Folklore is the latest addition to Jersey’s event calendar, and plans are now well underway for a festival that will be unlike anything ever staged on the Island. With a capacity of just 5,000 attendees per day, alternative live music, comedy, theatre, poetry and film will take place across two stages at Peoples Park in Jersey on the weekend of June 30th and July 1st.

Following the recent announcement that 3- times Grammy-nominated artist Joan Armatrading will perform at the inaugural festival, the organisers are pleased to announce that they have confirmed the first of Folklore’s two Main Stage headliners. Topping the bill on Saturday 30th June is one of pop’s most legendary performers, Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison.
