You are here

Get onboard the SOFF12 ship!

So here we are two weeks after the initial tickets launch and, well, were just about recovered! A big thanks to The Hot Sprockets, The Young Folk, Bunoscionn, TRAZ and the infamous Mr. Benny for having us dance well into the early hours!

Spirit of Folk is well and truly underway with bows being tested, falcons being flown and the Viking are in fact on their way to Dunderry Park this weekend to reek some havoc (in reality they are an immensely lovely and polite bunch of people!) Our line-up is shaping up nicely as well with a good mixture of folk, trad and bluegrass making it’s way to the stage in September!

Want to get on board?

Are you interested in helping out this year. Spirit of Folk is run by a small charity with big ideas and we need a team and community of like-minded and open hearted people to jump on board and get this ship sailing!

What we need:

PEOPLE: stage managers, stewards, artists, carpenters, cooks, plumbers (n.b. must be lovely and friendly folk!)

TENTS: do you have a big or small marquee, tent, tipi that you could part with for a weekend, if so get in touch and there will be some free tickets making their way to you soon!

LIGHTS: festoons, garden lights – you get the picture!

FURNITURE: tables, chairs, couches, swings

So if you have any of the above hibernating in your garage or back garden (including the people!) contact us and we would be delighted to take them off your hands for the weekend of the festival. 

All volunteers should apply through our volunteer application form

And don’t forget early bird tickets at just €65 for the whole weekend are still available so for more information visit
