The list of artists whose careers broke out after appearing on one of the workshop stages at Jericho Beach is too long to print. This year will just add more names to the list.” – Stuart Derdeyn, Vancouver Sun

From global grooves and roots rhythm to songs old and new, tunes that will warm your heart, touch a nerve, or make you kick up your heels – have we got a music festival for you!

On July 13 – 15 join us at Jericho Beach Park for another incredible weekend of music from close to home and around the globe.

We’ve got icons and upstarts and more than a few surprises, stunning newcomers and long-time favourites, and amazing new sounds to discover. From Neko Case and Ry Cooder to Rodney Crowell and James McMurtry; from The Dead South, Carole Pope and Archie Roach to Ranky Tanky, Wazimbo & Banda Kakana and Dakhabrakha, it's a gathering of sound, sight and experience you simply won't see anywhere else.


Thank you, Vancouver!

Vancouver Folk Music Festival is the BEST FESTIVAL in the City!

In a “who’s the best” poll seeking the Stars of Vancouver, the VFMF is truly honoured to again receive this very special #1 award.
