Australia's Largest Folk Music Festival

If you love music, then put this in your diary now! The annual Illawarra Folk Festival is celebrating 32 years of presenting live music. The Festival will run over four fun-filled summer days. Get set for the best folk, world, roots, bluegrass, gypsy and Celtic music you can hear live in NSW. Not only music, but live poetry readings, comedy acts and of course, endless dancing.
