6 reasons to head to the Folk Forest Festival this weekend

For an entire weekend, you and the family can enjoy two days of sunshine (hopefully), live music and great food in the scenic locale of Endcliffe Park. Here’s what else you can expect at the Folk Forest Festival 2019…

1.) This year boasts the best line-up of live artists yet with more than forty performers across five stages. Starting first with ROY AYERS, the granddaddy of neo-soul, and it only gets better from there. Other singers include YAU, YUSSEF KAMAAL, YUSSEF DAYE and HONEYFLEET.

Roy Ayers, known for his 70s hit ‘Everybody Loves the Sunshine’, will be headlining the festival.

2.) If you have little ones, then there is always the Arts and Crafts Fair, which will be hosting a kid’s area from my Arty Party. Other activities include the New Games Workshop and the Woodland Craft.

3.) The Heritage Market and Workshop will be selling an assortment of books, clothing and memorabilia. But that’s not all, there will also be a showcase of fine craftsmanship from blacksmithing to wool working.

4.) If you have a taste for good food and, even better, good beer, then we have some news for you. This year Folk Forest is teaming up with the Stancill Brewery on Kelham Island to bring you a fine selection of craft beers, as well as street food vendors serving everything from pizza to dim sum.

There’ll be plenty to eat and drink over the weekend

5.) One of the most anticipated performances of the festival will come courtesy of Folk Festival regulars the Sheffield Beatles Project, who will be giving a performance of Abbey Road backed by a full thirty-piece orchestra!

6) The festival will be promoting a whole host of local music talent; from dreamy pop peddlers Oh Papa to alternative choir group Neighbourhood Voices.
