Derby Folk Festival 2018

4 - 7 October 2018

The 2018 Festival will take place from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 October 2018 – We had our “best ever festival” in 2017, and we’re planning a fantastic event once again.

2018 will be the 12th year that we’ve held the festival right in the centre of Derby.  We’re really pleased with all we have achieved – we have a great location, fabulous acts, and a super-friendly atmosphere… we’d love you to come and join us!

Weekend tickets cover Friday 5th to Sunday 7th, with Thursday 4th evening concert being an add-on event (open to all, but at a special price to weekend ticket holders!)

They’ll update Artist and Programme details as we announce things, so please keep checking back on the website.

For more news and updates, please visit our Facebook Page and Twitter Feed, where we’ll post all of the latest information – or have a look at the Derby LIVE page.
