FOLK by the SEA is a new intimate folk festival style event featuring the sounds of folk, world, roots, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music over 3 days in the picturesque seaside town of Kiama, famous for its blowhole. This event replaces Folk in the Foothills which was held at the Jamberoo Valley Lodge.

The event is a combination of ticket only entry (Friday and Saturday) featuring 25 artists from around Australia at Kiama Showground and a free day of local folk artists on the Sunday in Hindmarsh Park.

There will be 5 venues at/near Kiama Showground for the Friday and Saturday events. Camping is available at the showground as well other quality accommodation in and around Kiama. Click here to view the 2013 program.

The festival is presented by volunteers from the Illawarra Folk Club Inc. who present regular folk music concerts in the Illawarra region and the world famous Illawarra Folk Festival.
