Cygnet Folk Festival
From the 6th - 8th of January 2017 the small town of Cygnet will again play host to the annual Cygnet Folk Festival. This year will be the 35th Cygnet Folk Festival, one of Australia’s most iconic folk music festivals. The festival is very highly regarded by musicians and festival-goers from all over Australia and overseas, and competition to come to Cygnet is at an all time high among performers!
Musicians and volunteers plan their annual holidays around coming to Cygnet in January each year and many come from interstate and overseas especially to be part of this wonderful event. The incredible talent of local and visiting musicians is celebrated over the January weekend and we are proud that so many amazing performers and festival goers take part in what the Festival has to offer each year.
The Festival attracts thousands of visitors every year. A rich cultural community event, the Festival provides entertainment to a wide audience of Festival attendees, making people smile, providing opportunities and a springboard for young musicians, opportunities for local businesses, and new friendships.
