On Thursday 26 December, Youth Season Campers are invited to attend the opening of Dja-Mandji – a shaded hangout area for the festival’s ever-growing tribe of teens. It’s a Jinibara phrase that means “place of friends”. Sunny Coast crooners, The Dreggs, will be playing a special unplugged set, warming up the space for the festival ahead.

Whether you’re not going to make Woodford Folk Festival 2019/20 or whether you already know that you can’t get enough of this year’s incredible performers, the OM (Old Museum, Brisbane) is the OG in terms of Woodfordia’s international artists’ side shows. So, when January rolls around, before you remove that wristband, shake off the dust and your tail-feather in four days of the best of the fest just been.

In a tent in Woodford Folk Festival’s Amphitheatre, a strange child is being born. Some of the world’s leading puppet artists and a team of volunteers are putting the finishing touches on the first of a series of giant puppets, which will be the central characters in the festival’s Closing Ceremony over the next three years.

Vollies Make Our World Go Round

While our wonderful performers get the official ‘star’ billing, we save our very special applause for the quiet stars of our events – the Volunteers.

We have over 2700 folks from all over Australia and the world contributing to the creation and operation of the festival.
