FOLKEAST 17 -19  AUGUST 2018

“One of the best world music, roots and folk festivals in the UK for 2016.” Imogen Tilden, The Guardian.

“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.” Jeremy Searle, R2 Magazine.
