An uplifting summer festival of the finest folk, roots and acoustic music in beautiful leafy parkland, headlined by legendary band The Waterboys (led by the brilliant and dynamic Mike Scott), Mercury Prize nominee Nick Mulvey, the innovative and enthralling This is the Kit, Kora virtuoso Sona Jobarteh with her band, internet sea shanty sensations The Longest Johns and many more.
This family friendly festival has a fun packed family area in sight and sound of the main stage so there's no need to miss your favourite artists while keeping younger festival fans entertained, plus vintage and craft tents full of inspirational makers and curators.
Unusually in the festival world you are invited to bring a picnic into the festival arena, and there is a range of mouth-watering festival street food options available too.
Folk by the Oak is just outside of London (20 mins by train from King's Cross) but feels a million miles away! Head to Folk by the Oak to immerse yourself in a day of back-to-back sublime music and festival fun.
