Now in its celebratory 15th year and back for the year that wasn’t meant to happen. ‘I’m still in shock from the massive outpouring of love and support for Cornbury’ says promoter Hugh Phillimore. ‘We’re back thanks to the incredible loyalty of our fans’.

Joining Alanis on Saturday are a host of great female music stars from the legendary Mavis Staples, Scottish rocker Amy MacDonald, fellow Scots singer songwriter Nina Nesbitt, singer & actress Pixie Lott, Sixties soul star PP Arnold, Itunes chart topping new country star Megan McKenna breaking blues guitarist Grainne Duffy, new US soulsters Southern Avenue, sonic thrill duo Kolars and harmonic trio The Adelaides.
