The Doolin Folk Festival

Doolin co. Clare

With a heavy heart and much frustration, due to ongoing uncertainty around live music events, we are left with no option but to cancel this year’s Doolin Folk Festival and refund all ticketholders. All ticketholders will have received an email this morning. As you know, earlier in the year we took the decision to postpone the festival from its usual date in June to September, in the hope that restrictions around music would have eased somewhat. They haven’t. The government have promised a roadmap by the end of August but we have no idea of what will be in it and unfortunately we have to make a call on it. As it stands we are allowed to have 200 people seated outdoors. We cannot run the Doolin Folk Festival under these restrictions. It just wouldn’t be the Doolin Folk Festival that everybody knows and loves. We would rather wait until restrictions are gone and do it properly at a time when each one of us can dance and singalong and hug a stranger with abandon. We live in hope that the Doolin Folk Festival will be back in June 2022.
