Gryphon are among the first acts announced for Fairport’s Cropredy Convention next year.

Tickets are now on sale for the three-day festival held from August 11-13 and the event was yet another success this year with the likes of Toyah Willcox, Katzenhammer and Deadzone performing to thousands of people.

Other acts announced for next year’s festival include the Bootleg Beatles, Sound of the Sirens and Willie and the Bandits, who will perform with Fairport Convention.

A three-day ticket cost £120 with a camping sticker costing £45. The first 800 pre-Christmas orders will receive a special Fairport Christmas Card signed by the band and the first 2000 ticket orders will receive a souvenir Cropredy car sticker. Camping stickers must be purchased separately.
