Brighton & Hove Folk Festival is coming this September

With a heavy heart, we took the decision to shelve Folkroom’s ten-year anniversary celebration and launch of the first full Folkroom festival last Summer. So we’re delighted to confirm that the inaugural Brighton and Hove Folk Festival will finally be going ahead on September 11th 2021!

Joined by our patron, renowned illustrator and political cartoonist Chris Riddell who will be live-drawing to the music across the day, it’s an all-day event spread across three stages at The Brunswick in Hove. Offering up a selection of the brightest talent in Britain today, the festival champions the inclusivity of the British folk scene and pays special attention to the thriving Sussex folk tradition. Whether you’ve a taste for traditional or contemporary folk, there’ll be something for everyone, with food, drink and fantastic music in easy reach whatever the weather.

 The main stage will see some of the UK’s foremost folk bands, singers, songwriters and musicians perform with spellbinding live illustrations by renowned illustrator and political cartoonist Chris Riddell. The basement stage will present traditional and contemporary folk music, whilst the showcase stage will offer intimate and unplugged sets by some of the most engaging new voices across the scene. After a year without any live music, Brighton and Hove Folk Festival will be a chance to catch up with your favourite acts and discover plenty of new ones. 

We’ll be announcing the line-up in the coming weeks. Tickets are limited though, so it might be worth bagging yours now!
