The annual Illawarra Folk Festival is held over three days. The size of the festival is still to be determined but will be similiar to the reduced  2023 event with 6 venues, 80 acts.

The festival does not currently have any major grants or funding and will be relying on the limited funds the Illawarra Folk Club has and ticket sales to survive.

The festival will include the sounds of folk, indie, world, roots, bluegrass, Balkan and Celtic music, as well as poetry, comedy and dance.

You can also camp onsite or stay in top quality accommodation nearby. There is plenty of onsite carparking and Bulli train station is a short walk away.

The festival commences on Friday afternoon, 4pm, and concludes on Sunday evening with a finale with special guests.

Fringe events include Folk Music School (19 January 2024), Tripe Dinner and Concert (to be confirmed) and more.

Artist’s expression of interest to perform will open in May and close 16 June 2023.
