You'll find well-known names from the mainstream at festivals such as Beautiful Days, SomersaultMTV Crashes Plymouth and GoldCoast Oceanfest. Visit Sidmouth Folk WeekDartmoor Folk FestivalFoxy Folk or Teignmouth Folk Festival and you’ll be treated to some of the best in British folk, set in idyllic surroundings.
