There is no way of predicting the course of Covid-19 over the coming months. We, as a socially-responsible organisation, have taken the decision that we cannot take the risk of running the festival this year. Therefore, it is with much regret that we have taken the decision to reschedule the 32nd Stonehaven Folk Festival to 2021. We hope to re-book all acts for next year (9th/10th/11th July 2021) and will be posting updates on Facebook and the web site plus infrequent newsletters to keep you updated.
So – see you all in 2021 when we will be back bigger and better than ever…..
Dates for 2021 : 9-11th July
2021 will be the 32nd Festival, come and help us celebrate!
Stonehaven Folk Festival was established in 1989 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
There will be a wide range of events, many free, throughout the Town over the weekend from main stage concerts in the Town Hall to informal sessions and singarounds in the pubs and around the Harbour. Musically, a wide and diverse range of traditional and contemporary “folk” music and song will be on offer featuring local and International artists. There is also a good workshop programme using performers at the festival to share their skills and knowledge.
There are of course some fun things such as the World Paper’n’Comb Championships on Saturday and the Aqua Ceilidh in the Open Air swimming pool on the Sunday morning.
Stonehaven is a picturesque harbour Town situated just 15 miles south of Aberdeen and is easily accessible by bus, rail and road.
