Everything else is secondary.NO EXPECTATIONS: We’re all nervous & excited, but the only certainty is that what we expect will happen, probably won’t. That’s why it’s fun.SAFTEY IS SACROSANCT: We take this part VERY seriously. In case of weather/ emergency we may make hard decisions, but safety is paramount. ALWAYS.LIVE MUSIC: Let’s face it, it’s what it’s all about. It’s our therapy, our inspiration, our coffee, our muse, our passion. And we are incredibly fortunate for the chance to share in it, together, for 3 full days.We are counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds until we see you, our extended Folk Family, until then…- Folk On

BE KIND: to each other, to the artists, to the staff, and mostly to the large number of volunteers who make the festival happen.

BE PRESENT: We’re all coming to a speck of land in the sea to commune around music. Everything else is secondary.

NO EXPECTATIONS: We’re all nervous & excited, but the only certainty is that what we expect will happen, probably won’t. That’s why it’s fun.

In Bangladesh, 65% of girls are married as children. Pledge your support for ending child marriage within a generation: http://uni.cf/GS14
