Top Bands

Oysterband are a well-known English punk ceilidh band who have been on their musical journey for 45 years. They have won several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including Best Band twice. They will be playing at Warwick Folk Festival on their final tour before they retire as a touring band.

The Unthanks are an English folk group known for their eclectic approach in combining traditional English folk, particularly Northumbrian folk music with other musical genres.  With 14 records to date, they have earnt a Mercury Music Prize nomination, won Mojo Magazine Folk Album of the Year twice and were the only British folk representation in The Guardian’s and Uncut’s Best Albums of the Decade.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a group of Australian male singers who have attracted attention with a judicious combination of Georgian table songs, beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and a swag of original songs which seek to both celebrate the ‘boof’ and mock it.

Breabach are ranked among Scotland’s most skilled and imaginative contemporary folk acts. 2022 saw them release their latest studio album ‘Fàs’ and be awarded ‘Folk Band of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards.

New Location

The Festival moved to its new location, next to Warwick Castle, in 2022, which means all the venues and camping were on one site. The move proved to be a big hit with the festival goers who also enjoyed being closer to Warwick town.
