Southwell Goes Global!
Last year for the first time, we provided, via Micro Video, a live stream of the festival. This was made available free-of-charge via the internet live.southwellfolkfestival.org.uk and the streaming allowed for text messages to be sent in to us so that in between the performances, we broadcast messages from family and friends around the world on the giant video screens either side of the main stage. People watched the festival from all over the world including China and Peru! Micro Video will be returning in 2013. For all you techno junkies details of how to purchase a wifi connection will be available with the ticket information shortly.
The Festival only happens once a year but live folk and acoustic music is available all year round at many great venues in the area. Here is our new diary of folk events in the area. If you are a promoter or club organiser and want to feature your events in the diary please email your details.Read more »
