Shrewsbury Folk Festival - 25-28 August

Shrewsbury Folk Festival has a reputation for delivering the very finest acts from the UK and around the world, always searching to find new authentic artists as well as providing a platform for established performers, and never forgetting to add some fun and diversity to their concerts. The festival tries to bring quality in depth, and recognises the need to give artists and audiences the best stages, in the best marquees, with the best sound and lighting possible.

When you arrive, all of your needs are catered for: A fantastic campsite where you are never more than a few moments from a venue and where you park your vehicles next to your tent or caravan, the best set of on-site caterers on the folk (or any other) scene, great bars, proper flushing toilets and loads of excellent showers.

On-site WiFi coverage is limited but free of charge. There is loads of events and entertainment for children and young people, workshops for everyone and brilliant sessions both organised and impromptu. There are also free buses into town, an excellent on-site shop, a craft fair, a huge free car park, dance displays, open mic, and friendly, helpful stewarding teams.

Guests this year include Cara, Chris While & Julie Matthews, Coven, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar, Jamie Smith's Mabon, Jim Moray, John Kirkpatrick, Jon Boden, Le Vent Du Nord, Mick Ryan & Paul Downes, Moirai, Oysterband, Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys, Seth Lakeman, Skipinnish, The Rheingans Sisters, The Transports, The Young 'Uns, The Wilsons, The Unthanks and many more.
