2017 Folk by the Sea Artists Announced

FOLK by the SEA is an intimate folk festival style event featuring the sounds of folk, world, roots, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music over 3 days in the picturesque seaside town of Kiama, famous for its blowhole. This event replaces Folk in the Foothills which was held at the Jamberoo Valley Lodge.

The event is a combination of ticket only entry (Friday and Saturday) featuring 45 artists from overseas and all around Australia in 100 concerts at Kiama Showground and a free day of local folk artists on the Sunday in Hindmarsh Park and other locations around Kiama.
