Our next festival programme will be published in spring 2022.

Whilst we do not yet know exactly how our festival will need to operate, around any ongoing covid restrictions, our 2019 festival programme can be viewed here. We must stress that this should be used as a guide only -once we are able to return to a live festival, venues and host communities will change (as they do every year); however we hope that the overall scope of the programme will be of a similar scale – health and safety guidelines at the time permitting.

You can also check out our 2021 Virtually Orkney Folk Festival programme here. Building upon our free Big Lockdown Special in 2020, where we screened archive footage over the festival weekend, in 2021 we staged a fully online festival, with brand new footage from over 30 artists in 10 concerts.
