Countdown to Ely Folk Festival 2022


Ten days before the opening of Ely Folk Festival 2022 in his new home on Stuntney Estate south of Ely.

Festival spokeswoman Fionnuala Lennon said “We are rolling up our sleeves now to prepare the new site for our first visitors on July 8. The new festival site will provide a beautiful green backdrop to a great weekend of music, dancing and fun. We have a wonderful lineup of national and local folk and roots musicians, plenty of activities and entertainment for young visitors, and the colorful Morris Dancing Procession through the center of Ely on Saturday mornings. There’s something for every member of the family.’

This is Ely’s 36th folk festival. The stellar lineup includes Lindisfarne, the Sharon Shannon Trio, Holy Moly and The Crackers, De Temps Yesteryear, Heidi Talbot and Boo Hewerdine, Big Joe Bone, Steamchicken and Gabriel Moreno and The Quivering Poets.

As well as 10 concerts over the weekend, the festival will host three Ceilidhs, Morris dance performances, children’s activities, workshops, a real beer bar and a food and craft trading area.

The new festival site is located along the A142 Soham Road near Stuntney. A shuttle bus will link the site to Ely train station and the town centre. Camping is available on site for weekend visitors.

Festival tickets are still available with adult weekend tickets priced at £107 (discounts apply); and tickets available for individual days from £30 for an adult ticket for Friday.

Tickets can be purchased in advance via the festival website and will be available at the box office on the site itself from 1:00 p.m. on Friday July 8. The Festival accepts dogs.
