Fresh Ayr Folk Fest is a brand new music festival, set in the heart of Ayrshire, South West Scotland.
It will bring established artists in the Folk, World and Roots scene to perform alongside new and emerging acts, both locally and from around the country.
Not only will the festival have some of Scotland’s finest artists, it will showcase some of the best acts from the rest of the UK and overseas.
Learn with some of the country’s finest!
Not only will you be able to watch some of your favourite acts (and some that will become your favourites!) you’ll be able to learn with them.
During the mornings and early afternoons, we’ll have instrumental workshops – just bring along your instrument!
Dancing for All
There’s plenty of opportunity to dance at the festival….
Not only can you strut your stuff while watching the amazing artists do their thing, you can birl about to your heart’s content at one of our ceilidhs.
Whether it’s the Dashing White Sergeant or the Military-2-Step you can let loose on the dancefloor!
Food + Drink
There be loads on offer to satisfy your taste buds and quench your thirst…
Not only will we be serving drinks from our beer tent and pop up bars, we’ll have local food vendors selling their culinary delights to satisfy the hungriest of festival goers.
Fun for Kids
and the young at heart!
For all those wee ones (and not so wee ones) we’ll have activities allowing them to create and learn throughout the day.
With arts and crafts on offer, along with an area to learn circus skills like juggling, diablo and stilt walking, they’ll be plenty for them to do to keep busy!
