You Oughta Know (geddit?) that Cornbury Festival is back this year with a femme-tastic, Saturday-shaped line up on 14 July.

 

Morissette, the Canadian artist behind the iconic Jagged Little Pill album - which has sold 33 million copies since 1995 - will be the headline artist for the festival in Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire.

 

I mean, if you're over the age of 25 and you haven't sung Ironic on Karaoke after one-too-many at least once in your life - what have you been doing with your weekends?

 

 

As well as the lovely Alanis, Cornbury has filled its boots with female artists this year...

 

From the legendary Mavis Staples, to Scots Amy MacDonald and singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, singer and actress Pixie Lott and sixties soul star PP Arnold, to country star Megan McKenna, blues guitarist Grainne Duffy, US soulsters Southern Avenue, "sonic thrill duo" Kolars, and harmonic trio The Adelaides, there really is something for everyone.

 

Celebrating its 15th year, festival promotor Hugh Phillimore said: "I’m still in shock from the massive outpouring of love and support for Cornbury. We’re back thanks to the incredible loyalty of our fans."

 

The three day festival in Oxfordshire is a family friendly event, commended to be one of the safest festivals in the UK with activities for all ages. More acts will be announced on 1 March.
