Plan Ahead

Woodford Folk Festival is Australia's largest annual arts and music festival of its kind, gathering together more than 2,000 artists, musicians and presenters to perform across 35 venues over six huge days.

  • Tia Gostelow
  • Killing Heidi
  • Amanda Palmer
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Kasey Chambers
  • Dr Karl Kruszelnicki

Pack Your Comfy Shoes

The Festival's home, Woodfordia, has been developed into a cultural parkland dedicated to the arts, humanities and lore. The huge ground has stages, shops, a tent city, food stalls and so much more to explore over a whopping 500 acres. That's a lot of ground to cover!

Take a Note Book

As well as great bands, interactive workshops and craft displays, the festival's program boasts a number of amazing speakers across a multitude of topics. Acclaimed speakers from all over the world will impart their wisdom for festival-goers to take in.

Have an Open Mind
