We’re excited about the mix brought by this varied lineup of local Kiwi talent and are looking forward to a festival every bit as good as last year. There is a mix of real tradition with contemporary writers and interpreters of several strands of our indigenous and imported folk traditions.

If we are at Alert level 2 in October, all this planning may be lost but at this stage we’re carrying on regardless!! As usual, ticket sales will open in early August (if we have to cancel the festival at any state, we will provide full refunds).
