No matter what happens, remember it’s an adventureBE KIND: to each other, to the artists, to the staff, and mostly to the large number of volunteers who make the festival happen.BE PRESENT: We’re all coming to a speck of land in the sea to commune around music. Everything else is secondary.NO EXPECTATIONS: We’re all nervous & excited, but the only certainty is that what we expect will happen, probably won’t. That’s why it’s fun.SAFTEY IS SACROSANCT: We take this part VERY seriously. In case of weather/ emergency we may make hard decisions, but safety is paramount. ALWAYS.LIVE MUSIC: Let’s face it, it’s what it’s all about. It’s our therapy, our inspiration, our coffee, our muse, our passion. And we are incredibly fortunate for the chance to share in it, together, for 3 full days.We are counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds until we see you, our extended Folk Family, until then…- Folk On

Folk: It’s that time of year again; the one week countdown is upon us. So here’s our annual reminder of what we can all do to prepare and ensure it’s one for the ages.

BE PREPARED FOR ALL WEATHER: Believe us it’ll change drastically throughout the weekend. No matter what happens, remember it’s an adventure

BE KIND: to each other, to the artists, to the staff, and mostly to the large number of volunteers who make the festival happen.

BE PRESENT: We’re all coming to a speck of land in the sea to commune around music. Everything else is secondary.

NO EXPECTATIONS: We’re all nervous & excited, but the only certainty is that what we expect will happen, probably won’t. That’s why it’s fun.

SAFTEY IS SACROSANCT: We take this part VERY seriously. In case of weather/ emergency we may make hard decisions, but safety is paramount. ALWAYS.

LIVE MUSIC: Let’s face it, it’s what it’s all about. It’s our therapy, our inspiration, our coffee, our muse, our passion. And we are incredibly fortunate for the chance to share in it, together, for 3 full days.

We are counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds until we see you, our extended Folk Family, until then…
