Soldier boy What is your favorite UK folk festival? (54* d) RE: What is your favorite UK folk festival? 21 Jun 11


Whitby Folk Week is definately my personal favourite out of all the festivals I have been to but I would also champion Holmfirth Festival of Folk, Cleckheaton Folk Festival, Dentdale Music and Beer festival and the Hardraw Gatherings at The green Dragon Inn.
The Moonbeams Wold Top Summer festival is also one I want to get to but haven't been to yet.

Quite a mix there but they all tick the right boxes depending on what I am looking for.

At the end of the day we all like different things.

Some like to get a full festival ticket and sit in concerts all day whilst others may just wish to attend the occasional concert but prefer to get involved in singarounds or musician sessions on the "fringe" of a festival. So it's horses for courses, it all depends on what is 'your thing'!

A lot also depends on where you live and if you can afford to travel long distances to many of the bigger festivals anymore and also afford the full festival season ticket!
I can't, so I just go to the ones nearer to home and these are brilliant festivals in their own unique ways.

Sometimes in life you just have to 'adjust' or maybe 'downsize'!
