    Details

    Folkstock Acoustic Festival will be an affordable, family friendly festival with a fete feel, incorporating two main stages and two tented stages of acoustic, folk and roots music. It will have internationally respected performers alongside emerging local acts as well as old fashioned stalls, ceilidhs, morris dancing, arts and crafts in a friendly supportive environment. There are also areas dedicated to specialist interests such as local breweries and real ale, foodie treats and pop up street vendors who cook to order, champions of organic and sustainable living as well as activities for children and dancing, song writing and ukulele workshops and sessions in the bar for all. Folkstock clear press welhatAs you can see, there will be an array of gorgeous music, delicious food, crafty stalls, community interest groups, dancing, singing and drinking ! Childrens’ activities and entertainment means your charges needs will be able to be accommodated ( under your watchful eye) buying you goodwill to indulge your musical tastes. The two main stages will incorporate a range of acoustic, folk and roots music, with the Main Stage being for more traditional folk performers and the other being for Alternative Folk. Alt Folk means they are slightly more cross genre and often using folk related instruments, but incorporating rock, pop, electronic and contemporary influences which are very on trend at the moment and it is immediately accessible music with strong hooks, choruses and lyrics, delivered with professionalism and passion. “The Village Green” offers a wealth of more fete like activies with the local under 10 ceilidh group taking to the turf, as well as some spontaneous Morris Dancing ! Local interest groups will be able to have a pitch at no fee to help them raise funds for their activities, and be able to keep all their proceeds. The ‘Turn up the Sun Stage’, run by talented and award winning musician Marina Florance, will be providing a stimulating and jaw dropping selection of guitar, ukulele, fiddle and double bass weilding artists who are gathering momentum and respect across the country – catch them here while you can ! The ‘Folkstock Presents’ stage is going to be offering a range of quality acoustic musicians, who are engaging and committed performers, who all write and perform their own material, to an exceptionally high level. For some of them this is their first festival but they are all experienced performers and we can’t wait to see the day unfold. There will be a supportive, inclusive atmosphere and an area for seated appreciation of the music. This tented stage will benefit from tables and chairs for people who wish to get away from the madding crowd and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake ( which will be available nearby in the Tasty Treats Tea Tent ) before heading back out into the festival’s fray. The ’Lets Co Create’ child and family friendly zone will provide a range of simple but absorbing free activites for your children to try out, under your watchful eye. There will also be some more traditional activities which will charge a small fee, such as face painting, so we can create our own little angels / spidermen ( at least for the day !) We are very lucky that artists are also coming from all over the UK, Ireland, America and Denmark to perform at the event. Come and join us and have some good clean fun !
