DFF Panorama Welcome page

Thank you to everyone who came to the 2013 Derby Folk Festival – we had an amazing time, and we hope you did too!

Our next festival will take place from

Friday 3 October to Sunday 5 October 2014.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Tickets are now on sale, and as you’ll see on these pages, the line up is being released, with more to be added – so please keep checking back as the website will be changing often… or take a look at our Facebook Page, or Twitter Feed, where we have more regular updates.
