FUTURE FOLK APPLICATIONS OPEN  

Have you ever dreamt of playing at the Folkie?

Following on from the success of last year’s pilot program, Future Folk is back to support young emerging artists and performers from south west Victoria.

Supported by Moyne Shire Council through the Victorian Government’s FReeZA program, Future Folk gives participants aged between 12-25 a paid opportunity to share their music in front of a festival audience at Port Fairy. Plus they will have mentoring sessions with established artists who are performing at the Folkie. 

If you or someone you know would love a chance to be a part of the 2023 Port Fairy Folk Festival Future Folk program, and gain invaluable experience and skills.
