Jump confirmed for Cambridge Rock

Jump have been confirmed for this year’s Cambridge Rock.

The festival takes place in the UK university city on August 4-7, with Jump playing on the Classic Rock Society Stage on Friday, August 5.

Other artists confirmed for the event include Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, Mostly Autumn, Curved Air and Focus.

Jump have also announced four dates prior to the festival appearance, starting at Aylesbury’s Limelight Theatre on April 16. The shows have been lined up in support of their recently announced 13th album Over The Top.

Frontman John Dexter Jones said of the record: “Our last album The Black Pilgrim was predominantly an acoustic affair. While those instruments occasionally still came to hand during these sessions, it’s fair to say that the electric guitars and keyboards came in for rather more attention this time. We’re very happy with the outcome.”

Further album details will be issued in due course.
