Welcome To The Dartmoor Folk Festival

Plans are under way for the 43rd Dartmoor Folk Festival on the 7th, 8th & 9th August 2020 in the village of South Zeal near Okehampton in Devon. We're planning another exciting packed weekend of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, song and music sessions, children's festival, craft displays, folk service, Dartmoor ramble and much more. Check out the ARTISTS page and other tabs.

We are aware that everyone will have concerns over the Coronavirus, and in view of the current situation we want to let you know what our plans are for this year's event. The festival is still four months away and we continue to hope that it can take place as planned.  However, the health and safety of everyone involved is of course our top priority.  We are keeping a close eye on the situation, speaking to our stakeholders, and taking all appropriate official advice and guidance.  In the event of a cancellation, full refunds will be given on any tickets already purchased.
We send our best wishes to you all, please stay safe, and further updates will be issued in due course.

Festival favourite Rob Pudner of ‘Entertaingly Different’ will be hosting his ‘Rise & Shine’ live from his back garden on Easter Saturday, 9.30am. Reached over 30,000 people last time. Let’s see if we can cast the net even wider. https://www.facebook.com/263235713793672/posts/2733626033421282/

Also keep an eye on our social media feeds for updates. Facebook, Twitter - @dartmoorfolk and Instagram - dartmoorfolkfestival.media

Please don't forget that DOGS are not permitted at any festival venue including the recreation ground. (terms and conditions of the venues that we hire) They are welcome on the festival campsite on a lead.
