The line-up for the main stage at this year’s Cambridge Rock Festival - at Haggis Farm Polo Club from August 4-7 – has been boosted this week with the addition of Space Elevator, FullHouse and Malcolm Bruce.

Full House were the band behind the legendary Frankie Miller . They will be performing many of his songs, including the huge hit “Be Good To Yourself”.
Full House comprise original guitarist Ray Minhinnett, Dave Colwell (Bad Company & Humble Pie), Terry Dresser (Paul Kosoff’s Back Street Crawler), Clive Edwards (UFO & Wild Horses), David Boyce (QuireBoys).
As the son of the legendary Jack Bruce (Cream), Malcolm Bruce has always been immersed in a musical environment. He grew up hearing and experiencing firsthand some of the finest musicians around. The list of people he has worked reads like a Who’s Who of music.
