FREE FESTIVAL

Welcome to Poole for this free folk festival on the Dorset coast.

FOLK ON THE QUAY … 2016 was the best yet!

Folk on the Quay is a FREE folk music festival in Poole on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June with five outdoor music stages, two ceilidh dances and over twenty teams of morris dancers in the streets overlooking Poole’s lovely Harbour.

 

Special thanks to Poole Tourism for their support! Without them, this festival would never happen.
It was great to have ECC Records (Lush’s music arm) on board with wonderful music from Jackie Oates Band and others. Coco & the Butterfields played a brilliant headline on the Saturday. Two bands from Canada, one from Sweden (KRABAT below playing Thistle Garden Stage) and, when we checked, 27 acts were booked on five stages across the gorgeous Quay.
