The Next Generation of Folk: A celebration of the many musical genres that sit under the big colourful umbrella that is modern-day folk staged over three days at several indoor venues centred around a strip of Pitt Street, Sydney CBD, near Town Hall.

Features legends like Eric Bogle, The Seeker’s Keith Potger and internationally famous Mara World Music Ensemble. Contemporary artists include folk-jazz fusion band Luke Plumb and The Circuit and classically-trained world-music ensemble Chaika.

Celebrate Sydney’s multicultural diversity with the likes of Riley Lee, first-ever Western shakuhachi grandmaster, in concert with harpist Cliona Molins or Sydney Chinese Traditional Music Ensemble; and diverse Celtic roots too with the innovative young band The Last Aurochs, the Scottish Kejafi, the legendary Señor Cabrales and more.

A weekend (season) ticket or day ticket, makes you part of the whole festival with a choice of continuous concerts across multiple venues featuring singer-songwriters, Bluegrass, Afro-Funk, World Beats, Western Swing, Celtic, Cajun, Anglo-Balladry, Blues, Shanties and more. You can also hear expert musicians discussing their craft, enjoy impromptu music sessions, poetry or storytelling or just lounge and listen in the festival bars and eateries. A Folk Federation of NSW event.
