Folk music event The Magpies Festival is back for 2023 – and boasts a line-up of some of the UK’s best folk, acoustic and Americana artists.
It follows sell-out successes of the previous festivals in 2022 and 2021.
The Magpies Festival returns to the parkland of stately home Sutton Park, near York, on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 August 2023.
The independent festival is run by Yorkshire-based transatlantic folk band, The Magpies.
The young, female band are passionate about championing gender equality in the music industry, as well as gender parity in both line-up and staff.
They aim to create a safe and comfortable environment for female musicians and festival goers.
The Magpies will be performing at the festival, with acts including Rachel Sermanni, Chris Difford, Edward II, New York Brass Band, Holy Moly & The Crackers, Blair Dunlop, and more.
Alongside the live music, there will be food, drinks and market stalls from independent local businesses. Festival-goers can also take part in activities like yoga, junk percussion workshop, and learn circus skills.
Festival director Holly Brandon said, “We are so excited to put on The Magpies Festival.
“We’ve been over the moon at the response to the festival, from the incredible performances from world class folk musicians to the high energy spirit that our attendees brought along, it feels like a whole new feel to a folk festival.”
The festival is open to everyone, including children and families and encourages young adults to experience the upbeat atmosphere of the event.
Tickets are currently on sale from £30, with day, weekend and camping options available. Children under 11 go free.
