Costa Del Folk – Folk Festival With A Difference
All folk music fans love a good festival, unfortunately more often than not memories of the experience involve standing in a damp, muddy field in bitterly cold weather! Well folk festival goers can now ditch their wellies, ban the brolly and forever erase the word ‘Portaloo’ from their mind as Enjoy Travel gives folk lovers the chance to experience the very first UK English speaking folk festival in the sun whilst staying in a hotel– Costa Del Folk Festival in Benalmadena, March 2014.
The line-up for the Costa del Folk features over 20 of the top names in British folk music, including Show of Hands, Demon Barbers, Tom McConville Band and The Mighty Doonans and headliners – Fairport Convention.
Hailed as the originators of British folk-rock music, Fairport Convention will be headlining the line-up for the five-day Costa del Folk. Apart from hosting their own, hugely-successful, annual Cropredy event, this will be Fairport’s only festival appearance in 2014.
Als Mike Harding probably one of the best known promoters of folk music, having hosted the BBC Folk programme for almost twenty years, once he was told about this new initiative agreed to compere the Costa Del Folk.
