Virtually Orkney Folk Festival 2021: Thank You!

Well there we go… thank you everyone! 

Needless to say this year’s weekend has been a peedie bit different – again. Whilst we cannot wait to get back to doing the real thing in person, one upside of this year’s festival has been that the committee has been able to sit back, relax and enjoy the festival alongside the thousands of you that tuned in over the weekend, from all over the world, and it’s been so heartening to read everyone’s comments over the weekend.

It’s not the same, but we hope that this year’s Virtually Orkney Folk Festival has brought you that bit closer over the last few days – whether that’s to live music, Orkney or each other.

A massive thanks once again to our supporters: Orkney Islands Council, EventScotland, Creative Scotland, and NorthLink Ferries, as well as our many sponsors – without whom, this year’s festival simply could not have happened.

Thanks also to all of our artists and tech crews, who have all had the most challenging of years and continue to knock it out of the park – and of course to all of YOU for supporting the festival and live music.

We can’t wait to do it all in person, so please join us in crossing everything that next year that will be the case.

May 26-29, 2022 – see you HERE (hopefully)!

All the best, from everyone at Orkney Folk Festival.
