About the Illawarra Folk Festival
New South Wales’ biggest and most diverse folk festival is on again in January 2013.
For four days from January 17-20 the Bulli Showgrounds will be home to the 28th annual Illawarra Folk Festival – with its sensational line-up of folk, world, acoustic, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music, as well as poetry, dances, workshops, parades and sessions.
Over 150 international, national and local acts with 600 performers will turn the showgrounds in the musical epicentre of NSW for four days.
If you haven’t been to the Illawarra Folk Festival before, January is the perfect time to get acquainted with this fabulous festival presented by the Illawarra Folk Club.
The festival’s home is Bulli Showground, nestled under the spectacular Illawarra escarpment and just a few minutes from Bulli Beach.
The festival site is an all-weather venue with 12 covered stages, lots of onsite parking and camping.
And it’s only an hour from Sydney and easily accessible by train, on one of the most spectacular coastal train journeys in Australia.
So the Illawarra Folk Festival provides a perfect opportunity for Sydney-based travellers to come by train and experience the true spirit of Down Under, listen to great music from Australia and around the world, meet the locals and maybe visit the stunning beaches of the region.
