The Kerrville Folk Festival

May 25 - June 11

The Kerrville Folk Festival returns for an unprecedented 51st year.

Once again The Quiet Valley Ranch outside of Kerrville, Texas will be turned into a music lover’s utopia for 18 days this spring. Beginning on Thursday May 25th and running through June 11th, this year’s festival promises to be one to be remembered.

A lineup of over 100 artists will perform during the festival on different stages and settings. Headliners include, Anais Mitchell, Mary Gauthier, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Brother Brothers, Good Looks, John Fullbright, Darrell Scott, The Milk Carton Kids and many many more (see full lineup here). Attendees can choose from many different ticket options ranging from the full 18 days with camping to single day and weekend passes.
Another huge attraction at the festival is the Grassy HIll New Folk Competition. Held every year on the first weekend of the Festival the competition highlights some of the country’s brightest emerging songwriters. It’s not only the winners of the competition (though that list is astonishing) but any one of the finalists that perform who may become a breakout star in the folk world.

Ask anyone that has attended the festival in the past and they will tell you without question that it is an experience you will never forget. The music and festival is not contained to what is presented on the stages. All over the campground you will find song circles around campfires, many of whom have been mainstays at the festival for decades. It is commonplace to hear some of the best established and unknown songwriters who will blow you away around these circles.

Learn more about the festival at www.KerrvilleFolkFestival.org Ticket info can be found here.

Press passes are available for all or part of the festival upon request. We’d love to have you out to cover the festival this year, just ask!

The Kerrville Folk Festival is a long standing pillar in the folk community both in Texas and in the country as a whole. Among the longest continuously running music festivals in the country, Kerrville is an event that many artists and fans plan their entire year around. Having helped launch the careers of such luminaries as Robert Earl Keen, Anais Mitchell, Lyle Lovett and many more, Kerrville’s dedication to the singer and the song is unparalleled. Held on the sprawling 50 acre Quiet Valley Ranch, the 18 day festival becomes a thriving community every spring. People from all corners of the country descend on the ranch, renewing friendships both old and new, celebrate the music they love and lose themselves in an atmosphere that is unlike any other.

Whether this is your first or your 51st trip to Kerrville you will be greeted with the customary “Welcome Home”.
