Sydney Folk Festival

Sydney Folk Festival

The Sydney Folk Festival is a long-overdue celebration of all those musical genres that sit under the big, joyous ‘folk music’ umbrella. The term ‘folk music’ has come to represent everything from our traditional music, mostly born in the bush, through to singer songwriters who carry on the tradition of storytelling in music. It also takes in all those musical expressions that have found their way to our country representing the streams of migration from the First Fleet through to those who arrived last week.

This is an urban festival and our venues are in the heart of the city, five minutes from Sydney Town Hall. We have been fortunate to secure venues in walking distance that offer an experience like no other festival.
