Linlithgow Folk Festival 2020 Cancelled


The safety of festival attendees, artists and volunteers is our top priority. With the world in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and living in uncertain times, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Linlithgow Folk Festival.

Over the coming period, we will continue to hold 'virtual' sessions on our facebook page - please drop in and enjoy the next one on Sunday 17th May.

We look forward to reuniting everyone on our return next year - with the 2021 festival being held between Wednesday 8th and Saturday 12th September 2021.

In the meantime, we wish everyone and their loved ones the very best of health.

The Linlithgow Folk Festival Association Team
