Covid-19 has forced all of us to change our plans in 2021.  The good news is that our festival will go ahead, online, in order to keep our artists and community safe.

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. Pre-recorded, the festival will be streamed via Facebook.  We invite people to enjoy the music this year from the comfort of their homes, 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 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 have a very special show to share with you. 

We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
