Get your tickets for the 2018 Cygnet Folk Festival before they sell out

Only five weeks to go until our favourite weekend in January! The 2018 Cygnet Folk Festival will be the 36th festival: such longevity is in itself worth celebrating!!

As always we have a fabulous lineup of performers from allover this wonderful world. There will be music, dance, spoken word and poetry, circus, comedy and cabaret, a full weekend of kids performances and activities, workshops and sessions and instruments on display: and of course great local food and drink to keep up your energy for a weekend of fun!

For 2018 we welcome performers from the USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Sicily, England, Ireland, Serbia Japan and New Zealand as well as most Australian states and territories, including fabulous musical talent from allover Tasmania.


The festival will once again kick off with our Friday masterclass series from 11am.

In 2018 our masterclass presenters are the legendary Bruce Molskey teaching Bluegrass Fiddle, Simone Pope, arguably Australia’s leading exponent and teacher of Flamenco dance, we welcome back Irish Joe Lynch with a brand new take on storytelling techniques and hints, APRA award winning songwriter Charles Jenkins will run a songwriting masterclass and Canadian Teresa Doyle will present the Yoga of Sound.

All masterclasses will be limited in size, so for $55 you get four hours of up close tuition with some of the finest!
