    The Monster Ceilidh Band is on something of a crusade to bring a powerfully modern and un-patronising approach to ceilidh music – dance music that has its feet in the heritage and tradition of the British Isles. ‘Outrageously foot-stomping tunes from this Newcastle based five-piece who mix quirky ceilidh tunes with beats and attitude. Elegant traditional playing versus raucous rave-like rhythms reveals arrangements to ignite the dance floor – Womex.

    Purbeck Folk Festival It's going to be a fantastic weekend again!! Weekend festival tickets include free camping from 12 noon on Friday 24 August to the afternoon of Monday 27 August Purbeck Folk Festival covers the broader definition of folk music and you can hear music from all around the world; some deep and meaningful, some get up and jump around. There's something for everyone's musical taste. There are three big barns, used for stages and the bar, which mean that you're dry if it rains, but there's a big grassy bank to sit on in the sunshine. Ticket prices (only £85 adults) include camping ...and what a campsite it is! Camping is now on the south side of the farm with fabulous views across Swanage Bay and the Purbeck Hills. Although there are no campfires, there is a big communal bonfire at the end of the evening. Then there is the amazing knees-up as Saturday evening hosts another barn dance. Based on a little sheep farm and in its fourth years, it’s “how festivals used to be” – friendly, great for kids and adults alike, and small enough to be able to wander around and not lose your friends. There's a tradition of giving the young ones a chance. The line-up always includes some of the best young folk artists and bands from across the vibrant national scene, some internationally known artists and the best of Dorset's local music scene. Purbeck Folk Festival is focussed on quality music and we're lucky to have a diverse audience from all different backgrounds brought together through their love of good music and everyone shares a respect for the performers which has made Purbeck the festival loved by artists and festival goers alike. The overall festival atmosphere is fantastic and this year sees Purbeck's fringe events growing with even more workshops and crafts throughout the day for adults and folk kids.
