However last year’s event there was called off after neighbours lodged complaints about noise “and chaos” in the area.

Organisers say the 20th anniversary Cambridge Rock Festival is set to offer their biggest selection of music in 4 days ever.

Ticket prices start from £34 for a Thursday ticket, or 4-day tickets are on available through their “variable pay-what-you-can-afford scheme” currently varying from £139 – £159.

Line up is in the final stages of completion and features the likes of Classic Rock, Blues Rock, Soul, Ska, Folk Rock. There are three stages to choose from.
