Moseley Folk may be one of the lesser-known events on the UK festival scene, but that only adds to its charm. Set in a private park with a capacity for just 3,000 people, it’s one of the most intimate musical events of the summer. It’s a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere with colourful pennants streaming between the trees, and quirky tents gathered around the seating areas. Moseley Park is perfect for a chilled-out end to the summer.
Hosting some incredible jazz, funk and soul acts, Moseley Folk has managed to maintain its special something, despite attracting big names in the past such as The Coral, The Proclaimers and 60’s pop icons The Monkees. The carnival spirit of the festival is as much about art and culture as music, with artisan foods on offer like roast pig, falafels, crepes and award-winning Thai and Carribean delicacies.
On Friday 1st September, Moseley Folk Festival will be home to Scottish songstress Amy Macdonald, who will be performing tracks from new album ‘Under Stars’ as well as classics from three-million-selling debut ‘This is the Life’. Also on the Friday is the return of The Magic Numbers and Arizonan singer/songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews.
Saturday 2nd September will see Jose Gonzalez headlining with his new record ‘Vestiges & Claws’, his first in seven years. Also playing are award-winning South Carolina duo Shovels and Rope, and veteran British songwriter and guitarist Michael Chapman.
On the final day of the festival, Sunday 3rd September, Laura Marling will be taking the headline spot, alongside performances by Kate Rusby and Roddy Woomble.
Moseley Folk isn’t just one of the most rustic festivals around, it’s also one of the most affordable. Adult day tickets start at just £48.00, while a weekend ticket for the full three days is only £103.00.
Now in its twelfth year, Moseley Folk Festival is yet again bigger and better. Learning from its regulars, it has become a healthy mix of traditional, contemporary and experimental folk and acoustic music.
