Get Your Folk On!

Are you joining us for SydFolkFest22? There’s no better way to find your folk.  Whether you like it a little bit trady, a little bit revival or spiced up with modern grooves and catchy hooks you’ll find plenty on our program to get your folk on. Styles come together often fusing elements of rock, classical or jazz to create emerging contemporary folk genres. It’s an adventure you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a brilliant merging of styles – a folk, jazz, world fusion from Pansuri

Where to Find SydFolkFest22

SydFolkFest22 will have two main Festival hubs in Surry Hills not far from Central Station and within 700m walking distance of each other. Our main hub is the NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre, 37 Reservoir St where you’ll find two concert venues and our workshop spaces. Our second hub is the Gaelic Club, 1/64 Devonshire St hosting a range of events throughout the weekend.

Here’s “Blue Skies” from folk, alt-country artist Felicity Dowd 

SydFolkFest22 – Program and Artists

Well, third time lucky as we look forward to August 2022 when SydFolkFest will come around to delight audiences and celebrate the rich palette of folk music and its related arts. We know you will be spoilt for choice and look forward to welcoming you to share the world of folk.

We’ve invited our booked artists from 2021 to be part of SFF22 and are delighted that most have come on board for this year’s event. There will be so much on offer and we simply cannot wait to share more with you including the final program. Of course it’s early days yet but whether you love acoustic folk, blues, roots, bluegrass, Celtic, country or music that expresses one of the many folk traditions from our own back yard to those from around the world we’re sure you’ll find music and folk culture to engage your senses and delight. Stay connected as SFF22 unfolds and view our Artists HERE.

SFF22 reserves the right to add, withdraw and/or substitute artists or change scheduled program times as circumstances deem necessary.

This is going to be great. If you want to catch a spectacular addition who will take the audience by storm, Rinchen Dorjee is the guy. Brand new to the festival scene and beautiful voice! Singing music from Tibet.

Fabulous to see Fred and his band on the program

Great line-up, SFF!
