About

WELCOME

After a celebrated return in 2019, Bristol Folk Festival is back for our second festival from Friday 30 April to Sunday 2 May 2021.  The UK’s best-loved folk artists take to stages across the city alongside the best of the west.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The festival is headlined by Kate Rusby, Jon Boden & the Remnant Strings and Lucy Ward with an exceptional bill of artists across the weekend. We open on Friday Night at Clifton Cathedral, and St George’s Bristol forms the heart of the festival over the rest of the weekend, whilst Bristol Folk House also hosts ceilidhs and upbeat sets. Keep your eyes peeled for dance, singarounds, sessions and live interviews over the weekend.


TICKETS

Buy a weekend ticket and join us for the whole weekend (a saving of £20+) or book into individual sessions.
There are 5 main concert sessions, each with a major headliner from the world of folk.

GLASS STUDIO and BRISTOL FOLK HOUSE

More concerts and ceilidhs will be announced for the Glass Studio at St George’s and Bristol Folk House. These are ticketed separately, with some space reserved for weekend ticket holders on a first-come, first-served basis.
