Sydney Folk Festival

Presented by the Folk Federation of NSW and taking place in the heart of Sydney’s CBD the Sydney Folk Festival is a three-day celebration of folk music and culture embracing traditions old and new from our own backyard to those from across the world. This is an urban festival but it also celebrates the creativity, diversity and talent of folk arts and artists from right across NSW and, from the city to the bush there’s a lot to experience. Whether you like your folk big and rowdy or simple and spare, a solo singer expressing big ideas or a dancey outfit playing up a storm, tunes from the Balkans or songs with “bite” you’ll be spoilt for choice. Please Note: Sydney Folk Festival will not run in 2024.
