Woodford Folk Festival 2015/2016 Lineup Announced

The extensive lineup for the 30th Woodford Folk Festival has arrived, boasting the likes of the homegrown superstar Courtney Barnett, American singer song-writer Michael Franti and an avalanche more.

Other acts who are set to perform at Woodford Folk Festival’s New Year’s celebrations include San Cisco, San Cisco, Lanie Lane, Dougie Maclean and the Paul McKenna Band. Catch the full lineup, below.

This year’s Woodford acts will be hitting up the festival’s 35 performance venues at its beloved Woodfordia site, an hour’s drive northwest of Brisbane.

As always, this year’s event will feature music, dance, cabaret, circus, comedy, workshops, debate, street theatre, films, forums, visual arts, and even an entire festival just for the kids. There’s also a spectacular fire event planned for New Year’s Day.

As is tradition, the festival’s stunningly detailed poster has also been unveiled. View the poster in all its glory, below.

Last year’s Woodford Folk Festival hosted acts like US rockers Violent Femmes, Sydney’s very own Sticky Fingers and fellow Aussies Lior, Hiatus Kaiyote, Bertie Blackman, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Cairos and The Cat Empire.
