As per usual, the Woodford Folk Festival musical offering is second to none, offering up a sonic platter of some of the most exciting acts from both home and overseas across a range of genres. Heavy-hitters on this year’s bill include the likes of John Butler, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Beautiful Girls, Husky, Holy Holy, The East Pointers, The Babe Rainbow, Timberwolf and Montaigne. When you add a range of around-the-clock entertainment and dozens more bands, it’s practically impossible to leave without a new favourite act. Oh, and did we mention that the likes of legends Dr. Karl and Tracey Spicer will be headlining the speaking events? So good for the brain.
The concert component isn’t the only thing that keeps punters coming back for more – at Woodford Folk Festival you will find a range of activities to the tune of dancing spectaculars, street theatre, writers’ panels, comedy sessions, acoustic jams and stacks more. The festival has a huge rep for being clean, green and sustainably run, so it’s no surprise that there is an entire environmental program with talks, debates and films to help inspire and educate the masses. When you add art and craft workshops, circus performances and workshops, late night cabarets and one heck of a fire event, it makes sense to stay for more than just a day.
If you’ve found yourself craving some New Year’s cheer, you can check out the ticket and camping packages still available over at the Woodford Folk Festival website.
