I like Traditional British and European stuff, as well as more innovative contemporary folk, especially with a good bit of dancing.

I am already going to Dart-ee-moor festival in Sticklepath.

Any other ideas?

As far as I know, the Dartmoor
festival is in South Zeal.... (admittedly a shortish walk from Sticklepath).

There's also After the fair at Bampton in October.

Bideford didn't run last year AFAIK.
Pennymore Singaround but it does sell out so check.
TivvyFest is a month long.

Oh - just lookyou here and select a month.

I don't list in Cornwall so look for Folknews Kernow in my list of listing sites

There is a Celtic/Kernak festival sometime - pricipally Celtic music with the emphasis on Kernow.

Mr Red - but Bideford is back this year!

Pennymoor Song & Ale doesn't have dancing, apart from a workshop with Sue the Borderer.

Sidmouth FolkWeek has lots of traditional British stuff, absolutely loads of dancing (display/morris, ceilidh and social), and some superb European artists like Nidi D'Arac from Italy and Galician piper Anxo Lorenzo. There is also contemporary folk from the likes of Scotland's The Unusual Suspects and The Chair, and concerts from mainstream headliners like Kate Rusby, Dougie MacLean and Show of Hands.


To be honest there's too much to talk about in a single post here, but have a look at the website:

Yes, Bideford is most definitely back this year - shorter and a bit smaller, but still lots on.

Camping will be on a different site - on flat ground within easy walking reach of the town centre. Available from Thursday afternoon 11th August; there some events Thursday evening then a full programme from Friday morning to Sunday evening.

If you don't want to go to the concerts, but you want to use the campsite there's a special rate ticket which will get you into a limited range of things and let you buy a campsite ticket. For futher details see the Bideford Folk Festival website.

So, Floksnog, you could start at Sidmouth, go from there to South Zeal and then wend your way northwards to Bideford!

If you're in Cornwall at the beginning of May there's Padstow's Mayday with the Obby Oss and a week later it's Furry Day in Helston, both genuine traditional music festivals.
Not sure which day it'll be happening this year because Mayday (1st) falls on a Sunday and so does Furry day - 8th.

There maybe something to your taste in the Tiverton Festival in May or the Bradninch Festival in June.
