Fairport’s Cropredy Convention 2023 announces first acts.
Fairport’s Cropredy Convention three-day open-air music festival today announces the line-up of acts booked for next summer’s 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 10 August with a short acoustic performance then take the stage again on the Saturday to play the festival’s closing two-hour spot.
Other highlights include 10CC headlining on the Friday, Toyah & Robert Fripp, Kiki Dee & Carmelo Luggeri, Gilbert O’Sullivan and the UK farewell performance from Strawbs.
Inflation-busting Cropredy tickets on sale for Christmas
Three-day tickets go on sale from Monday 12 December and Fairport’s emphasis is on value-for-money. Festival director Gareth Williams says: “We know cash will be tight for everyone this year so we’ve pulled out all the stops to keep Cropredy as affordable as possible.”
Adult three-day tickets start at £155. Mr Williams says: “Our tickets are terrific value for money – 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
