45years ago we embarked on a musical journey to produce one of the most exciting traditional festival experiences you could want … and we believe that the next festival will be the best yet.
High quality.
We invite you to join us in this celebratory year to share a weekend with friends old and new ... see and hear some of the very best in the folk world.
With over 200 separate events in just one weekend there will be something for everyone.

We have countless repeat visits, some every year since the very first festival in Lacock ‘72
Just one look at our large guest list is an indication of some of the great artists over the weekend
including Isla St Clair, Bob Fox from Warhorse and the brilliant Jez Lowe and countless other artists from all levels of the folk world.

If you are looking for an alternative to the huge marquee style festival in a muddy field then Chippfolk is for you ! Concerts, Dances, Street Entertainment, Sessions and much, much more are planned on the menu.On the central Island Park site you will
find a great welcome with an extraordinary collection of music traders, food and crafts. The Children’s Festival is here too ensuring our smallest fans are well catered for.

Getting to the festival is easy. We are just a few miles from the M4, are on the main line from London, Bristol & Wales and the National Bus routes. We are also working with Liftshare to make your journey cheaper and maybe even making new friends before you get to the festival.

Want a weekend pass for free?
Why not do a few hours work and get to see lots of your favourite festival for nothing. We need working crew, stewards and general staff to help make the festival work. Email us at for details
