WoW!!! It’s less than 5 weeks till the 2018 Yackandandah Folk Festival kicks off in earnest and we’re starting to get a little bit excited. Our program will be finalised shortly and up on here for you to peruse so you can begin planning who you’d like to go and see.
Our new T-shirts are currently being printed and should be available soon.
After a fairly exhaustive search, we have secured a new location for our “Youth Shed” right in the heart of the shopping district. The old venue has been taken over by The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, who’ll no doubt be demonstrating some of their skills around town during the weekend.
Once again, we will be holding a Bush Dance immediately following the Opening Parade, which begins at the more normal time of 6.30pm Friday evening and features a local brass band leading the procession in the main street.
Speaking of the main street of Yackandandah- this year, it will be closed to through traffic in it’s entirety for the duration of YFF. This will enhance the strong village feel of the festival and allow families to walk between all venues in complete safety.
Ticket sales continue to be strong but don’t despair-there’s still plenty of time to purchase your tickets and book your spot at one of our two terrific camping grounds.
WoW! This year’s festival will once again punch well above its weight value-wise. The overseas contingent of performers is once again as diverse as it is big. Included herein are some bios and photos of our talented bunch for your perusal so you can start planning who you’d like to see in 2018.

2018 YFF T-shirts will be available soon.
