The lineup includes Lindisfarne, the Sharon Shannon Trio, Holy Moly & The Crackers, De Temps Antan, Heidi Tabo & Boo Hewerdine, Big Joe Bone, Steamchicken and Gabriel Moreno & The Quivering Poets.
Festival spokesperson Fionnuala Lennon said: “The new venue will provide a beautiful green backdrop for a great weekend of music, dancing and fun.
“We have a wonderful lineup of national and local folk and roots musicians, lots of activities for young people and the colorful morris dancing procession through the center of Ely on Saturday mornings.”
In addition to 10 concerts over the weekend, the festival will host three ceilidhs, workshops, a real beer bar and a food and craft retail space.
