Artist Home Host Accommodation

In order to keep accommodation costs for performers to a minimum the Festival utilises home host accommodation provided by the local community. It's a great way to help the festival, meet interesting performers and to get some free Season Passes and complimentary vouchers to use at the festival! We expect you to provide a continental breakfast for them.


Artists for the 2021 Folkby the Sea will be by invitation, ie applications will not be open.


Applications for the 2021 event will open in July. Check here for the link.
