Dorrigo festival DORRIGO FOLK AND BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL

27th 28th 29th October 2017

Come celebrate 16 years of Festivities with us, there is still time to book your tickets
and start planning your weekend on the Dorrigo mountain, five hours drive South of Brisbane.

This year we again have a stellar line-up of performers.

One of Dorrigos priorities has always been to provide a family friendly weekend, so our festival is a smoke, drug and alcohol free event. A perfect chance to escape from the pace of todays life and immerse yourself in a weekend full of music and song from the toe-tapping to the sublime.

And this year we are trying to do our part by having manned rubbish stations on site, we will be encouraging our patrons and all on site to be responsible with their rubbish.

Find out lots more by visiting the website at

Ticket sales are online for our Woodford Folk Festival. We encourage you, more than ever, to pre-purchase tickets and pick up the early bird ticket savings. Get in early to secure your tickets at the best possible price.

Because of our growing popularity, we’ve made big changes that you need to know about. We’ve summarised these here but you can click on the links shown for a deeper narrative on these changes.

To protect our festival’s comfort levels and beautiful spirit, we are capping all tickets to the festival. The New Year’s Eve cap will be set at the same attendance as last year.

All tickets must now be purchased online - even day passes during the festival. Tickets will NOT be available for purchase at the festival gates.

Tickets are more expensive this year. It has to happen.

Everyone with vehicles will now need to buy a vehicle pass. This aims to free up shaded camping space and reduce traffic volume.
