The line-up for the main stage at this year’s Cambridge Rock Festival has been boosted with the recent addition of Space Elevator, Full House and Malcolm Bruce.

They will be on the main stage when the festival is held at Haggis Farm Polo Club from August 4-7.

Space Elevator’s eponymously titled debut album forges a contemporary twist on the classic sounds drawn from their wide-ranging influences including the biggest names in rock history, brilliantly fronted by flamboyant lead singer “The Duchess” who was voted best female rock singer on various AOR and classic rock websites in 2015.

Full House were the band behind the legendary Frankie Miller – cited as an inspiration to many famous musicians.

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.

As an engineer, live or studio musician or support artist, these include Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Percy Jones, Little Richard, Elton John, Frankie Miller, Eric Clapton, Leslie West, Joe Satriani, Andy Fraser, Chris Spedding and Pete Brown.

Now he’s about to release his own first album and will be touring it in the spring.

They join 26 other bands so far announced for the main stage.

These include Jim Cregan & Co, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, Hazel O’Connor, Pink Fairies, Focus, Curved Air, Mostly Autumn, The Windmill, Purson… with more to come.
