Madness to headline Fairport’s Cropredy Convention opening night

CoCo and the Butterfields, Headspace and more complete the 2016 festival line-up

Fairport's Cropredy Convention have announced the final additions to the line-up for this year’s festival.

Newly confirmed are Thursday headliners Madness with the band topping the bill with all the hits from their 35 year career. Previously announced are The Bootleg Beatles bringing their revival of the fab four’s music on Friday. The traditional Saturday night headline performance from host band Fairport Convention will be preceded by a solo set from Ralph McTell.


The full line-up ranges from folkrock stalwarts Steeleye Span to emerging alt-folk band Maia, from the youthful exuberance of CoCo and the Butterfields to the hillbilly humour of Hayseed Dixie, young folk duo Gilmore & Roberts to prog rock from Lifesigns, Gryphon and Headspace.
