One of the most crucial sources of income in keeping the festival going is the invaluable support from individual Festival Patrons – just like you! Whether you are a regular attendee or a first-timer, you can become a Patron or join the year-round Patron Plus scheme – both of which not only assist the festival enormously, but also entitle you to great benefits in return.

Patronage for the 2022 Orkney Folk Festival will be on sale very soon. Further information will be shared in due course.

Thank you for supporting the festival.

Patron Plus

On top of Festival Patronage, we have an additional tier of support – the year-round Patron Plus scheme.

For a monthly direct debit of at least £5, Patron Plus members are entered into a draw which pays out half the total cash value collected from the scheme that month (currently £250), with the other half going directly to benefitting the festival. A contribution of £5 per month (£60 per annum) gives the participant one number in the monthly draw, £10 gives two, and so on.

Members of Patron Plus also receive the usual benefits of festival Patronage:

  • priority ticket access
    Patrons may purchase two adult tickets per event, per patronage, plus unlimited children’s tickets.
  • 10% off festival merchandise
    Orkney Folk Festival merchandise only. Tickets and artist merchandise not included.

To register for Patron Plus, we must take a few details from you in order to set up a direct debit. If you would like to find our more, or sign up, please email us at
