Sidmouth Folk Festival
July 29 - August 5
Join in the celebrations for the 68th Sidmouth Folk Festival as we return in style to our stunning beach-side festival location. With a real reason to celebrate, we will be filling the seafront, streets and venues with festive atmosphere and fun, as festival goers and holiday makers join together once again for the friendliest music-based holiday of the summer.
The week-long festival offers a unique and diverse line-up of events for all – from full season ticket holders to day visitors – with major headline shows, small intimate events, dancing, singing, playing and plenty of participatory fun.
