Sydney Folk Festival 2021

Sydney Folk Festival will showcase the diversity of folk music and the folk arts in NSW and beyond with an event that is fresh, vibrant and engaging. We are confident of staging a live event but there may also be some streaming elements. If the unthinkable happens and live events are cancelled we will go to an online format as we did in 2020.

What to Expect – SFF21

  • A celebration of folk music, culture and community
  • Bespoke concerts highlighting the diversity of folk
  • Workshops and interactive sessions
  • Dance and spoken word programs

Our artistic team is looking for performers, poets, dance and community groups that represent a range of styles under the broad umbrella of folk, everything from music that represents our First Nations peoples to that which reflects the multiplicity of our Australian culture. Whether you’re involved in acoustic, 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 want to hear from you.

Please note: Applications to perform NOW CLOSED

The Sydney Folk Festival is organised by the Folk Federation of NSW – supporting folk music and the folk arts in NSW and beyond.
