Heading to Derby Folk Festival ?
The 2018 Festival will take place from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 October 2018 – We had our “best ever festival” in 2017, and we’re planning a fantastic event once again.
2018 will be the 12th year that we’ve held the festival right in the centre of Derby. We’re really pleased with all we have achieved – we have a great location, fabulous acts, and a super-friendly atmosphere… we’d love you to come and join us!
Weekend tickets cover Friday 5th to Sunday 7th, with Thursday 4th evening concert being an add-on event (open to all, but at a special price to weekend ticket holders!)
We’ve been updating Artist and Programme pages as we’ve made announcements, so if you haven’t already done so, please keep checking back on the website to see what’s changed!
If you're driving to, or need a lift to the Derby Folk Festival, we offer cheap festival travel if you ride share with others on your way.

GoCarShare Booking System
Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.
A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.
We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:
- It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.
- It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.
- This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.
We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
