WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL Wed 27 - Mon 1

First, thank you for your incredible support last year. It was our biggest - and dare we say it - 'our best' festival in our history. The festival was the cleanest, most respectful, most energetic and beautiful we’ve seen - you are the best.

The programme for this year may be previewed HERE!

Ticket sales are online for our Woodford Folk Festival. We encourage you,

Ticket sales are online for our Woodford Folk Festival. We encourage you, more than ever, to pre-purchase tickets and pick up the early bird ticket savings. Get in early to secure your tickets at the best possible price.

Because of our growing popularity, we’ve made big changes that you need to know about. We’ve summarised these here but you can click on the links shown for a deeper narrative on these changes.

To protect our festival’s comfort levels and beautiful spirit, we are capping all tickets to the festival. The New Year’s Eve cap will be set at the same attendance as last year.

All tickets must now be purchased online - even day passes during the festival. Tickets will NOT be available for purchase at the festival gates.

Tickets are more expensive this year. It has to happen.

Everyone with vehicles will now need to buy a vehicle pass. This aims to free up shaded camping space and reduce traffic volume.

Payment Plans are now available for Day Tickets as well as Season Tickets.

View the POSTER for the following overseas acts.

Award winning Canadian trio The East Pointers, American folk supergroup Molsky’s Mountain Drifters and Rocky Mountain five-piece The Railsplitters make up a trifecta of world class folk acts performing across the nation as part of the Woodfordia Inc. summer tours.

The tour series kicked off at Mullum Music Festival over the weekend, as The East Pointers played the first of their 20 dates to a packed out, all-dancing crowd.

Back in Australia for a third consecutive year the trio will showcase tracks from their latest release What We Leave Behind, a record blurring the line between traditional and popular music, carving a new path for the popular band.

This weekend The East Pointers head to Queenscliff Music Festival for three performances before hitting the far reaches of the country including Melbourne, Hobart, Fremantle and Darwin, stopping for six shows at the Woodford Folk Festival.

It’s at the Woodford Folk Festival where they’ll join Molksy’s Mountain Drifters and The Railsplitters, with each band playing several shows across six days to folk-loving, foot-stomping fans at the largest gathering of artists and performers of its kind in Australia.

After making their first ever Woodford appearance, The Railsplitters - a high-energy bluegrass Americana band - will hit Aussie roads for the first time to embark on a nine-date tour of eastern Australia.

Taking their fusion of traditional Appalachian music merged with musical influences ranging from samba to hip-hop, The Railsplitters will travel to Brisbane, making their way down to Bellingen, Wauchope, Cygnet Music Festival in Tasmania, Hobart and Sheffield before wrapping up in Sydney.

Also starting an East Coast tour after their first ever Woodford Folk Festival appearance, Molsky’s Mountain Drifters will spend the first two weeks of the New Year playing another 10 shows around the country.

Well known in his native America, fiddle frontman Bruce Molsky is something of a folk legend, and brings with him Allison De Groot and Stash Wyslouch to play as a three-piece in Australia for the first time.

From Woodford the Mountain Drifters will head to Brisbane to play Lefty’s Music Hall, before stopping at the regional towns of Bellingen, Wauchope, Katoomba and Sheffield as well as Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, rounding out the tour at the Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania.
