Woodford Line-Up Announcement Set For October

The Woodford Folk Festival music programmer Chloe Goodyear is travelling the world to sign artists and put together the line-up for 2013 to be announced in October.

The Woodford Folk Festival will celebrate its 28th year when it opens on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast on December 27.

Each year, the Woodford Folk Festival features music from folk to world, blues, indigenous, reggae, country to traditional, hip-hop and blue grass. An aggregate 113,000 audience attended over the six days which saw over 200 artists and musicians perform across 25 venues.

Woodford is a family music event as opposed to a music festival. “While everything you read about Woodford seems to talk about music, we organise the festival to create a platform for many forms of artistic expression much of which comes from our audience. However our patrons talk about that “Woodford experience” which pleases us because that’s what we’re aiming for” said Festival Director Bill Hauritz.

“Many of my most formative experiences as a songwriter and a person happened at the Woodford Folk Festival,” says singer songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke. “I am still a major fan of the festival. I love being able to see comedy, circus stuff, debates, films, music in lots of different spaces over the course of a week. It’s a huge festival, yet very approachable. There is a beautiful community atmosphere at Woodford that I haven’t seen as much at other festivals”.

The Woodford Folk Festival line-up will be revealed on October 19.
