Hello and welcome to Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2017

What can you expect from this “little piece of heaven”, tucked away on a glorious riverside site in the heart of Shrewsbury? Some of most established artists from the UK alongside acts celebrating folk music and dance from across the world (see the line up so far). They’ll take you on a voyage of discovery, bringing you ever-changing musical colours with their breathtaking performances.

But Shrewsbury Folk Festival is about more than just music. With a warm welcome from our volunteer stewards, we can promise a relaxed atmosphere with time for you to explore our festival site with its four sound stages, dance tent and specialist venues for our children’s and youth festivals. There are workshops galore to try, a magnificent food village, real ale and cocktail bars, craft fair, free buses into Shrewsbury town centre, pub sessions, and a great campsite.

Most of all, you are never an outsider here – you don’t need a lifetime of folk experience to have a good time and sticking your finger in your ear is optional! Whoever you are, you’ll find SFF a welcoming, happy and inspiring place to spend your festival holiday.
