From the website .... An Introduction... We're proud to introduce the very first Robin Hood Folk Festival which is to be held within the grounds of Newstead Abbey Park; the ancestral home of poet Lord Byron. It will be a weekend full of top class music with an incredible lineup. There can't be a more beautiful backdrop for a festival than the one Newstead Abbey provides (see the large photo below!). This is a new, exciting and important event for Nottingham. Supported by Nottingham City Council, Castle Rock Brewery, Nottingham Post, Notts TV and other local businesses. Early Bird Tickets are now available - with options for full weekend tickets, individual day tickets, and grass camping a stones throw away from the Abbey (please don't throw stones). Please help spread the word there's a new festival in town by liking us and following us on Facebook and Twitter! We look forward to seeing you all there!

Enter into the theatrical world where circus sights dazzle bright lights to the sound of Electro-Swing. Straight in front of you is the big top, a 1920's band plays center stage while dancers jive, and the circus show is in full swing - you have arrived at Maui Waui Festival. A weekend of wonders is what's on offer at Maui Waui, with bands from all over the world, Electro Swing, Folk, Country, Gypsy Swing, Reggae and Dance music. The storytellers entertain the kids with old fables and tales, stories of giants and whales. Surprising acts wander the site on stilts and bikes and some wearing tights, impromptu bands play throughout the day and as night time falls the entertainment livens up, the Mydy Rabycad are going to play - A six piece Electro Swing troupe that fuses cool 20’s swing with ‑ery electro beats in a dazzling live show. Fronted by the sassy Sisters of Swing with the addition of live drums, fretless bass, gyspy jazz guitar, keys synths and swinging samples. Mydy Rabycad hotfoots it through their own unique blend of Electro Swing.Tickets Save

Bio: Meet a bunch of classically trained washboard & kazoo players, once described eloquently as, 'Hillbillies with mobile phones'. Hailing from the green hills and valleys of 'Lawrence county' ... some say, these folks have spent too long in the woods drinking moonshine!
