Non-Stop Music at the FAR Stage

FAR = Folk, Acoustic, Roots

With 27 performers from Cornwall and the South-West, plus a bar, some great food options and guaranteed good weather (well, guaranteed Cornish weather, anyway), the Cornwall Folk Festival FAR Stage is the place to hang out during the day.

MC’ed by Steve Appleby, and our poet-in-residence Rob Barrett.

Actually, no need to worry about the weather — this year we’ve invested in some cover, in case of rain or too much sunshine (as happened in 2017 and we hope will repeat this year).

You’ll find it in the car park at the back of Wadebridge Wines, on Eddystone Road, just around the corner from the town’s medieval bridge and Shanty St.

The FAR stage runs from Saturday to Monday from 11.30, with events finishing around 7pm, in time for you to get to main stage concerts or sessions around town.

Each acts gets 30 minutes, and the next act will be on within 15 minutes of the last, so it’s back-to-back artists from across Cornwall, the South West and some from further afield. You may even find some of our headline acts playing a slot.

Tickets will be available online later in the year. Entry is included with the full festival ticket and day tickets. You can also buy on the door.

  • £5 per person per day
  • £8 per day for the whole family

You are welcome to come and go as you please.

There are no upcoming events at this time.

On Sunday morning there will be a ‘folk mass’ for people of all faiths and no faith, giving us a mid-festival blessing.
