Every year, the folks at Woodford Folk Festival unveil an absolutely massive lineup and this year is no different. Woodford Folk Festival 2016/17 is comprised of more than 400 acts performing across 25 venues, including Australian legends Paul Kelly and Charlie Owen.

There’ll also be performances from Tash Sultana, Amanda Palmer, Gang of Youths, Urthboy, Thelma Plum, The Bamboos, Half Moon Run, Dubioza Kolektiv, and many more. We must stress: this is just to name a very, very small selection of the acts who will be performing.

“Without artists we might as well be living on the surface of the Moon, devoid of the air to breathe … they provide inspiration, beauty, thoughtfulness and commentary on our lives and their influence on our culture is profound,” said festival director Bill Hauritz

“At Woodford they’re let loose and make a great festival experience for everyone.” Check out the list of headliners below and head on over to the official Woodford Folk Festival website for the a peek at the full program, which might take you a few days to get through.
