Shrewsbury Folk Festival manages to combine an international line-up and slick production with a relaxed and friendly vibe that makes it one of the most sought-after tickets for August Bank Holiday weekend.

With an eclectic mix of folk, roots, world & Americana, along with traditional dance and workshops there's never a dull moment if you like to keep busy. Equally there's plenty of room on the spacious site to grab a beer and sit back and enjoy the music!

Kids and teens are catered for with their own children and youth festivals with packed programmes of music, song, crafts, drama and fun.There's also an artisan craft fair, food village featuring international cuisine and vegan and veggie dishes, on-site camping and glamping and real ale, cocktail & gin bars.

The festival is based on a beautiful riverside site close to the heart of medieval Shrewsbury. Music stages and venues are surrounded by camping and glamping meaning everything is within easy reach. With onsite showers, a festival shop and a team of friendly stewards ready to help, all you need to do is pitch up, relax and enjoy the weekend!
