Cygnet Folk Festival

10 January @ 8:00 am 12 January @ 10:00 pm

From the 10th – 12th of January 2020 the small town of Cygnet will again play host to the annual Cygnet Folk Festival. This year will be the 38th Cygnet Folk Festival, one of Australia’s most iconic folk music festivals. Very highly regarded by musicians and festival-goers from all over Australia and overseas, competition to come to Cygnet is at an all time high amongst performers, and last year we had a record number of applications! The Festival is a showcase of eclectic music genres featuring both local and international talent, dance, poetry, masterclasses, film, kids’ entertainment, food, wine, art and local handicrafts all set in the breathtaking scenery of Tasmania’s Huon Valley. Musicians and volunteers plan their annual holidays around coming to Cygnet in January each year and many come from interstate and overseas  to be part of this wonderful event. The incredible talent of local and visiting musicians is celebrated over the January weekend and we are proud that so many amazing performers and festival-goers take part in what the Festival has to offer each year. The Cygnet Folk Festival began in 1982 and is a not-for-profit community event organised by a volunteer management committee (Huon Folk Inc). Cygnet has a population of less than 1,600 people and for such a small community, the Festival is impressive in its size, scope and quality. The Festival attracts thousands of visitors every year. A rich cultural community event, the Festival provides entertainment to a wide audience of Festival attendees, making people smile, providing opportunities and a springboard for young musicians, opportunities for local businesses, and new friendships. Cygnet 2020 features Siobhan Miller, Elephant Sessions and Brigdhe Chaimbeul.
