2020 Line-up – An Overview

The 2021 Festival will, as far as possible be based on the planned 2020 event so we will leave the programme details available here until the plans for 2021 are finalised.

A quick look at The Sidmouth Folk Festival line up really shows the unique and broad appeal of the week long festival based in the Seaside town of Sidmouth. Whether you pop in for the day or stay for the whole week this festival really has something for everyone from smaller intimate shows to bigger concert size performances.
