UK Folk Festivals

Contact UK Folk Festivals

With so many folk music festivals in the UK (not that we're complaining, of course), it's hard to keep track of them all. If there are some that we have missed, then email us the details, matching the format of those we normally display. The festival must have a website for the current festival, and not still be last year's site. This helps us check the dates and ticket prices. Then we will have a look at the site, and update our database. If there is some glaring error in the data we have about a festival, we'd be grateful if you could tell us, and point us at some web page that confirms this. Similarly, if ticket prices are marked here as TBA, and then they do get announced, do let us know!

This Basic Feature box is 250x125, or 125x250 on left of page.

A larger box of 250x250 is also available. (The one below this.)
So that's twice this size.

The space below the page header "Contact Uk Folk Festivals" is 750px wide
For only £50 per month we can fit in a 700px by 500px headline advert / image - images work best for all these adverts.

This would be a high impact advert to any site visitor, and impossible to miss. For obvious reasons we only take one such advert per page.

Any enquiries should go to

A brief note for festival organisers - please make it easy to find ticket prices and contact details. Several sites had us going round in circles searching for these details. Usability engineering is one of our specialisations, and we can offer professional help in improving your site. We also build sites from scratch at reasonable prices, ideal for small festivals who can't find a skilled volunteer.

Performers - we can build you a web site too, and at very reasonable costs. Use the above email to contact us. A professionally built web site need not cost the earth. Our current minimum fee is £330 plus a copy of your latest cd, for six pages, then £30 per page for more pages. We can also arrange your domain name and web hosting for you, at about £45 per year.

New Album Releases. We can now also take a couple of adverts, 150x250px (imagine the grey sample box above in portrait mode) for new albums, in the left hand column of a page. We are initially limiting this to up to two albums per page, but can also place adverts on the country pages, not just the home page.
