Enter our Band Competition

EFF_band_poster-2low (1)  Calling all up-and-coming amateur roots & folk acts. Would you like to perform on the main stage of Ely Folk Festival 2017 alongside fantastic acts such as the Sam Kelly Trio & TRADarrr? If so, enter our Band Competition run in association with the Ely Standard. Open to amateur solo, duo & group acts, it’s a great opportunity to win the chance to perform your music at one of the best weekend roots & folk music events in the UK. Last year’s winner Georgia Lewis & Friends has really raised their profile since playing at Ely and we’ve booked the band to come back and play this year. Closing date for entries is 21 April. Details on how to enter the competition can be found here.
