2021 FOLK BY THE SEA IS CANCELLED
STOP PRESS - 28 JULY 2021
With the announcement on 28 July 2021 by the NSW Government of the extension of the lockdown for another further 4 weeks we have had to make the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Folk by the Sea festival as it was currently planned. Even though it's 8 weeks away we believe it's too large a financial and safety risk to press on.
We are extremely disappointed and I assume you will be as well.
We're hoping, all things being equal, we can return in 23-25 September 2022.
