FolkEast 2023

Folk music and art at its best, from near and far, with an added Suffolk twist from 18 - 20 August 2023

The UK's most easterly Folk & Arts festival celebrates its 11th Anniversary amongst the ancient oaks on the Glemham Hall Estate from 18 - 20 August.

The 2023 event will be played out on five stages – Sunset main stage, Moot Hall, Stage in the Woods, Sanctuary Space and the Dance Stage, while the event’s three pubs will feature sing-arounds and sessions.

Making appearances throughout the weekend will be the festival’s hugely popular ‘life enhancers’, multi-award-winning patrons, The Young ‘uns (Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle). 

Kicking things off on Friday are Ímar, whilst Saturday’s Moot Hall headliner will be Folk Radio favourite – Kathryn Tickell with her band The Darkening. Saturday will also see Scottish band Capercaillie leading the way with their dazzling traditional Gaelic and contemporary English song repertoire. 

Then playing the Sunset Stage on Sunday will be legendary Seventies folk-rockers Lindisfarne, led by original founder-member Rod Clements.

Heading over from Australia for one of only a handful of UK performances this year will be the ever-popular Spooky Men’s Chorale, led by sole Kiwi Stephen Taberner; whilst the ‘Welsh Springsteen’ Martyn Joseph will be making his first FolkEast appearance.
