Fleadh and away….back to its roots

Fleadh... it's a family affair with something for everyone. From traditional folk melodies through to blues, indie-pop, and out the other side with US alt-country. And not forgetting a guy called Bob Dylan.

Now in its fourteenth year, making it London’s longest-running outdoor festival, Fleadh takes place in Finsbury Park this Sunday (20th June) from 11am, offering an ever colourful celebration of roots, folk and rock.

[R-Zone1]The event has become a firm favourite in the capital, with its own unique Irish flavour steeped in musical tradition.

VF will be there, and we look forward to welcoming Fleadh‘s return alongside thousands of revellers, following its absence from the festival calender last year.
Definitely back with a bang, this year the history-rich event boasts more than 20 acts over two stages, in what is already being touted one of the festival’s finest ever line-ups.

[L-Zone2]Bob Dylan headlines the event, heralding a welcome return since he last topped the bill in 1993. More contemporary attractions include Dublin funksters Republic of Loose, The Charlatans and Delays.

Billy Bragg joins the main stage to celebrate his 25 years in music, folk fans favourite Christie Moore makes another eagerly anticipated appearance, and California’s Counting Crows play their first ever Fleadh.

The smaller Borderline Stage will feature some of the today’s finest up-and-coming songwriters, with cult US folk singer John Prine making a rare UK appearance alongside alt-country act The Laura Cantrell Band – firm favourites of John Peel no less.
