Marillion, Richard Thompson Lead Cropredy 2017 Lineup


(Prog) The first acts for next year's Cropredy festival have been confirmed, with Marillion and Richard Thompson leading the list. The annual event, hosted by Fairport Convention, will take place on the weekend of August 10-12 in 2017 - and it'll also mark five decades since the band's inception.

Fairport Convention say: "Returning by popular demand, we welcome back prog rock giants Marillion. The band, with perhaps the most loyal following on the planet, just don't stop touring and are currently on the road promoting their 18th studio album F.E.A.R.

"We know we don't need to tell you that Richard has received lifetime achievement awards on both sides of the Atlantic, a prestigious Ivor Novello Award, and in 2011 was presented with an OBE - but it's nice to be reminded.

"Richard will also be joining us on Saturday night for our 50th anniversary celebrations." here.
