The weekend started with Dario G and Boney M on the main stage followed by a cascade of dazzling fireworks on the Friday evening.

The Big Weekend attracted record numbers of people to the city this year and featured performances from show-stopping artists, delighting crowds throughout the weekend.

There was a range of activities on offer including games, science and sports workshops, face painting, storytelling, pop-up art gallery, French market, food stalls and much more!
The weekend was brought to a close with a day of world music and dance celebrating ethnic diversity within Cambridge and of course the hugely popular Cambridge Mela, Cambridge's summer celebration of Asian Culture.

The Big Weekend is provided by Cambridge City Council and organised by Cambridge Live.
