Liverpool’s International Festival of
Folk, Roots and Acoustic Music
24th, 25th, 26th & 27th AUGUST 2018 ALBERT DOCK LIVERPOOL
Folk on The Dock is a folk, roots and acoustic music festival that celebrates the role that Liverpool’s waterways have played in exporting and importing music around the world. Now in its third year, it is continuing to expand from its base at the spectacular Albert Dock in Liverpool. With over ten stages and 200 artistes performing annually, this urban festival is attracting music lovers and performers from all over the world. Also incorporating the Liverpool Shanty Festival with music on boats around the water’s edge, the contemporary Dock Stage is hosted by the legendary Janice Long. Previous artists performing at Folk On The Dock include Blair Dunlop, Wildwood Kin, The Christians, Moulettes, Lee Southall, Gilmore & Roberts and Henry Priestman. In 2018 a new venue will be added to the August Bank Holiday festival programme with a fantastic, ticketed launch event with a headline artist on Friday 24th August, in the stunning Museum of Liverpool.
