Summer is here, and you know what that means. It’s the season that brings you endless fun, excitement and adventure. It’s also the time when music lovers unite at the Cornbury Music Festival.
Since 2004, this celebrated music event has boasted enormous crowds coming together to enjoy the mind-blowing performances of world famous artists.
The very basis of the festival according to its founder Hugh Phillimore was to promote and support music of different genres across Britain. And the talent that the event has given a platform to, has never once disappointed the audience.
The popular festival has seen the attendance of celebrities from the likes of Bryan Adams and Jim Morrison to ex-Prime Minister David Cameron himself. The Cornbury Festival was also proud to present the internationally famed songwriter Alanis Morrissette as part of its music lineup in the most recent session of the event.
This unique family friendly event invites music lovers from all over the UK and beyond to enjoy outdoor picnics, make new friends, and sway to the rhythm of the music being played. Cornbury has continued to embrace the diverse and multicultural spirit of the country.
“The very display of such unity is exemplary of what it means to be English”
