Woodford Folk Festival 2011/2012 Line-up

Written by John Ritchie on October 22, 2011

The Woodford Folk Festival 2011/2012 programme was launched tonight at Woodfordia (the festival site) in a ceremony for 250 enthusiastic organisers.

Last year Woodford suffered a blow when the Queensland floods caused a number of potential ticket buyers to boycott the festival due to road blockages and the possibility that the festival would be called off.

Speaking at the event, Festival Director Bill Hauritz said:

While it’s been a challenging year emerging from the floods, there have been some tremendous outcomes, among them, Woodfordia (the festival site) is in better shape than it’s ever been. This year our loyal patrons will be rewarded with the strongest cultural event to date and many positive changes.

While the world seems to be in a bad news cycle, the programme reflects a positive way forward and a celebration of humanity. It’s only with positive affirmations that our festival, communities and nation can move forward.

Woodford’s programme this year features The Dreaming Festival. Together, the event features 400 acts performing on 20 stages over the six days and nights.
