Sydney Folk Festival is back at last – with a world of music in the heart of the city!

Launched in 2019 to great acclaim – with an online version in 2020 and cancelled in 2021, both due to COVID –this 3-day event featuring 35+ acts in two Surry Hills festival hubs – returns to Sydney with its electrifying brand of urban folk.

Whether you like your folk big and rowdy or simple and spare, a soulful, solo singer expressing big ideas or a whirling outfit playing up a storm,you’ll be spoilt for choice from 19-21 August in the Sydney CBD!

The NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre, 37 Reservoir St will provide two concert venues plus presentation and workshop spaces while the Gaelic Club, 1/64 Devonshire St, will host a range of concerts throughout the weekend.
Each are within 700m of the other, and both just a short walk from Central Station.

Early-bird tickets are on sale now at and organisers have
already announced a slew of artists to capture the imagination… and set the pulse racing!


Headlining the all-star line-up (above L-R) are award-winning trans-Tasman duo We Mavericks, Fred Smith and his band, Queensland’s Penny Davies & Roger Ilott, along with the Miriam Lieberman Trio,
high-energy, four-piece Australian Celtic outfit Austral and Victorian singer-songwriter Michael Waugh.

Latest addition to the program is exciting Indie folk singer-songwriter Kim Yang.
Kim writes songs that speak from her experiences as partner, daughter, traveller and insecure soul.
Her ethereal blend of sounds balances delicately between vulnerability and power… she’s sure to steal your heart!

A special focus of SydFolkFest22 will be a celebration of the creativity and diversity of folk arts and artists from across NSW
and it will open with a unique Indigenous acknowledgement and cultural immersion.
Plus world music / multicultural folk in focus!
