Cropredy Headline Acts Announced!
We are delighted to announce the first acts booked for Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2008.
Our headliners on Thursday 7 August will be SUPERGRASS. This fabulous Oxford four-piece band has released three platinum-selling albums and their joyous guitar-driven music and fun-loving attitude are ideally suited to Cropredy's vibe.
Friday night will be headlined by legendary folkrockers LEVELLERS. The band was recently honoured with the award for 'Festival Feel-Good Act' at the 2007 UK Festival Awards. Bring your dancing shoes! More...

With two acclaimed solo albums to her name, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Julie was awarded 'Folk Singer of the Year' at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards on February 4 2008 (pictured here receiving her award from KT Tunstall).
Fairport's Cropredy Convention - 2008!
The fields of Cropredy have now grown back as is evident from the photograph taken this morning by Gareth Williams from the 'bar'. Nearly all traces of the festival have disappeared and there are animals back grazing on most of the campsites.
Jayne Matthews and her team did an astonishing job with the post-festival clean-up and all the landowners have commented on it. Thanks Jayne!
And so we must turn our attention to Fairport's Cropredy Convention - 2008. We are pleased to announce that the dates for next year's festival are 7-9 August. More...
