Who's Festival listing would you recommend.
I long had a Folk and Roots button on my browser but that refused one day so I've been using UK Folk Festivals. Now that's barred (Couldn't connect to server becauseThe server requested authentication method unknown to the client)

People are forever telling me they've been to festivals I've not heard of. Who does the best list

I also got that authentication message. The link below it on my Google page appears to work:

I put Folk Festivals into a search engine and found the one you mentioned. I also found an EFDSS site

https://www.efdss.org/whats-on/folk-festivals-2017

which seems ok but does not have links to some actual festival web sites.

others I've seen

Worldwide Club & Festival map by Chris Rust 
www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zFcKphOvGxXU.kaygq-TxL-oI&z=8&ll=52.8%2C-2.1  
(if it gives you the option, open it in the browser, not 'maps')
You'll need to change the layer displayed from clubs to festivals.

+ info about it

Well here's a thing UK Folk Festivals is coming up again. Looks like the robots sorted themselves out. Thanks all.

Mr Red's map will find festivals wherever you click on the map, providing there is a purple dot near enough. Moving out of my chosen domain there are lists that pop-up relevant to the location of the cursor. Some of those listers may include, or even run, Festivals. My festival page is chronological. The info is the same.

And yes it is up to date if the dates are this year. If not - the festival may have rested or not survived or late in posting. I put dates I find because some webmeisters are so neat they put dates in their filenames - links don't work next year (or month yet!). mutter, mutter..............

If there is any doubt about Trowbridge - there is definitely a "Priming the Pump" festival in that area. Perhaps more modest but it looks to be run by some of the same willing.

I use the one linked from fRoots on occasions, but their concept of what is (say) East or West Midlands may differ from yours, you end up opening multiple tabs to cover the divisions. Hence my map/radius solution.

Mr Red's Festival listings a couple of updates, Minehead Musicians Festival - have asked in March and just but have no firm answers. Anything else that isn't listed as this year probably isn't running this year.

Well, I go to "www.ukfolkfestivals.co.uk"
then click on "The Big List" - works for me.

Very up to date so far as I can see

Having looked at all those above, and more, I concur with jojofolkagogo - 
"www.ukfolkfestivals.co.uk"

gives the most festivals and is easiest to follow.
http://www.ukfolkfestivals.co.uk/england.php#May 
the "Big List" gives everything but you can filter that by
\ Scotland \ England \ Ireland \ Wales

Living Tradition
gives nearly as many but I found harder to read
- the whole UK, by date
http://www.livingtradition.co.uk/festivals/festival-listing  

This year fRoots is linking to the Spiral Earth site which hasn't been updated from 2017.
http://www.frootsmag.com/content/festivals/ 


The Festival Calendar
lists about 25%
https://www.thefestivalcalendar.co.uk/country-folk-festivals.ph 


efdss
has about 50% but might be better focused for some?

The Scottish TMSA one only includes those who have paid to advertise in it, so does not cover absolutely all festivals.

Imam reliably informed that fRoots IS showing 2018 festivals in the paper version just published.

all at mister.red festivals (SW England & de Ddywrain Cymru) is as up to date as of March 1st - least ways those that have websites and have updated with 2018 info.

eg there will probably be a Gwyl Ifan in Cardiff but IME their info is usually JIT (just in time)

map.mister.red gives a clearer picture if you are limiting yourself to a locality. Though it includes Clubs and sessions. Click in the area of interest and see what it shows.

As I always say "let me know if you have specific knowledge and can update me"
