The Port Fairy Folk Festival will return in 2022, once again taking over the Victorian coastal village (300km west of Melbourne) for four days of magnificent live music from all corners of the globe.
The first round artist announce features the local talents of Weddings, Parties, Anything, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Kee'ahn and Baby et Lulu.
They'll be joined by international stars Eric Bibb, Courtney Marie Andrews, Eilen Jewell and Mandolin Orange from the US, Scotland's Elephant Sessions and the UK's Jon Boden.
"We were ecstatic when our March Concert Series – which replaced the postponed major event this year – sold out within hours," Port Fairy Folk Festival's Program Director Justin Rudge says.
"It shows the thirst to experience live music in Port Fairy, with its extraordinary history, and the desire for audiences to return to our glorious seaside location to experience the best in music from around the world in the safest possible way.
"The positive and future-thinking response from Port Fairy Folk Festival committee, staff and contractors, as well as the close-knit creative community has been overwhelming, highlighting the township's passion to deliver world-class events and show off our seaside village in all its glory.
"We can't wait to welcome artists from around Australia and the world to Port Fairy in 2022 as things continue to improve with the pandemic.
"Announcing the Festival, a full twelve months in advance, will provide audiences – both new and established – with plenty of time to plan their Port Fairy experience." The 45th Port Fairy Folk Festival takes place 11-14 March, 2022. Tickets are now available.
