Folk Festivals to remember
Langdale Charity Folk Festival is organized in every year to support different charities. The artists will not receive any fees or expenses and those who will attend to the folk show will not have to pay for tickets either. But they are welcomed to contribute with how much they want in order to donate it for those in need. There are many other folk festivals planned all over the world, yet only some of them will remain in your memory for years.
The best folk shows in the world
Many folkie celebrations will charm your ears and fill your heart with joy. These special events gather thousands of partygoers in the same place and they will share some unforgettable moments together. If you will reach to Scotland, make sure you will not miss The Big Tent Festival. This amazing event is held every July in Fife and it is a sort of celebration of folk, art and everything that is green. You will hear debates in tents, you will watch interesting film screenings and you will really want to change something about climate change and preserve biodiversity.
Cambridge Folk Festival is a wonderful occasion to meet with a London escort. The first edition took place in 1964 and it gained a lot in popularity since then. Different, new generations are being transmitted the folk virus and they come to Cambridge Folk Festival to watch how their favourite artists will perform live on scene. Martha Wainwright and K.D. Lang are only two of the awesome folk performers who promised they will entertain the folkie atmosphere this year, in July 31 – August 4.
Head to Ireland in July and attend to Fiddlers Green Festival. Find your best transportation from London to the beautiful village of Rostrevor, where this festival show will occur, and you will not regret coming here. They celebrate the Irish culture in an amazing way, with delightful songs that will fill the valley at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in County Down. More than 200 events will take place in 8 days of folk, so get ready to have some quality time here.
But other European countries know how to folk, as well. They plan folk festivals in many other places, where folk artists and folk enthusiasts will sing and dance together for days and nights in a row. Costa Del Folk in Spain, Folk Fest- Sardinia in Italy, Fribourg International Folklore Festival in Switzerland and many other similar shows are held in countries from every continent.
Yet not all of these events are organized for charity purposes. John Shedwick Photography, The Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, Keswick Brewery and Berngates Brewery are only some of the sponsors of this folk festival in Langdale. Kev Smith, The Ale Mary’s, Bow Fell, Banter, Reckless Elbow and Jim Smith are some of the artists who announced their presence for this year’s Langdale Charity Folk Festival. Bring your own tent, book your camping site and bring your enthusiasm with you, because you will have to folk hard together with thousands of other folk lovers!
