Sydney Folk Festival 2022 – Dates Announced

Our SydFolkFest Team is pleased to announce the Sydney Folk Festival 2022 will take place over the weekend 19/20/21 August.

We can’t wait to see you all next August and are delighted to let you know that we will be inviting our booked 2021 artists to be part of our 2022 event. We’re certainly hoping most, if not all, will be available and will keep you up to date as news unfolds.

PERFORMER APPLICATIONS

Yes, we will definitely be calling for new applications for 2022 so please stay tuned for our announcement as to when these will open. It’s going to be a BIG year and we certainly deserve it after all we’ve been through.

In the meantime visit the Performers Page to see our 2021 list of acts including those pictured below: L-R: Fiona Ross, Austral, The Fallen Robins, Christina Mimmocchi and Greg White and Sullie.

Get Your Folk On!

Are you joining us for SydFolkFest21? 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

Where to Find SydFolkFest21

SydFolkFest21 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 and dance spaces. Our second hub is the Gaelic Club, 1/64 Devonshire St hosting a range of events throughout the weekend.

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.

While we are inviting our booked 2021 performers to be part of SFF22 there will be so much more 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.
