Here is an intimate folk festival style event featuring the sounds of folk, world, roots, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music to be held over 3 days in the picturesque seaside town of Kiama, famous for its blowhole.
Unlike the Illawarra Folk Festival, Folk By The Sea is a smaller, more intimate featuring 6 venues, 50 acts, 120 concerts.
Performance fees are low to modest and cover expenses essentially so please do not go past this point if you have expectation of a large fee.
The festival is presented by volunteers the Illawarra Folk Club, a non-profit incorporated association. Many of these volunteers are performers themselves and are providing their effort to promote, share and enjoy folk music.
