Welcome to the team... Nick Mulvey!

Monday 24 September 2018

We're thrilled to announce that local lad, Nick Mulvey will be returning to Cambridge in 2019 as the Festival’s guest curator. Responsible for picking a selection of his favourite artists who will feel at home with the Cherry Hinton crowd, Nick’s curation will proudly sit across the line up in August next year.

Beyond his role as guest curator, Nick will also take to the main stage for his own performance. He returns to the event that has seen him graduate from emerging talent platform The Den in 2012 through the stages, to sit at the curatorial helm for 2019.

Nick follows 2018’s curator Rhiannon Giddens who excelled in her role this year, introducing acts to the stage, performing three times herself and taking part in debates and Q&As that became defining moments of the festival.

Born and bred in Cambridge, Nick studied at Chesterton Community College before embarking on his musical career which saw him travel across the globe. Having sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall earlier this year performing as a trio, Nick is currently on an 18-date run at more intimate spaces across the UK and Ireland, including towns that Nick has never previously performed at. These shows bring the evolution of Nick’s touring of his second album, Wake Up Now, on a full circle journey from five-piece, to trio, and now right back to just Nick and his guitar.

Tickets are now on sale for members of the 1965 Club and general booking opens at 10am, Monday 1 October. You can get your tickets for the 2019 festival HERE
