Watch the 2021 Boolarra Folk Festival online Saturday 27th February at 2pm via our Facebook page.

We are excited to announce that the 19th Boolarra Folk Festival will stream online Saturday 27th February at 2pm. To ensure the safety of our artists and community, there will be no physical event in 2021 – you can watch enjoy the music this year from the comfort of your home, or perhaps with friends and family if restrictions allow.

The Boolarra Folk Festival Facebook page will host the event. Viewers do not need to be a Facebook member to see the show, nor do they need to make bookings or get tickets to access this free show.

Simply click the Boolarra Folk Festival Facebook page link on the day. Our Facebook page will feature profiles and previews of our performers in the lead up to the show. So visit regularly and follow us for more!

Although the experience will be quite different from previous years, the fundamental purpose of the festival remains the same – to celebrate music, people and the continuity of the event in our community. The Committee is thrilled to welcome back Brian Nankervis as compère, and has selected a wonderful mix of newcomers and past festival favourites to entertain music lovers young and old. All performances have been pre-recorded exclusively for the festival by local media/arts businesses Nanoo Nanoo and Brett Van Hoorn Music, under strict Covid-safe conditions. The results are spectacular and we are extremely excited to share the show with our local audience and the wider world!

Keeping music alive during these tough times is important for our health and wellbeing, and we need to assist our communities and musicians by presenting this new approach.

We look forward to entertaining you on Saturday the 27th at 2pm!

Kind regards from the Boolarra Folk Festival Committee
