Fairport announced the line-up of acts booked for next summer’s three-day event. A few more acts have yet to be confirmed and these will be announced in February.

The event will take place at Cropredy near Banbury on Thursday 10, Friday 11 and Saturday 12 August, 2023.

The festival will feature its usual eclectic mix of acts - everything from acoustic folk to rock and prog and all things in between. Host band Fairport Convention will open the festival on Thursday with a short acoustic performance then take the stage again on the Saturday to play the festival’s closing two-hour spot.

Inflation-busting Cropredy tickets are on now sale in time for Christmas.

Mr Williams said: “Despite booming costs we’ve kept the ticket price increase well below inflation. For example, Tier 1 tickets have gone up by just £10 – that’s only a tenner more than our 2020 prices!”

As an added incentive the first 1,000 ticket orders will get a Christmas card signed by the members of Fairport Convention.

One-day and two-day tickets will go on sale in February. Full ticket and booking information is on the Fairport Convention website – www.fairportconvention.com/faqs
