Bryan Adams Returns to Cornbury

divider

Organisers of Oxfordshire’s much loved Cornbury Festival are thrilled to bring a little joy to the end of 2020, with the announcement of Bryan Adams as headliner of the festival’s Friday night line-up on 9 July 2021.

“Bryan was a triumph back at our ‘finale’ in 2017 so we’re completely over the moon that he’s decided to return to Cornbury” says organiser Hugh Phillimore. Phillimore recently announced that next year's event, the 17, will go ahead but with a limited capacity. “We’re re-designing the site to incorporate a range of Covid safety measures which will be in place throughout the festival weekend. We’ll have to limit our capacity and change to a slightly different format but we’re determined to stage another edition of our lovely little festival” says Hugh.

Friday day tickets along with weekend tickets are available now.

Canadian born, but with dual Canadian and British nationality, Adams has achieved enduring success internationally with a string of multi-million selling albums. In the UK he’s had 12 top ten singles and still holds the record for the longest consecutive No 1 with (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, which topped the charts for 16 weeks in 1991.

Bryan Adams joins an impressive Cornbury 2021 line-up – the rest of which will be announced early in the New Year.

Cornbury Festival, one of England’s most upmarket events, has featured many brilliant performers over the last 16 years – Joe Cocker, Amy Winehouse, Robert Plant, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Blondie, Bryan Ferry and The Beach Boys. The festival has gained a reputation for its unique and friendly atmosphere, set in a beautiful Cotswold location.

“Like everyone, we’ve had a miserable year with no festival this summer” adds Hugh “but we’re feeling positive and really looking forward to putting on another great event next July. Counting down the days to a weekend of fantastic music, delicious food, hopefully sunshine and, above all else, being together again!”

Day Tickets from £85, Weekend Tickets from £180, Weekend with Camping Tickets from £215. Senior, Teen & Child Concessions available. Under 3s FREE.

Cornbury Music Festival runs from 9-11 July at Great Tew Park, near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. For tickets and more information go to cornburyfestival.com
