Brought to you by the brains behind Moon Dance, Folkloria will hold its inaugural folk festival in November, offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy the warmer weather.
The festival debutant will grace the lawns of Simon Hackett Winery, allowing festival-goers to pull up a picnic rug and relish in all that is blues, roots, and folk music.
The open-air event will feature performances from well-known names including Timberwolf, Tom West and the Voice Australia’s 2018 finalist, AP D’antonio.
Ukulele Death Squad’s B.S Roberts will also be launching his first solo EP at the event.
The occasion will see Simon Hackett’s cellar door transform into a dedicated gin bar, offering local heavy-hitters Never Never, 78 Degrees and Prohibition.
Simon Hackett Winery, Pirate Life and Hills Cider will also provide further boozy refreshments for the event.
Folkloria’s Tim Klaosen says although the festival had been in his mind for a few years, a last-minute decision to go ahead will see some of South Australia’s folk talent showcased sooner than anticipated.
“When [Moon Dance] sold out relatively quickly I knew it was the right time to pull the trigger and have a crack at putting on Folkloria.
“It was a bit of a mad scramble last week booking the artists – with plenty of help from my dad who considers himself to be an Adelaide blues & folk aficionado.
“I just hope that people will come and have a good time, and then maybe they hit up some more folksy live gigs at brick and mortar venues.”
A return bus service will also be offered from the Gilbert Street Hotel to Simon Hackett Winery, offering .
While food trucks for the festival are awaiting confirmation, Folkloria attendees are encouraged to bring their own food and picnic rugs.
The event will also adhere to COVID-safe guidelines and have COVID marshals ensuring surfaces are sanitised and social distancing measures are followed.
Folkloria will be held at Simon Hackett Winery on Saturday, November 1.
Tickets for the event and bus service can be purchased online from Wednesday, September 23.
