The world of concerts and festivals changed in 2020, but the Auckland Folk Festival intends to return to the Kumeu Showgrounds in January 2021. The largest folk festival in New Zealand, and one of the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere, brings six stages of exceptional artists from here at home in Aotearoa.
Again we’ll be spoiled for choice as some of the best traditional and contemporary folk musicians from New Zealand come together to showcase our amazing genre.
Whatever your taste in folk music there will be something for you to savour. If you want to participate in one of the black board concerts or workshops, so much the better. If you’d rather dance the night away, then there are venues for you. And in the wee small hours don’t forget to wander round and catch some of the magic jam sessions and sing-alongs.
Food trucks will be cooking up a storm all weekend, offering up a wide range of options, along with something to quench your thirst.
Our Kids Stage and Zone is growing year by year, and the ever popular Maze will be returning. To absorb the friendly family vibe, try camping for the weekend. Immerse yourself in the centre of things, or choose a quiet camping area. And if you are not a natural camper, Kumeu is close enough to Auckland to come out each day.
