After a sell-out debut last summer despite lockdown worries, Brighton and Hove Folk Festival will officially return on September 10th 2022. 

Bigger and better in new host venue Patterns, this brilliant one-day event is a welcome addition to the Brighton scene, run by established local promoters Folkroom.

Renowned illustrator and political cartoonist Chris Riddell, as patron of the festival, will be live-drawing to the music all day and into the night. Offering up a selection of the country’s brightest folk talent, Brighton and Hove Folk Festival remains committed to highlighting up-and-coming and local talent alongside some of the living legends of the scene.

The biggest coup for the festival is no doubt a headline set from Martin & Eliza Carthy. A legend of the scene, Martin Carthy’s music heavily influenced both Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, and daughter Eliza is now one of the most successful touring acts in English folk music.

Local guitar superstar Gwenifer Raymond will headline the Hobgoblin Stage, which will also see sets from singer-songwriter Rachael Dadd, BBC Folk Award-winner Ben Walker and critically acclaimed Brighton act Bird in the Belly. The main stage will celebrate some of the most exciting new acts on the scene, including bands The People Versus and Memorial, as well as acclaimed singer-songwriter Sophie Jamieson.
