Port Fairy Folk Festival program director Justin Rudge said he was thrilled to be revealing the first line-up for the 2022 Festival.

‘’We were ecstatic when our March Concert Series - which replaced the postponed major event this year - sold out within hours. It shows the thirst to experience live music in Port Fairy, with its extraordinary history, and the desire for audiences to return to our glorious seaside location to experience the best in music from around the world in the safest possible way.

The positive and future-thinking response from Port Fairy Folk Festival committee, staff and contractors, as well as the close-knit creative community has been overwhelming, highlighting the township’s passion to deliver world class events and show off our seaside village in all its glory.

We can’t wait to welcome artists from around Australia and the world to Port Fairy in 2022 as things continue to improve with the pandemic. Announcing the Festival, a full twelve months in advance will provide audiences – both new and established – with plenty of time to plan their Port Fairy experience,’’ said Justin.

The 45th Port Fairy Folk Festival will take place in Port Fairy, Victoria from 11-14 March 2022.
