Welcome to Tour De Filey Folk Festival !

Yes, its finally arrived, Tour de Yorkshire is passing through Filey Folk Festival on Saturday 5th May 2018. So expect a fine array of 'Boneshakers' & 'Penny Farthings' hurtling at high speed through the narrow streets, knocking over drunken folk singers as they go ! Hoorah, I hear you say ! FILEY FOLK FESTIVAL is one of the mainstays of this North Yorkshire seaside town's musical year. Expect a broad range in styles of folk, blues, country and acoustic performers and bands, and a very warm welcome and a famously friendly atmosphere. You can catch well over 100 acts performing live at the participating venues and perhaps also busking around town. Pub/Café/Restaurant gigs run all weekend and admission is FREE for everyone.

There are also pay on the door/ticketed evening concerts at the EVRON CENTRE CONCERT HALL, plus the unique listening atmosphere of daytime and evening shows at the MASONIC HALL.  Prices are fairly nominal and vary anything from £3 for daytime shows to £10 for evening concerts.

An Extra Day Added To The Festival !

Due to growing popularity of the folk festival, bank holiday Monday will now be the official 'survivors' day. There will also be a 'grand finale' concert held at the Evron Centre on the Monday night.

This web space will provide updates and programme announcements as we head towards the 2018 festival. Simply click on the links to the venues on the left of each page to see the schedule for that venue.

Applications To Perform At The Festival

Its simple ! Just click on a venue you want to play at in the left hand column, and on the venue page you will find a contact name & email address or phone number of the STAGE ORGANISER.  Generally, bookings don't usually start until end of October time at the earliest.
