Add Derby Folk Festival to your Itinerary

Derby Folk Festival is delighted to return to the live stage in 2021 in the heart of the city centre

About

Last year’s event was hosted at home as live concerts could not go ahead due to the pandemic. Instead, online performances especially recorded for the festival by Derby LIVE’s technical team, drew audiences from around the world, along with an extensive Festival Fringe on Facebook.

Now many of the artists who had planned to be in Derby last year are preparing to return in the autumn, optimistic that live shows can once more draw Folk enthusiasts back into the city. 

Now in its 15th year this will be the chance to get together again and it's going to be extra special this time.

A number of artists who were due to perform in 2020, but were unable to be part of the ‘At Home’ event, will be returning for 2021, along with past favourites and familiar faces who will once again be able to play with a full band.

Highlights include: 

Home Service

O’Hooley & Tidow

Kitty Macfarlane

India Electric Co. 

Ninebarrow

There will be a host of other names, both familiar and upcoming, announced over the coming weeks and months, in a range of concerts and other events taking place over the festival weekend. The Mick Peat Stage will be the Market Place marquee, keeping the festival embedded in the city centre; Derby Cathedral will host concerts during Saturday, and The Old Bell Hotel will be a hub of activity with fringe events and more.
