Thank you to everyone who sang, danced, laughed, ate, drank, slept, worked and played. What a beautiful weekend we had. We look forward to seeing all you next year.
17th, 18th and 19th August 2018
Thank you to The Guardian Festival Guide for putting us in the 10 Best Folk, Roots, World and Acoustic festivals to enjoy in 2017
FolkEast feels more like a very English village fete than a festival, with the good humour and unpretentiousness of its patrons, the Young’uns, the guiding vibe.
“One of the best world music, roots and folk festivals in the UK for 2016.”
“The organisers of FolkEast deserve big praise for putting together one of the quirkiest, most enjoyable festival sites and programmes of the year..”
“There was nothing to top FolkEast. Suffused with good vibrations, quirky, charming, and possessed of a joie de vivre that even Sunday’s rain couldn’t dampen, this was a festival that got almost everything right.”
“FolkEast is more than just a festival – it’s out to nourish our roots … to restore bridges with the past… and make them truly accessible for the future”
“It feels like something that has been here since the Middle Ages”
“One of my very, very favourite festivals” “Can’t wait – I love this festival”
“FolkEast has become one of those amazing, unique festivals”
On the 17th May , Print to the People took on their biggest challenge yet – to print the FolkEast Poster with a 10 tonne steam roller at the official 2017 Festival Launch held at The Longshop in Leiston.
