The Moseley Folk Festival Guide

Where: Moseley Park, Birmingham

Ticket Prices: £48 – £209

What’s On at Moseley 2017:

Moseley Folk may be one of the lesser-known events on the UK festival scene, but that only adds to its charm. Set in a private park with a capacity for just 3,000 people, it’s one of the most intimate musical events of the summer. It’s a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere with colourful pennants streaming between the trees, and quirky tents gathered around the seating areas. Moseley Park is perfect for a chilled-out end to the summer.

Hosting some incredible jazz, funk and soul acts, Moseley Folk has managed to maintain its special something, despite attracting big names in the past such as The Coral, The Proclaimers and 60’s pop icons The Monkees. The carnival spirit of the festival is as much about art and culture as music, with artisan foods on offer like roast pig, falafels, crepes and award-winning Thai and Carribean delicacies.
