Welcome To The Dartmoor Folk Festival

The 42nd Dartmoor Folk Festival took place on the 9th, 10th & 11th August 2019 in the village of South Zeal near Okehampton in Devon. Despite the wind and rain lots of hardy festival goers enjoyed a packed weekend of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, song and music sessions, children's festival, craft displays, folk service, Dartmoor ramble and much more.

If you didn't make it this year check out the ARTISTS page and other tabs to see what you missed.
