After the fun of our 2016 debut event, we're doing it all again! The Cambridge Indiepop All-dayer 2017 will take place on Saturday 18 November at The Blue Moon on Norfolk Street in Cambridge.
We've got nine amazing live bands playing for us! Live music will finish by 11pm but the pub will remain open until late for drinks.
*Doors and admission*
Doors are officially at 1:30pm, although the pub side of the venue may open slightly earlier if we get set up quickly on the day.
Please note that we are completely SOLD OUT. Don't come along to the All-dayer without a ticket because we won't be able to let you in and it’ll be incredibly awkward for all involved! Ticket holders will be given a wristband so they can come and go throughout the day.

Here’s the planned running order. We’re not intending to make any significant changes but obviously this may change on the day due to unforeseen circumstances or if we’re overrunning slightly.
We’ll be finishing the live music around 10:45pm to give people time to get to the train station for the last train to Royston and London. Please note that we may overrun slightly so it’s your responsibility to keep an eye on the time!
*Eating and drinking*
We have lots of yummy food and drink options and will have an extended break between Schande and Dream Nails for you to grab something to eat. The amazing The Wandering Yak (http://wanderingyak.co.uk/) will be pulling up outside the venue to serve their vegan friendly Middle Eastern inspired street food from 4:30pm — 8:30pm. The Blue Moon will be selling delicious pizzas all day but it’s worth bearing in mind that the staff will be very busy looking after us so it may take slightly longer than usual for your pizza to arrive. There are a few other takeaways and restaurants on Norfolk Street if you’re feeling adventurous. The Mill Road area (5/10 minute walk away) has a huge number of international restaurants and some pubs. Vegan options can be found at a few places including Al-Casbah (Moroccan).
The Blue Moon is a bit of a boozy paradise with 100+ different gins and all your favourite craft beers from UK and international brewers like Redwell (Norwich), Tiny Rebel (Newport, Wales) and Rogue (Oregon, USA).
*Access and inclusivity*
We want the Cambridge Indiepop All-dayer to be a friendly and inclusive space where everybody feels comfortable. We’d like to make it clear that we regard intimidating behaviour and discrimination of any kind (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism etc) as unacceptable. If you experience any issues, please do come and talk to one of the organisers or bar staff so we can try to resolve them as soon as possible.
The venue is accessible from the street without any steps and once you’re inside, everything is on the same level (room where the bands will play, pub, toilets). A small area in the pub part of the venue is accessed by a step. The gig room is wheelchair accessible but unfortunately the toilets are not — there are no accessible toilets (i.e. toilets with grab bars or an alarm). Please speak to The Blue Moon to discuss any specific accessibility queries you may have.
All toilets in the venue will be gender neutral on the day (all genders will be able to use any of the toilets) and there will be signs up making this clear. Please respect this and let everybody use the toilets without being challenged.
*Cash machine and public transport*
The nearest cash machine is in a shop next door to the venue (we think this is free to use). There's another cash machine inside Tesco on East Road (free to use), a five-minute walk away. Across the road from Tesco, there is a cash machine in the Anglia Ruskin Student’s Union. The Blue Moon takes contactless and card payments.
Cambridge Railway station is a 20 minute walk away. There are several bus stops close by — you can use Traveline East Anglia (http://travelineeastanglia.org.uk/) to plan your journey if you’re using the bus.
Panther are the main Cambridge taxi firm and the one we usually use. Their number is 01223 715715. They’ll text when your taxi is on its way and again when it arrives at the Blue Moon so you don’t need to stand outside in the cold waiting!
