The Auckland Folk Festival runs over the three days of Auckland Anniversary Weekend in late January. In 2017 this will be Friday January 27th until Monday 30th . You will find a wide range of folk music, from contemporary through bluegrass, Irish and traditional. Guest artists are invited from all over the world, with both local and international musicians offering workshops and participating in all night jam sessions.
We recommend you bring your tent and camp up for the whole weekend as some of the magical moments of the Festival occur after the programme ends. Stay tuned as we announce our outstanding guests across October! You can follow us on Facebook here, for all the most up to date information.
