No more waiting – the 2019 Orkney Folk Festival programme is now available to view. Right here!
The 37th festival programme comprises 36 concerts over four days, featuring some 52 artists from as far as Cuba and Cape Breton Island, as well as a very healthy contingent from Orkney’s own thriving folk scene. Old favourites are back, and newcomers – from home and away – make their debut appearances. It’s another bumper programme, and slightly reformatted to a more comprehensive festival guide: take a look!
We’ve a couple of major changes in 2019. The Festival Club is moving to a new, bigger, and largely custom-built home in the Stromness Community Centre (though not as you’ve ever seen it before…). Alongside, we now have three Farewell Concerts – hopefully satisfying demand for Sunday night tickets a wee bit better.
Dive in – have a look – it’s all here. Tickets go on advance sale to Festival Patrons on Saturday 13 April, and on general release a week later on Saturday 20 April.
Patronage can be bought up to April 6 – giving discounts on travel to Orkney with NorthLink Ferries, and festival merchandise, as well as early access to tickets.
