In the first week following opening of its box office, Ely Folk Festival has experienced record ticket sales far outstripping sales in a similar period previous years. Its reputation as one of the top folk music events in the country combined with a strong performer line-up for the 2010 festival has guaranteed huge interest and lots of festival-goers are ensuring they buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Andy Wall, Chairman of the Festival Committee said “We are thrilled to have sold over £20,000 worth of tickets in our first week. We are confident that the 2010 festival is going to be the best yet and a great event to celebrate the festival’s 25th anniversary.”
This year’s festival line-up includes Oysterband, The Demon Barber Roadshow, Faustus, New Essex Bluegrass Band, Vin Garbutt and Lau – winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2010.
