Folk by the Sea Festival


FOLK by the SEA is an intimate folk festival featuring the sounds of folk, world, roots, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music over 3 days in the picturesque seaside town of Kiama, famous for its blowhole. Now in its 7th year at Kiama, this event replaced Folk in the Foothills which was held at the Jamberoo Valley Lodge.

The event is a ticket only entry (Friday and Saturday and Sunday) featuring artists from overseas and all around Australia in 100 concerts at Kiama Showground environs, the Kiama Showground Pavillion and Kiama Bowling Club.

There will be 9 venues at and near Kiama Showground for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday events. Limited camping is available (only with the festival pass) at the showground as well as other quality accommodation in and around Kiama.

Early Bird three-day tickets are on sale now for $90 on the festival website or by calling 1300 887034.

The festival is presented by the Illawarra Folk Club, with support from Kiama Municipal Council and Destination Kiama.
